Charles-Yves Cousin, also known as Charles Yves Cousin d'Avallon, was born in Avallon ( Yonne ) in 1769 and died in Paris in 1840. He was a French writer, best known for his collections of stories about historical figures and literature. He was a prolific writer who was caught up the intrigues of the French Revolution and died in abject poverty. This book contains one of the first known portraits of Toussaint Louverture, although like all portraits of Toussaint it was apocryphal. No likenesses were known to have been done of the man during his lifetime.
