1824 · Paris
Literature: J. Jacques Dubarry, "Le premier siecle d'une des doyennes des maisons d'edition medicales et scientifiques: J.-B. Bailliere, fondee en 1818" (Paris, 1986).
The present catalogue consists of 14 pages, ending with an announcement of two books currently in the press; we have been unable to discover if 16 pages were originally issued because no other copy dated "Aout 1824" can be located. There is an 1825 Bailliere catalogue at Bibl. Sainte-Genevieve which contains 16 pages.
Our Bailliere stock catalogue predates by 40 years any comparable example held by the Grolier Club, and by 12 years any Bailliere auction catalogue. (Inventory #: 2384)
