The author was educated at the École Polytechnique in Paris, and obtained his M.D. in 1804 after having served in the armies of Napoleon as Medical Assistant. He is said to have practised in Galway, and certainly had some knowledge of English. He later settled in his native town of Saulieu (Côte d'Or) where he became Chief Physician, and was in charge of the hospital. He wrote many articles for medical journals as exemplified in this collection. A Recueil des oeuvres posthumes was published in Paris in 1828.
