Daniel de La Feuille (1640 - 1709) was born a Huguenot in Sedan, France. As a young man, he was the apprentice of a watchmaker. In 1683, the Huguenots faced religious prosecution, causing the de La Feuille family to flee to Amsterdam. By 1686, Daniel de La Feuille was a citizen and established himself as an engraver, publisher, and art dealer. In 1691, he was admitted into the Booksellers Guild.
