We would refrain from inventing it if unfortunately it was not existing, for fear of making a mistake in the initial mixture. It is Mauriès himself that would need to be invented, but how? » Michel Crépu, La Revue des Deux Mondes, juillet-août 2009. Thanks to this irreplaceable prince of good taste, any modern scholar now benefits from a kind of ideal library. » Alexandre Fillon, Livres Hebdo, 10 avril 2009. « Elegant and eclectic magazine; publishing house with meticulous and deliciously « unactual » works; unclassifiable brand looking like the ideal Library, put together by a lover of art and literature, a subtle writer and inveterate collector… Therefore we attempt to define Le Promeneur, if precisely the brand did not escape all definition. » Christine Rousseau, Le Monde des livres, 8 mai 2009.
