Middelburg: S. van Benthem, Boekverkooper, in den Kortendelft, 1803. First Edition. Softcover. 8vo; , 10 pp. 63 lots, unpriced. Recent sympathetic wrappers. Tear to gutter margin of last leaf, fore edge uncut. Very good. Item #1589
¶ Scarce: OCLC cites only the Frick copy which lacks pp. 9-10 (!) -- KVK adds no further locations.
¶ This rare sale catalogue lists a number of significant Dutch and Flemish paintings by such masters as Pieter de Bloot, van der Laan, Isaac van Ostade, Jan Huchtenburg, Jan Horemans, Pieter Nollekens, Cornelis Troost, Dirck Hals, and Aelbert Cuyp, and even David Teniers the Elder, all with sizes in the margins. The catalogue, although now unfindable in private ownership, was certainly important to Hofstende de Groot who cited it no less than twenty times (!)
