Alexandre Privat d’Anglemont (1815–1859)

Privat d’Anglemont, Alexandre (prē-vä’ dägl-mô‘). A French man of letters; born at Sainte-Rose, Guadeloupe, 1815; died at Paris, 1859. He first became known through a small volume, ‘The Prado’ (1846); but all his days he led the life of a bohemian, and finally died in a hospital. He published ‘Anecdotes of Paris’ (1854); and one of his friends has collected and published Privat’s fugitive efforts under the title ‘Unknown Paris’ (1861).
