Victor Schoelcher
Victor Schoelcher's, widely cited, 19th century book on Toussaint Louverture. The book by Toussaint's biographer is valuable for the understanding of the period, because it contains many original documents.

Victor Schoelcher (July 22, 1804 Paris, France - December 25, 1893 Houilles, France) was a French abolitionist writer in the 19th century and the main spokesman for a group from Paris who worked for the abolition of slavery, and formed an abolition society in 1834. He worked especially hard for the abolition of slavery on the Caribbean islands, for example in Guadeloupe, where Antoine Richepanse had re-introduced slavery in 1802 and it was finally abolished in 1848.
