Portrait of Auguste   Pavie

At first a French enlisted infantryman, then civil servant and diplomat, Auguste Pavie (1847-1925) extensively explored the lands of Cambodia, Lao and Siam.

His interest in local cultures and traditions brought him to collect folktales, manuscripts and notations on the mores of local people, material for eleven books published between 1898 and 1919 under the generic title Mission Pavie Indo-ChineĀ 1879-1893.
