Évariste Régis Huc

The Abbé Huc, C.M. Évariste Régis Huc, C.M., also known as the Abbé Huc (1813–1860), was a French Catholic priest, Lazarite missionary, and traveller. He became famous for his accounts of Qing-era China, Mongolia (then known as "Tartary"), and especially the then-almost-unknown Tibet in his book ''Remembrances of a Journey in Tartary, Tibet, and China''. He and his companion Joseph Gabet were the first Europeans who had reached Lhasa since Thomas Manning in 1812.
