The names of literary greats are inscribed in the pediment of the publishing house Calmann-Lévy, founded in 1836. Initially a small firm specialized in editing plays, its founder, Simon Lévy, who had recently arrived from  Lorraine where he was a peddler, would run the business with his youngest son, Michel. This latter quickly proved to be an exceptional editor. He is not yet twenty when he publishes Théophile Gautier; some of the most prestigious names of 19th century literature are soon to follow: Dumas, Baudelaire, Flaubert, Hugo, Sand, Lamartine, Stendhal and Nerval.
