Summary: Albert-Antoine Cimochowski, called Albert Cim, (22 October 1845 – 8 May 1924) was a French novelist, literary critic and bibliographer. Born to a French mother and a Polish officer who fled to France after the 1830 November Uprising, Albert Cimochowski entered in Paris a public service career for the Postes et télégraphes in 1861 and, under the name Albert Cim, began in journalism by writing articles on philology, criticism and bibliography, pieces that were quickly noticed. He collaborated with many newspapers including "lights" ones (La Gaudriole) and held the Revue littéraire column of Le Radical from 1881 to 1894, then of the National from 1895 to 1897. Meanwhile, he published books for children and novels, which earned him to be five-time winner of the Académie française, and documentary, literary and bibliographic studies. In 1896, he was appointed a librarian by the Under Secretary for Postes and telegraphs. He was also a member of the Société des gens de lettres of which he was twice the vice-president.
