This information is not correct.

Baptiste Paul grimaud went to Paris at the beginning of the years 1840, he was then 23 years old.
He creates Grimaud & Cie on the 12 June 1851 after he bought Arnould in 1848.

Informations from L'As de Trèfle - Numéro hors série - 10/98 - page 5 and from the history section of France Cartes: http://www.france-cartes.fr/
