This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Montreal, Canada on July 23, 1832. Bosqui came to San Francisco with the Gold Rush in 1850 and found employment with a banking firm. In 1863 he established the Bosqui Engraving & Printing Company which produced lithography and bookbinding. A friend of many of the local artists, Bosqui was one of the organizers of the San Francisco Art Ass'n (1871) and the Bohemian Club (1872). His Marin County home burned in 1897 taking with it his large collection of paintings by local artists as well as his own, and in 1906 fire destroyed his printing firm. He was inactive in business until his death on Dec. 8, 1917 at his home in San Francisco at 2010 Lyon Street. In: Society of Calif. Pioneers.
