¶ Delormois — Le nouveau teinturier parfait (1769)

October 25, 2017

Comments Off on ¶ Delormois — Le nouveau teinturier parfait (1769)

Delormois. Le nouveau teinturier parfait. 2 vols. Paris: Charles-Antoine Jombert, 1769.

The Wellcome Library (which owns only vol. 2) describes this as from the 1898 Sotheby auction, but the book does not appear in that catalogue, probably because it is concealed under “and others,” such as in lot 432.

Provenance: Morris. — Richard Bennett. — Sotheby 1898, perhaps lot 432. — Henry Wellcome. — Wellcome Library (Closed stores EPB / A 34108/A).

Reference: MS catalogue (2), no. 606.
