Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Henri Mouhot (May 15, 1826 - November 10, 1861) was a French naturalist and explorer of the mid-19th century. He was born in Montb liard, Doubs, France - near the Swiss border, but spent his childhood in Russia and possibly, parts of Asia. He died near Naphan, Laos. He is remembered mostly in connection to Angkor. As a young professor of philology Mouhot spent at least 10 years of his life working as a language tutor in Russia. He traveled throughout Europe with his brother Charles, studying photographic techniques developed by Louis Daguerre. In 1856, he began devoting himself to the study of Natural Science. In 1856 he married a descendant, likely the grand-daughter, of Scottish explorer Mungo Park.show more
