CHEVALIER, ULYSSE French bibliog rapher, was born at Rambouillet on Feb. 24, 1841. He published a great number of documents relating to the history of Dauphine, e.g., the cartularies of the church and the town of Die (1868), of the abbey of St. Andre-le-Bas at Vienne (1869), of the abbey of Notre Dame at Bonnevaux in the diocese of Vienne (1889), of the abbey of St. Chaffre at Le Monestier (1884), the in ventories and several collections of archives of the dauphins of Viennais, and a Bibliotheque liturgique in six volumes the third and fourth volumes of which constitute the Repertorium hymnologicum, containing more than 20,000 articles. But his principal work is the Repertoire des sources historiques du moyen age.
The first part of the Repertoire Bio-bibliographie (1877-86; 2nd ed., 1905), contains the names of all the historical personages alive between the years 1 and 15oo who are mentioned in printed books, together with the precise indication of all the places where they are mentioned. The second part, Topo-bibliographie I903), contains not only the names of places mentioned in books on the history of the middle ages, but, in a general way, everything not included in the Bio-bibliographie. The Repertoire is one of the most important bibliographical monuments ever devoted to the study of mediaeval history.
