Pierre-Claude-Victor Boiste, born in Paris in 1765 and died in Ivry-sur-Seine on 24 April 1824, was a French lexicographer and poet.

A lawyer by training and then a printer, he was the author of a dictionary of universal geography and several dictionaries of French language and literature, the best known of which is the Dictionnaire universel de la langue française.

Published in 1800 and revised, expanded and reissued fifteen times, notably by Charles Nodier, until 1866, Boiste’s Dictionnaire universel was quite successful before being supplanted by Emile Littré’s and Pierre Larousse’s dictionaries.
