Guy Toussaint Julien Carron (1760-1821) born in Rennes. Educator, writer and philanthropist who founded a number of social and educational institutions: schools, libraries and pharmacies while in exile in England. Deported to Jersey (1792-1796), on the Bourbon Restoration in 1814, Carron returned to France and became head of the Institut de Marie - Thérèse.

An interesting example of regional hagiography in Juvenile Literature.

Extremely rare: one copy held in Bibliotheque Municipale Lyon is the only copy recorded worldwide.
