Catalogue de Vente No. 1 de la Nouvelle Série. This auction catalogue offers items from the collection of bookseller William S. Kundig (and others)--ranging from fourteenth-century illustrated manuscripts from France (a Latin Bible) and Italy (Aesop's fables) to printed books of the early twentieth century. Many books, letters and works of art are represented in black-and-white illustrations scattered throughout the text or in the plates that follow. The volume includes a two-page spread showing a 1511 map of the world in red and black. Also illustrated is a document signed by Raphael. The catalogue is soiled and moderately worn. A label pasted at the bottom of the front wrapper indicates that this copy came from the bookseller P.-L. Bader of Geneva; a bookplate pasted on the inside of the front wrapper indicates that it also was part of the reference library and stock of H.P. Kraus.
