Bookbinder Pralon of Dijon
Ownership mark
Reference
Notes Part of the Charles Ramsden Collection of Signed Bindings. Macchi states; bound by Hubert Pralon. This pupil of Mairet was born at Dijon on July 30 1797, and died at Vannerie 69 in 1871. His only other known address is Chaudronnerie 27 in 1832. He was succeeded by his son Claude and then by his grandson. All the family worked for the Dijon Library. His early bindings, as typified by this marbled calf specimen in C. Ramdsen's collection (French bookbinders, p. 164) dating about 1821, are in the direct Mairet tradition, and show many of Mairet's usual tools. Later bindings, as shown in the Schiffer collection (S. de Ricci, French signed bindings, III, 313) are typical of the period, but indicate that he had abandoned the classical "motif" of his distinguished master.
