Meunier issued this plaquette showing a woman at a bookbinding sewing frame in 1900 (Berger C32). Henry Morris owns a copy of the original and thought it worth reproducing. He gives a short historical sketch of Meunier in the brochure. This is also discussed in Marianne Tidcombe's book Women Bookbinders (The British Library and Oak Knoll Press, 1996).
