Edouard de Montulé (1792-1828), French traveler and author. His skill as an artist enabled him to illustrated his own books. His Travels in America is his record of a trip that took him through New York, Philadelphia, the West Indies, New Orleans, Ohio, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Frankfort, Lexington, Chillicothe, Wheeling, Niagara Falls, Albany, then back to New York City.
"In these twenty-four letters, factual details on flora, fauna, hunting, geology, roads and modes of travel, currency, agriculture, industry, and commerce are interspersed with delightfully amusing and astute observations on the venturesome, hard-working, ingenious Americans whose enterprise and ability Montulé learned promptly to admire." - publisher.
