Reference
Notes Part of the Charles Ramsden Collection of Signed Bindings. See Julien Flety, Dictionnaire des reliures francais ayant exerce de 1800 a nos jours, 1988. Macchi states: first half century, Paris, bound by Capé. His name does not appear in any of the Almanach of the period. A half calf binding on D'Arlincourt's Ismailie (1828) and a full calf binding on Beranger's works dated 1837 are in the C. Ramsden collection (French Bookbinders, p. 46-47). Capé is an example of a binder who did his best work at the start and never reached the same level in his later and more prosperous old age. Mr. Ellic Howe, 5 Thurloe Close London S.W., possessed a specimen book of leathers and papers, bound by Capé about 1840 and inscribed as follows: "Cet album d'échantillons a été composé par Capé, relieur du Roi, au Louvre pour moi L. HUGOT (Conservateur des Bibliothèques Royales) qui le conserve comme un souvenir de mon cher Capé. Interesting specimens are: veau antique (highly surfaced); veau solitaire (?); papier ombré (marbled); chiné (highly surfaced); d'Annonay (blotted effect).

Reference Paul Culot, Reliures et reliures decorees en France a l'epoque romantique, Bruxelles, 1995
Notes Part of the Charles Ramsden Collection of Signed Bindings. Macchi states; c. 1840, Paris, attributed to Frédéric Guillaume Muller. He was associated with J. Hering between 1830 and 1834, rue Coquenard 18, then 24. At this last address, Muller (without "F") is shown in the Almanach du Commerce of 1835. In the mean time, in 1834 Joseph Thouvenin aîné died; Muller bought the atelier tools and signed R. E. (ELIÉ PAR?) MULLER SUC.(cesseur de) THOUVENIN. His participation at the 1834 exhibition was rewarded with a bronze medal. He died on august 30 th 1836. The workshop was bought by Jean-Edouard Niedrée who married Muller's widow. Muller's signature as Thouvenin's successor appears on with French Restoration panel-stamps decorated bindings. The same signature is to be found on several examples concerning Tableaux pittoresques de l'Inde adorned with a à l'indienne panel-stamp, tooled on paper, silk or velvet. See H. Béraldi, La reliure, II, p. 1, 27, 30; Bibliotheca Wittockiana, Relieurs et reliures, 1995, p. 364-365, n. 174, p. 529; J. Fléty, Dictionnaire, p. 133-134; C. Ramsden, French bookbinders, p. 144-145).

Reference Paul Culot, Reliures et reliures decorees en France a l'epoque romantique, Bruxelles, 1995
Notes Part of the Charles Ramsden Collection of Signed Bindings. 1 pair of clasps. Part of the Charles Ramsden Collection of Signed Bindings. Signed by Simier. Macchi states;Simier workshop comprises: 1) René: he is not mentioned in the 1797-1798 Almanac. Tradition states that he left the army about 1798 and the 1847 Almanch refers to him founding his workshop in 1800. Between 1809-1812 he was "Binder to the Empress Marie Louise." In 1826 "Simier Père et Fils" are listed in the Almanach as "Binders to the King", Madame and the Duc de Bordeaux". Simier appeared in the directories from 1809-1826, when the entry became "Père et Fils". He received a Medal of Honour in 1819. His first address in 1809 was Neuve-des Bons-Enfants 35. From 1814 he moved to St. Honoré 152. H. Béraldi however (Les reliures, I, p. 35) gives his address in 1810 as Passage Radziwill, which leads out of Neuve-des-Bons-Enfants to rue Valois; 2) Alphonse, fils: he appears on his own in 1821 at Bertin Poirée 6 in the 1821 Almanach and then in 1826 appears with his father at rue St. Honoré 152 where he carried on the business under the family name after his father's death (C. Ramsden, French bookbinders, p. 190); 3) Jean (?): this binder who appears in the 1847-1849 Almanachs is reputed to be a nephew of the elder Simier. An identical example is kept in Bruxelles, Bibliotheca Wittockiana, Relieurs et reliures, 1995, p. 129, n. 56.
