Henry-Auguste (1775-1854) and Arthur (1826-1904) Brölemann

The manuscripts collected by Henry-Auguste Brölemann and his son Arthur may often be recognised by the printed octagonal blue-edged paper lable in the bottom left corner of the upper pastedown, inscribed with a shelfmark above price-code; the bookplate is not always present:

{short description of image} Brölemann bookplate and label

There is often also an inscription at the top edge of the front pastedown (as in the image on the right) or an adjacent fflyleaf, referring to the scarce privately-printed catalogue (Lyons, 1897), and another price-code. The manuscripts were inherited by Madame Etienne Mallet ad were sold at Sotheby's on 4 May 1926.
