Boyer was a short-lived Parisian publisher of the classical era.

In 1775 Charles-Georges Boyer (1743 – 1806 or 1807) married into the Le Menu family, which had a music publishing company, originally started by Christophe Le Menu in 1758. In 1783 he took over his stepmother's firm, and then in 1784 bought Jean-Baptiste Venier's publishing firm. After about ten years, in 1796, he sold his business to publisher Jean-Henri Naderman .

Boyer published works by mainly foreign composers: Boccherini, Cambini, Clementi, Lorenziti and Sarti, Haydn, Stamitz, Vaňhal, Kreutzer, Leopold Kozeluch and Sterkel.
