Delolme, Jean Louis, was born at Geneva in 1740, and educated for the bar, but a political pamphlet caused his early expulsion from the Swiss Republic, and he wandered about Europe in great poverty. He settled down as a journalist in England, where he produced (1771) his well-known treatise on The Constitution of England, a performance highly creditable for a foreigner, and esteemed by weighty authorities at the time of its publication, but now almost forgotten. His minor works were unimportant. He returned to his native country shortly before his death in 1806.
