About This Item

Two full-page brush & black ink illus. of the human body, front & back, with names of pressure points. 36 folding leaves. 8vo (247 x 172), orig. wrappers (wrappers rather worn & wormed, recased), new stitching. [Japan: late Edo]. Our manuscript is arranged by section of the body from head to foot, with a listing of about 120 pressure points and their meridians, allied organs, and related illnesses. There are precise instructions on how to locate each pressure point by measurement. At the end is a list of 45 pressure points that should not be touched, followed by two full-page images of the body, front and back, with names of pressure points. These are followed by 354 pressure points, arranged into groups. Each group is connected to a specific organ. Good copy. This manuscript is rather wormed, increasingly towards the end, but completely legible.
