Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language. The name derives from Doktoro Esperanto, the pseudonym under which L. L. Zamenhof first published the Unua Libro in 1887. The word itself means 'one who hopes'. Zamenhof's goal was to create an easy and flexible language as a universal second language to foster peace and international understanding.
Baignol & Farjon, based in France, was incorporated in 1875 by Camille Baignol (1841-1908) and Ferdinand Farjon (1841-1916). The company manufactured metal feathers, pencils, and pens for 104 years until it ceased operations in 1979.
