[Stock catalogues, numbered series:] 56-60

Paris, Arthur Lauria, 1962-1967
Five catalogues (24 cm), as issued, in publisher’s wrappers. - Arthur Lauria entered the antiquarian booktrade in Naples, issuing there, as “Arturo Lauria”, a series of undated catalogues of “Livres anciens et rares a prix reduits” (no. V, appeared c. 1911; no. XVII, was published at Putignano: Officina Tipografica De Robertis, c. 1916). He arrived in Paris after the War, and as “Arthur Lauria” continued the numeration of his Neapolitan catalogues, initially from premises at 3 Square Robiac, then from 157 avenue Malakoff (catalogue 31, c. 1932), and finally from 174 boulevard Haussmann (catalogues 37-60, 1936-1967). Lauria is listed in book trade directories (”Domicile, sur rendezvous seulement. Assez restreint stock”) until 1968. His collections of drawings, miniatures, and other works of art, were sold posthumously in Hôtel Drouot, on 13 June 1969. ¶ Minor damage to wrappers; good copies.
