Pierre Louis Berquin-Duvallon (1769 – aft 1804))
Paris : Imprimerie Expeditive, 1803
This work on Louisiana and the western part of Florida gives a general survey of the area, with special attention paid to the Mississippi River and New Orleans. The author writes of the climate; soil; flora and fauna; production of sugar, cotton, indigo, tobacco, rice and wood ; as well as trade, commerce, law and government. Berquin-Duvallon was a planter who lived in Louisiana from 1799 until 1802. A French colonist, he fled San Domingo in 1803, after slaves successfully revolted. The Haitian Revolution resulted in the abolition of slavery on Haiti.
