About This Item

Nine folding leaves. 8vo (207 x 145 mm.), orig. wrappers (a little worn & frayed), new stitching. [Japan]: from the first & final page in trans.: "Information provided by Asaemon Shimizu near Imabari Castle [in today's Ehime Prefecture]...on an auspicious day in September 1796." This rather slight manuscript is of considerable interest, as it lists 35 medical conditions, along with names of pressure points and methods of treatment. These illnesses include heart disease, skin problems, tumors, dental matters, throat and lung diseases, intestinal problems, reproductive issues, communicable diseases like cholera and gonorrhea, obstetrical problems, and diseases of children. There is an interesting section on the resuscitation of drowned people. In this work, the anonymous author gives instructions to insert needles in veins. Very good copy. Minor worming and staining.
