Caption: Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre (1737-1814), French writer and botanist. An engineer by profession, Bernardin's army service as an engineer on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean provided him with material for Voyage a l'Ile de France (1773), with which he opened his literary career. The work bought him to the attention of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, with whom he became friends. De Saint-Pierre is best known for his 1787 novel Paul and Virginie, a short novel about innocent love. In 1795 he was elected to the Institut de France, the predecessor of the Academie Francaise. Illustration created between 1880 and 1890.
