Henri Duveyrier was a French explorer at the time of the French colonial expansion. He was one of the first Westerners to live among the Tuaregs Ajjer in 1861 and studied all ethnic, human and geographical aspects.
" This monograph, the first devoted to the Touaregs, remained a reference and Henri Duveyrier was long regarded as an expert in Saharan issues.”
