PICHARD0 y TAPIA, Esteban (pee-char'-do), Cuban author, born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Santo Domingo, in December, 1799; died in Havana, Cuba, in 1879. His parents emigrated in 1801 to Puerto Principe, Cuba. The son studied there and at Havana, and was admitted to the bar in 1821. In the following year he published in Puerto Principe "MiscelAnea PoStica," but he soon abandoned poetry, and in 1824 published at Havana, where he had fixed his residence, his "Notas crono-1egicas sobre Cuba." He made in 1825 and following years a tour through the European continent and the United States, and on his return published his "Itinerario general de la Isla de Cuba" (Havana, 1830). The first edition of his "Diccionario provincial de voces Cubanas" was published in 1836, and it has passed through several editions and been revised and considerably enlarged. His "Geografia General de la Isla de Cuba," the best and most complete book on the subject, was published in 1854. His other works include a novel, "E1 Fatalista" (1865) ; "Caminos de la Isla" (3 vols., 1865); and " Gran Carta geo-topografica de Cuba," on which he spent M)out forty years traversing the island in all directions (1874). A "Memoria Justificativa" accompanies this great chart.
