INERT, Paul Edmond (e'-zert), Danish traveller, born in Copenhagen in 1757; died in Guinea, Africa, in 1789. He went to Africa in 1783 in the capacity of chief surgeon, resided for three years at Fort Christiansborg, on the Guinea coast, and after exploring the country of the Ashantees embarked on a slaver bound for the Antilles. During the voyage a part of the negroes revolted, and he was dangerously wounded. He landed at Santa Cruz, visited successively St. Eustache, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Porto Rico, and Cuba, and sailed for Europe in 1788. He was afterward sent to Africa by the Danish government to found a colony on an island in the river Volta. He published "Reise nach Guinea und den Caraibischen Inseln" (Copenhagen, 1788; reprinted at Berlin and Leipsic, 1790; and translated into Danish, Swedish, Dutch, Spanish, and French, Paris, 1793).
