In the preface to Louis Lémery’s translation of his 1702 Traité des aliments, he argues that “the Ground-work of our Preservation, consists chiefly in a Knowledge of suiting Foods to every Constitution, as it best agrees with; and so the Knowledge we ought to be most desirous of, should be that of Foods” (ix-x).

This panel welcomes papers that explore, but are by no means limited to:
