Also known as Henri Nicolle de Ladevèze.

The son of a prosperous Norman farmer, Nicolle was a royalist journalist before becoming a publisher. He received an excellent education at the Maison de Sainte-Barbe in Paris and was destined to become a teacher before the dissolution of the college under the Revolution. During the Revolution he ran and edited the counter-revolutionary Journal français ou Tableau politique de Paris from 1792-93, and collaborated on the Courrier universel, Petit Gautier and L'Eclair. He was briefly imprisoned in January 1793 but was protected by the Girondins and his paper only closed with the Girondin press on 2 June 1793. He was also proscribed in 1795 and 1797 before being amnestied.

He established his publishing business in 1797 with financial support from Bertin de Veaux, only gaining his licence (brevet) in October 1812. His business was taken over by his nephew Charles Gosselin in 1821. In 1821, he was appointed director of the new collège Sainte-Barbe alongside his brother, the exiled abbé Charles-Dominique Nicolle.

Gabriel-Henri Nicolle's publishing business can be found operating out of several addresses over the years. These included: 56 rue du Bouloi (au Bureau de la Librairie, 1798-1802); 26 rue des Jeûneurs (1802-1803); Quai Malaquais (1803-1804): 33 rue des Petits-Augustins (à la Librairie stéréotype, 1805-1808); and 12 rue de Seine (à la Librairie stéréotype, 1809-1821). He also published works by J-J Bathélemy, William Coxe, Mme de Stael, Reynaud de Montlosier and William Roscoe.
