Biography[edit]

He was born in Paris, the son of a bookseller. He began his bibliographical career by the preparation of several auction catalogues, notable examples being that of the Count d’Ourches (Paris, 1811) and an 1802 supplement to the 1790 Dictionnaire bibliographique de livres rares of Duclos and Cailleau. In 1810 the first edition of his bibliographical dictionary, Manuel du libraire et de l’amateur des livres (3 vols.), appeared. Brunet published successive editions of the dictionary, which rapidly came to be recognized as the first book of its class in European literature.[1] The last of the 6 volumes of the 5th edition (1860–1865) of the Manuel du libraire contained a classified catalogue (French: Table Méthodique) in which the works are arranged in classes according to their subjects. A supplement to this edition was published (1878–1880) by P. Deschamps and G. Brunet.

Among Brunet’s other works are Nouvelles Recherches bibliographiques (1834), Recherches sur les éditions originales des cinq livres du roman satirique de Rabelais (1852), and an edition of the French poems of J.G. Alione d’Asti, dating from the beginning of the 16th century (1836). Brunet has been praised as a worth successor to Guillaume-François Debure. In 1848 he received the decoration of the legion of honor.

See also the notice by Antoine Le Roux de Lincy prefixed to the catalogue (1868) of his own valuable library.
