cover 1860s



Onésime Philemon Legouix (1809-1867) started a music retail store and publishing business in June of 1839. It passed from father to son: Gustave Legouix (1844-1916) in 1867 and then Robert Legouix in 1919. The store Libraire Musicale R. Legouix, was still in operation in 1960 at the same address. Onésime Legouix's older son Isidore-Edouard Legouix, (1834-1916) was a composer. A publisher named Ernest (later Napoléon) Legouix operated in Paris from ca.1832 until 1873 but the firm of G. Legouix published a letter advertising they had no connection with this firm about two weeks after the former's bankruptcy.
