By colonizing Canada, France is transplanting men, institutions, practices and knowledge there.
Judged severely with regard to the canons of the twentieth century, this medicine from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, joyfully handling lancets and syringes, purgatives and emesis, still has positive aspects. The author describes the characteristics of this medicine for us by focusing first on the main actors: Patients, providers of medical care and hospitals. Then, he instructs the means of action and the tools used: remedies,surgical operations, recourse to religious or other practices, medical books, surgical instruments, equipment to prepare the various remedies.
