NotesThe fifth and final lifetime edition of Brunet's great bibliography, first published in 1810, and here extensively revised over the following five decades. A tremendous bibliographic undertaking, listing tens of thousands of books, it is still widely used and cited today.
6 volumes, octavo (240 x 152 mm). Contemporary dark blue half morocco, spines lettered in gilt, raised bands, blue marbled boards and endpapers.
Lightly rubbed and worn, contents foxed with some repairs, a few leaves (pp. ix-xxvi) loose in vol. 6. A very good set.
