ABOUT







Pelzin et Drevon [H. Leymarie]

Printer in Lyon from the 18th century until 1810, when it became A.M. Pelzin (1810-1828), then Cl. J. Pelzin (1828-1833) and then L. Boitel (1833-1852). Léonard (or Léon) Boitel (b. 1806, Rive de Gier, d. 1855, Irigny) published some specimen books. In an 1846 book, he showed a roman alphabet that was designed by H. Leymarie and engraved on wood by Brevière. Laurent Hippolyte Leymarie (b. 1809, Lyon, d. 1844, Saint-Rambert en Bugey) was a painter, illustrator and engraver. Louis Henri Brevière, b. 1797, Forges les Eaux, d. 1869, Hyères) was an illustrator and wood engraver in Rouen and then in Paris.

Boitel's printing enterprise was left to A. Vingtrinier (1852-1876), which was then passed to A. Waltener (1880-1894), and on to P. Legendre (1894-1932), to finally become Etablissements Legendre in 1932, still in Lyon.
