EYMA, Louis Xavier, French author, born in St. Pierre, Martinique, West Indies, 16 October 1816. When scarcely nineteen years old he was appointed to a place in the navy department in Paris, which he held for eleven years, and in 1846 he was sent by the government on several missions to the West Indies and the United States. After his return in 1.848 he published interesting reports about the primary instruction and the general school system of the countries that he had visited. Soon afterward he traveled for a second time through the United States, and spent several years in studying the institutions and natural features of the country. He recorded his observations in several works published after his return, of which the best known are " Les femmes du nouveau monde" (1853); "Les deux Ameriques" (1853); "Les peaux rouges" (1854); "Les peaux noires " (1856): "La R6publique Americaine; ses institutions; ses hommes" (2 vols.. 1861)" "Les trente quatre etoiles de l'union Americaine" (2 vols.. 1862); and " La Chasse a l'esclave " (1866). He also published an "Introduction a une politique g6n6rale " (1842)" and many novels.
