Morand gave Etienne-Francois Geoffroy ‘le catalogue des oyseux et des plantes’. Geoffroy was pleased, giving Morand the confidence to offer a copy to Sloane. Sauveur-Francois Morand (1697-1773) was a French surgeon and son of John Morand, surgeon at the Hotel des Invalides. Morand was admitted as a surgeon at the Hotel des Invalides in 1724 at the age of 15. He became a Fellow of the Academie des sciences in 1722, Chief Surgeon of the Hospital of Charity in 1730, and Chief Surgeon of the French Guards in 1739. Morand published several texts on anatomy and surgery (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sauveur-Francois_Morand).
