(pp. 41-48 with a light waterstain in the margin) Charles Nodier (1780-1844) settled in Paris after he had been appointed librarian of the Arsenal library in 1824. There he soon became one of the leaders of the literary life in Paris. He assembled three collections which were not very large but contained only carefully chosen books. In the Grolier Club catalogue of French auction sales # 595 is mentioned that "Lonchamp records that Noder compiled this catalogue himself; according to Graesse, many of the lots sold for extremely low prices". Rare catalogue.
