Amsterdam: P. Yver, . The rare sale catalogues, largely priced in a contemporary hand, of this comprehensive collection of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish pictures, prints, and drawings. These are the French editions bound together (there were editions in Dutch published simultaneously). The first catalogue (124 lots), with most buyers' names and fully priced, consists exclusively of Dutch paintings, mostly 17th-century, by artists such as Berchem, Eeckhout, van Goyen, Lairesse, Maas, Metsu, Potter, Steen, Teniers, van de Velde Elder & Younger, Wouwerman, Wynands, etc. The contents of each painting are described, along with comments and measurements. According to the contemporary annotator, Yver, Amstel, and Fouquet bought many of the lots. Devoted to drawings and prints, the second catalogue (1545 lots), fully priced in a contemporary hand as well as the annotator's comments on several lots, describes 1006 drawings, 537 prints, and two armoires. The majority of the contents are gathered in 17 recueils (A-Q), but the pieces were sold separately. The remaining lots were either grouped into 24 livres or offered individually. Despite the exceptional volume of artworks, the catalogue frequently offers descriptions of the contents, quality, and condition of the lots. Fine copies, copiously annotated. Engraved bookplate of the prominent 19th-century art collector Gaston Pannier ("No. 110"). ❧ I. Lugt 2323. II. Lugt 2349.
