He was born at the castle of Las Cases near Revel in Languedoc. He was educated at the military schools of Vendôme and Paris; he entered the navy and took part in various engagements of the years 1781–1782. The outbreak of the Revolution in 1789 caused him to emigrate, and he spent some years in Germany and England, sharing in the disastrous Quiberon expedition (1795). He was one of the few survivors and returned to London, where he lived in poverty until finding his vocation as a private tutor. In 1801, in London and under the pseudonym A. Lesage, he published in English the original edition of his famous atlas, which immediately proved a great success. Returned to Paris after the Peace of Amiens (1802), and amnestied, he issued the first French edition in 1803-1804, called "Atlas historique, genealogique, chronologique et geographique de A. Lesage." Multiple editions,
