About the Author

Pierre Jean-Baptiste Legrand d'Aussy (1737- 1800) was a Jesuit who became a medieval and cultural historian and may be considered one of the first great food historians. His work on French food, title ""History of the private life of the French from the origin of the nation until our days" remains one of the major sources for French food history. He also did an important study of French 12th and 13th century fables.
Le Grand became the curator of French manuscripts at the French national library and labored on a complete history of French poetry, interrupted by his sudden death.
