Summary note:
Jean Paul Barbier-Mueller has been collecting old books since he was 15 years old. For more than 70 years, he went through bookshops and auction rooms to gather what is certainly one of the most important collections of French poetry of the second half of the sixteenth century. Ronsard, initiator of the Pleiade, had a special place in this collection, with more than 120 works, some unique. His daughter, Diane Barbier-Mueller, also a bibliophile, was chosen to draw up an inventory of this collection, so that all his wealth could be made public. This inventory lists the books by author's name, title - faithfully transcribed - edition, size, description of the binders and provenance.--Translation by Libraire Droz.
