Pierre Larousse: Cimetière du Montparnasse #7

The grave of Pierre Larousse (1817–75), lexicographer and encyclopedist well known for the dictionaries bearing his name, such as Le Petit Larousse. He was born in the tiny town of Toucy, in the Yonne, Burgundy, where a statue of him stands in the town centre.

My first – and very long – post on the Cimetière du Montparnasse:
