Auction catalogs.
Note: A further sale of the Pinelli library took place on 2 February 1790; its catalog was entitled "Bibliotheca Pinelliana. Appendix".
The present catalog purports to be "an exact abridgment" of the six volume catalog by Jacopo Morelli published at Venice in 1787. The entire collection sold by Pinelli's heirs to the bookseller, James Edwards, did not, however, reach London. While in transit, on three vessels, one of the ships was captured by pirates and the books thrown into the sea. Edwards' present sale of the remainder brought £9,000. cf. Ottino and Fumagalli, Bibliotheca bibliographica italica, no. 4180.
The unnumbered section is a revised order of sale.

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"

Wildcards

Use * or ? to search for alternate forms of a word. Use * to stand for several characters, and ? for a single character: e.g. optim* will find optimal, optimize or optimum; wom?n will find woman and women.

Boolean Searching

Use AND and OR between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery. Boolean terms must be in uppercase.
