Biographical data
Name: Lécrivain, Louis Siméon  
Born: 1798
Died: 1860
 
Notes:
First names provided by Dominique Thimognier. Since he signed himself 'S. Lécrivain' in Le Palamède, I presume he used his second name preferentially. His death is reported in the July 1860 issue of La (Nouvelle) Régence (p.221), so he probably died in June. His age at death is given as 62, so presumably he was born in 1797 or 1798.
