Notes

Son of a stationer, Louvet worked as a bookseller's clerk for Louis-François Prault, before gaining acclaim with the publication of his popular novel, 'Les Amours du chevalier de Faublas' and its sequels (1787, 1788 & 1790). In May 1792, he became editor of the Girondin-subsidized journal 'La Sentinelle' and also wrote for the 'Journal des débats'. After escaping the proscription of the Girondins, he was allowed to resume his seat in the Convention on 8 March 1795 and set up a publishing enterprise with his wife. His widow continued to publish for a few months after his death in 1797, before retiring to Chancy.
