Jean Baptiste Delambre letter : Paris, to Mme. Lafrançais Lalande : ALS, 1807 April 16.

Letter to Mme. Lafrana̧is Lalande relates to the auction of her late uncle's library, and to those who wish to produce a catalog of this library for an upcoming auction. Delembre suggests that she make a list of titles to be auctioned, and that titles related to mathematics and astronomy be listed separately, as those are anticipated to be of particular interest.
