Charles Leclerc edited the 1878 catalogue (and supplements) of Americana offered for sale by the French firm Maisonneuve and Co. (Besterman 310, Blogie 634 & 637) By the time of the last supplement (1887), the company's name had changed to Maisonneuve Frères & Ch. Leclerc. The combined work includes well over 3620 entries dealing with North and South (and Central) America and the Philippines. The first catalogue was issued in 1867. Also include is the second, and much more scarce, volume which covers Abbe Favre (1888) and Pages et Mourier (1889). Lightly stained on the front cover, else near fine. From the private reference library of Dorothy Sloan with a commemorative bookplate loosely inserted.
