Research Query: Catalogue of Abraham Boukabza

Dear colleagues,

I am attempting to locate an important and very rare 19th-century catalogue: a list of the books sold by Abraham Boukabza, a bookseller from mid-19th century Algiers. The title is "רשימת הספרים אלי ינבאעו ענד ר׳ אברהם בוכ׳בזא וחברו — Catalogue de Abraham Boukabza et," and it was printed in Algiers by Boukabza in 1886. It is 6 pages, comprising some 200 titles. It is described briefly in Attal and Harroch's bibliography of Algerian Jewish printing (1988), where Attal indicates that he had a photocopy of this booklet in his private collection.
