  1. Principes de morale has translation publisher



Louis-Alexandre Jombert was the younger brother and part successor of Parisian bookseller Charles-Antoine Jombert. With his brother-in-law Louis Cellot, he acquired the stock of his father, Charles-Antoine Jombert, in September 1775; around this time he had also been the King's bookseller for artillery and engineering.

He was the son-in-law (from May 1779) of printer/bookseller François-Ambroise Didot. His brothers-in-law Pierre Didot (elder) and Pierre-Nicolas-Firmin Didot succeeded him as booksellers for artillery and engineering in 1789-1790.

Jombert retired to Saint-Hilaire-sur-Loire (Saint-Hilaire-Fontaine), where he acquired land in October 1786 and was President of the Administration of the canton of Nocle in 1796-1798; then to the Château des Noittes in Vereaux, Cher, some time before 1809.

He died on 4th November 1811.
