I bought the book a while back. I contacted the edtitor, and there seem to be different editions out there with different companies instead of Meneely. This particular edition is published by Barnes & Noble. I suspect the addition of Meneely & Co. happened when it was translated from French, but I'm still not certain.
I often wonder why I never knew about this little detail. My Grandfather, Clinton Meneely, had a degree in French Literature. He never mentioned this little item, or perhaps he'd forgotten about it. Either way, here it is.
The Meneely Bell Company has been closed for decades
and I am not an expert in the business, just a family member trying to
provide public info. If you are looking for info and history on a specific
