Notes Part of the Charles Ramsden Collection of Signed Bindings. In an early nineteenth century gold-tooled black morocco binding signed by Germain-Simier. See Julien Flety, Dictionnaire des reliures francais ayant exerce de 1800 a nos jours, 1988. Macchi states; first half of century, Paris, bound by Germain-Simier. Appears in the 1832-1849 Almanachs, but may have worked on his own earlier. Addresses: Bons Enfans 34 (1832), Pagevin 2 (1835), St. Honoré 357 (1836), Croix des Petits-Champs 19 (1840), St. Honoré 245 (1847). Possibly a son-in-law of the younger Simier. Specimens of his work are illustrated in Descamps-Scrive (Bibliothèque, II, 98) and Rahir (Sale catalogue, VI, 2027). C. Ramsden, French Bookbinders, p. 92.
