The article briefly presents the activities of French doctor Jean-Emmanuel Gilbert in Lithuania. As a scientific source, for the first time in the Lithuanian language his description of the livelihood and activities of Lithuanian peasants has been published. The French doctor Jean-Emmanuel Gilbert added much to the development of the sciences of medicines and botany in the 18th c. He was responsible for the botanical garden in Grodno and, later, for Vilnius Botanical Gardens. In researching the country’s flora, the French scientist had the opportunity to become acquainted with Lithuanian peasants. Having returned to France, in 1784 in Lyon he gave a public speech where he shared his experiences in Lithuania and described the living conditions, farming, crafts and food of the Lithuanian peasants.
