Joseph de Maimieux (1753-1820)

Joseph de Maimieux (1753–1820), was a French noble emigrated to Germany at the time of the Revolution, who returned to France in 1797. He invented a sorte de système de langage universel ("kind of universal language system") which he exposed in Pasigraphie ou Premiers éléments du nouvel art-science, d’écrire et d’imprimer en une langue, de manière à être lu et entendu dans toute autre langue sans traduction… (Paris, 1797), completed by Pasigraphie et pasilalie, (Paris, an VIII) and Carte générale pasigraphique (1808).

According to Hoefer in his Nouvelle Biographie Générale, he may have helped general Firmas-Périés to write his Pasitélégraphie. Joseph de Maimieux was a member of the Société des observateurs de l'homme.
