"A second variety of bibliographical compilation based largely on catalogues of private libraries serves both scholars and dealers. It consists in excerpting the titles of books believed to be rare and presenting them in a list...Perhaps the best known and successful compilation of this kind is Johannes Vogt, Catalogus...liborum rariorum, which had five editions between 1732 and 1793, These sixty years represent roughly the period in which compilations were most popular in Germany." Taylor pp. 42-43.
