Victor Jacquemont was born at Paris in 1801. After being invited by the Jardin des Plantes to collect plant and animal specimens from a country of his choice, Jacquemont traveled to India in 1828, and remained there for the rest of his life. His father, a man held in the highest estimation, is a philosopher of the Tracy school, and a writer of no ordinary power on those psychological speculations to which a long intercourse of friendship with Destutt de Tracy had probably directed his mind. He has two sons besides Victor: the elder in the army, the younger a merchant at Hayti. Victor Jacquemont's wrote Letters to his family and friends, during his travels in India.
