Bonnechose, Francois Paul Emile De

Bonnechose, Francois Paul Emile de a French historian, was born Aug. 18, 1801, at Leyerdorp, in Holland, and died Feb. 15, 1875, at Paris. For some time he served in the French army, and in 1829 he was appointed librarian of the palace at St. Cloud. In 1833 he published his Eloge de Bailly, for which he received the prize of the French Academy. In 1836 he published, in 2 vols., Christophe Sanval, ou la Societe sous la Restauration, which was but the beginning of other historical Works, that made his name known throughout France. His Histoire de France (2 vols.) went through fourteen editions during the lifetime of its author, and his Histoire d'Angleterre received the prize of the Academy. But his main work was Les Reformateurs avant la Reforme (2 vols. 1845), — which is highly praised.
