Ernest-Aimé published "Les Nationales", a volume of poetry in 1844. Soon afterwards he married a daughter of the economist Louis Auguste Blanqui. He went into business as also turned his attention to archaeology. But he returned to literature and in 1858 his novel "Fanny" was such a success that it was reprinted sixteen times in ten months. In 1859 he published "Daniel". Further novels followed but they didn't match the success of "Fanny". He was also the author of several plays and of "Histoire générale des usages funèbres et des sépultures des peuples anciens" (1857-1861, 3 volumes). The playwright Georges Feydeau was his son.
