“One of the most famous collections of popular remedies!”

 

The ‘Remedies’ of Madame Fouquet was a popular book of medicines, healing, and healthy recipes, originally written in the late 17th-century (1685). Her situation was a unique experience for women in any scientific field during her day. Except – it wasn’t. According to Doig and Sturzer,

“Although she helped many people, she continues to this day to be given credit for something she actually never did. Marie Fouquet…was a very religious woman who expended much energy and money in organizing care for and distributing medicine to the poor. Although she is often credited with the authorship of ‘Recueil de receptes choisies, experimentees…as well as the receipies, she neither wrote the book nor developed the formulas! – (D&S, 131)

 

The most prominent of the charitable handbooks, and perhaps the most successful of its kind in early modern Europe” (Porter 103). This book describes medical work, experiments, and treatments that she herself developed – including syphilis!
