La médecine en France, hommes et doctrines depuis l'antiquité jusqu'à nos jours; avec introduction, notes et supplément par A[uguste] Le Pileur. Ouvrage publié sur la dernière édition de l'Histoire des français des divers états, couronnée deux fois par l'Académie française.

Paris: Bibliothéque Nouvelle, 1874.

One of the pioneer histories of medicine in France. "He [Monteil] boasted of having been the first to write really 'national' history, and he wished further to show this in a memoir entitled L'Influence de l'histoire des divers etats, ou comment fill allée la France si elle est eu cette histoire. (1840; reprinted in 1841 under the title: Les Français pour la premiere fois dans l'histoire de France, ou poetique de l'histoire des divers etats).[1]  Monteil did not invent the history of civilization, but he was one of the first in France, and perhaps in Europe, to point out its extreme importance. He revised the third edition of his history himself (5 vols, 1848); a fourth appeared after his death with a preface by Jules Janin (5 vols, 1853)" (Wikipedia).
