Author Philippe Aubert de Gaspé is remembered primarily for his novel Les Anciens Canadiens. First published in 1862, the work describes life in French Canada in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Born in 1786 of a noble family, Philippe Aubert de Gaspé became a lawyer and involved himself in Quebec City's public and financial life. However, poor management of his personal affairs led to his financial ruin in 1822 and to his subsequent imprisonment. Afterwards, weary of public life, he withdrew to his family estate at Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, where he lived for many years writing his novel and memoirs. The stamp, designed by Yves Paquin, depicts the author and "The Debacle", a scene from his novel. The typography is by Pierre Fontaine.
