Schmidt & Wagner (New Orleans, Louisana)
Schmidt & Wagner
No 39 Natchez street, at the sign of the Big Ledger
- (1848)"We yesterday saw as splendid a specimen of book-binding as has ever been executed in this city. It was in fact equal to the bindings of a majority of the Annuals issued by the London press, and in regard to richness of design and delicacy of taste cannot be surpassed by any of the craft in the Union. This specimen of art was executed by Messrs. Schmidt & Wagner No. 39 Natchez street, at the sign of the "Big Ledger". We commend the firm to the patronage of the public." The Daily Crescent, June 28, 1848.
