Frits Lugt's Répertoire is one of the most widely consulted art historical reference works and lists more than 100,000 art sales catalogues of the period 1600 to 1925 from libraries in Europe and the USA.

The impressive four-volume work Répertoire des catalogues de ventes publiques intéressant l'art ou la curiosité ("Repertory of Catalogues of Public Sale concerned with Art or Objets d'art") by Frits Lugt (1884-1970) contains bibliographic descriptions of auction catalogues. The catalogues are arranged in strict chronological order and provide meticulous details of auctions, as well as recording annotations written in the catalogues. Lugt also indicates the library where the catalogue may be consulted.

This online edition of Lugt's Répertoire covering the period 1600-1900, increases the value of the rare original work as it provides a multitude of search options. Many recently discovered catalogues have been added and corrections to the original work have been made. The database can be consulted both in French and in English.

The online edition of Lugt's work for the period 1600-1900 is a separate database but at the same time the "entrance gate" to Brill's publication Arts Sales Catalogues Online (ASCO).
