Cailleau et Fils, Paris. 1791. Second Edition, 3 vols., xxiv, 550, ; [iv], 556; [iv], 524pp., quarter calf, rubbed. This work was the leading rare book bibliography between De Bure and Brunet. "The foundation on which Jacques-Charles Brunet built the 'Manual du Libraire' and thus to modern bibliography... Cailleau's 'Dictionnaire' continues the bibliographical traditions established by Osmont. He offers a judicious selection of both good and rare books with their prices and some supplementary information... as he says, he has based the 'Dictionnaire' on nearly the hundred priced sale catalogues" — Taylor, Catalogues of Rare Book, pp. 32-33. These sale catalogues are a particularly important feature of the work, and are listed at the beginning of the first volume. Peignot, p.396; Petzholdt 84.
