As an etcher, drawer and writer, Grasset de Saint-Sauveur was a prolific polygraph in keeping with the encyclopedic spirit of the eighteenth century: he wrote exotic novels as well as documentary works on various subjects. Called by one of his biographers a drawer without genius but a good example of the taste of his time, Grasset de Saint-Sauveur was literally bewitched by costumes.
Born in Montreal in April 1757 - at the beginning of the Seven Years' War - Jacques Grasset de Saint-Sauveur went to live in France after the conquest of New France by the British. He studied at Sainte-Barbe College in Paris and then embarked on a diplomatic career. After serving as French vice-consul in Hungary for several years, he was promoted to consul in Cairo. He died in Paris in May 1810.
