  The Fritsch sale catalog had the third edition of 1827. In that catalog's biographical note we are told that Thiébaut was born in Sedan 1770 and died in Paris in 1850. He came from a family famous in the annals of Champagne. He distinguished himself in the Revolution, being wounded five times at Kaiserslautern in 1793. Then in 1796, after a brief period as an administrator, he joined General Moreau's army in Bavaria, where he saved the life of a Hessian officer, whose daughter he was given in marriage. In 1808 he became a librarian at “La Mazarine” [in Paris – the oldest public library in France] and became head librarian in 1849, shortly before his death. He refused all honors and decorations and died a poor man.
