Gabriel LeClerc in the year 1692 wrote a compend entitled "La Chirurgie Complete" which, according to Garrison went through eighteen editions. The fourth edition was translated into English in 1707, and we will quote part of the title-page of this because of its pleasing quaintness of diction: "The Compleat Surgeon: or the Whole Art of Surgery explain'd in a most familiar method.

Of the bones, muscles, tumours, ulcers, and wounds, simple and complicated, or those by gun-shot; As also of Venereal Diseases, the Scurvy, Fractures, Luxations, and all sorts
