Jean Alexandre Buchon

Jean Alexandre Buchon (1791-1849) was a French scholar and historian. Born into the French Revolution, Buchon was dedicated to recovering France’s history to help the country heal and regain its international status. He gathered French stories and published them as part of his Collection des chroniques nationales franciases… (4 vols, 1824-1829). In geography, his most important contribution was the publication of the French edition of Carey & Lea’s American Atlas in 1825. Each page of the atlas included highly detailed text about the state or territory depicted and a map of the area.
