GASPE, Philip Aubert de, Canadian author, born in Quebec, 30 October, 1786; died there, 29 January 1S71. He was educated in the seminary of Quebec, studied law, and, after practicing his profession for some years, became sheriff. But he neglected his duties, and his generosity to friends involved him in difficulties. Those for whom he had sacrificed himself abandoned him in adversity, and he was imprisoned four years for debt. On his release he retired to his domain of Saint-Jean Port-Joli. His "Anciens Canadiens" (1862)was, perhaps, the most popular book ever published in Canada. An English translation, by Mrs. Pennie, was published in England. This and his " Memoires" (1866) deal with the traditions and folk-lore of Canada.
