REMY, Jules (ray-me), French traveller, born in Livry, near Chalons-sur-Marne, France, 2 September, 1826. After temporarily occupying the chair of natural history at the College Rollin from 1848 till 1850, he set out in 1851 on a long journey, during which he visited the Canary islands, Brazil, Chili, Bolivia, Peru, and also the Marquesas and Society islands, tie devoted three years to the Sandwich islands, where he came near dying from the effects of poison that was administered by a native fanatic. He succeeded in collecting much material bearing on their history, language, botany, and ethnography. King Kamehameha III. became greatly interested in M Romy and made fruitless efforts to induce him to remain permanently at Honolulu as a member of the government. After leaving Oceania, he sailed for California, every part of which he explored in company with an English traveller named Brenchley. After spending three months at Salt Lake City, M. Romy returned to San Francisco. He then traversed Mexico, New Grenada, and the plateau of the equatorial Andes as far as Quito. After ascending Piehineha and Chimborazo, he again visited Peru, Bolivia, and Chili, and embarked at Panama for the United States, where he travelled extensively. He then returned to France, and busied himself in arranging and publishing the mass of information he had collected. In 1863 he visited central Asia and parts of Thibet and the Himalayas. He has since resided at Livry. Among other works he has published "Analecta Boliviana, seu genera et species plantarum in Bolivia crescentium" (2 vols., Paris, 1846-'7) ; "Monografia de las eompuestas de Chile" (Paris, 1849, with atlas)" "Ascension du Piehineha" (Chalons-snr-Marne, 1858)" "Rdeits d'un vieux sauvage pour servir l'histoire ancienne de Hawaii" (1859)" "Voyageall pays dies Mormons" (2 vols., Paris, 1860" English translation, 1860)" "(In the Religious Movement in the United States" (London, 1861)" Ka Moolelo Hawaii" Histoire de larchipel havaiien," text and translation, with an " Introduction on the Physical, Moral, and Political Condition of the Country" (Paris, 1862)" and " Pdlerinage d'un curi-eux au monastdre bouddhique de Pemmiantsi" (Chglons, 1880).
