Jean-Jerome Imbault (1753-1832) was known both as a virtuoso violinist and as a publisher in his lifetime. However, he was substantially less notable as a violinist.
Imbault only gradually entered the world of music publishing; at first he copublished prints with Sieber, the first in 1783. 1784 marked the beginning of separate Imbault prints. The firm issued cataloques between 1786 and 1803, and this makes enumerating their publications easy; in 1791 they issued a thematic catalogue. The taste of the publisher was notable; he published works of Haydn, Clementi, Viotti, Mozart, Boccherini, Cimarosa, and others. The firm was sold to P.H. Janet in 1812.
