1. Overview

fl. 1882. Paris. Not a typefoundry, but a printing house. However, their specimen of 1882 identifies many of the foundries which supplied their types and is useful as several of these foundries are not well represented. Typefoundries shown include: Battenberg, Digney, Dupont, Mayeur, Pinard, René, and Virey. There are also references to Elzévier, but surely this must be the name of a face, not the 17th century typefounding operations of the Elzévirs.
