A French priest, missionary, and author; born at Toulouse, Aug. 1, 1813; died in Paris, March 26, 1860. Ordained a priest in 1839, he went the same year to China as a missionary, traveling through the heart of the empire to Mongolia and Thibet, where he penetrated even to Lhassa. His experiences are recounted in "Souvenirs of a Journey to Tartary, Thibet, and China" (1852); "The Chinese Empire" (1854); "Christianity in China, Tartary, etc" (1858), all of which were translated into English.
