François and Jacques Debat's medical collection

The huge collection of objects from the histories of medicine and pharmacy, assembled by French doctors François Debat and his son Jacques Debat was donated to the French State and is now displayed in the Musée du Service de Santé des Armées at the Hôpital d'instruction des armées du Val-de-Grâce in Paris. In the showcases you can admire a lot of antique bronze mortars, apothecary jars and other medical and surgical tools.
