(Lots) More Libri Catalogues

Almost three years ago I did a post about some Guglielmo Libri catalogues of manuscripts that were available online.

Ten days ago the 'Histoire de la Bibliophilie' blog had a long post about a much larger number of catalogues of manuscripts described and/or sold by him (although many of them do not include medieval manuscripts):
Although many title-pages are reproduced, the post does not provide links to digitized copies of the relevant catalogues, but some of them are easy enough to find. The Catalogue of the choicer portion of the magnificent library, formed by M. Guglielmo Libri ..., 1 August 1859, and 12 following days, for example, can be found and downloaded from Google Books here.
