Les médecins à la censure
chez Louis Gontier : 1677 : Paris : 12mo: ã6 A-2G8,4 2H6, 192 leaves, pp. [12] 370 [2], last page blank, typographic device on title signed 'DF', woodcut headpieces and initials. : A dialogue between Cariste, a cleric and advocate, Cleante, a gentleman, and Sosandre, a well known doctor. The lawyer and gentleman throw a series of objections to medicine at Sosandre who defends his profession. Bezançon insists this is not an apologia for medicine, the reader must see for himself if Sosandre's replies are reasonable. In the seventh conversation Bezançon quotes the preface to Tartuffe, to show that Molière's condemnation of the profession was no more than comic licence.Apparently a doctor himself, Bezançon wrote another polemic Les medecine pretendüe reformée (Paris, 1683) and a more strictly medical work Nouveau traité des fièvres (Paris, 1690). He is not noticed by Hoefer, Bayle and Thillaye, or Hirsch.Dedicated to Louise Henriette de Cominge, Comtesse de Grandpré.
