Title

Bibliotheca Hohendorfiana, ou Catalogue de la Bibliothèque de Feu Monsieur George Guillaume Baron de Hohendorf …

Publisher

The Hague: Abraham de Hondt,

1720.

Description

The sale catalogue of the famous library of Georg Wilhelm, Freiherr von Hohendorf (ca. 1670–1720) is the first to segregate Aldine imprints into a category of their own. The auction never actually took place, as the collection was purchased en bloc by the Vienna Hofbibliothek, where it still resides in the successor institution, the Ӧsterreichische Nationalbibliothek.
