Reprint of the second revised, corrected and expanded edition published in Paris in 1924 by Francisque Lefrançois, Libraire de la Sociéte des Bibliophiles françois (Besterman 912). Bibliophiles desiring to collect could, at one time, turn to such publications as this. Books sought ("recherchés") for collecting are divided into three lists: those sought "for the text," sought "for the illustrations," and those "interesting from the point of view of typography." An introduction, with reproductions of illustrations mostly from incunabula, precedes these lists. An alphabetical list of works cited follows the lists. A few pages on bindings, manuscripts, bibliographies, and other matters close the book! Over 6000 entries.
