About This Item

Two parts in one vol. 25, 13 folding leaves. 8vo (198 x 135 mm.), orig. wrappers (rubbed), old stitching. [Japan]: at the beginning of each part & on final leaf (in trans.): "Oyo [today, Nagoya] retired doctor Tokei [or] Tokoku Yoshida copied 6 June 1767." The first part provides a detailed explanation of the theory and practice of acupuncture, concentrating on 28 different ways to use the needle. At the end of this part, there is a most interesting discussion of Zi Wu Liu zhu [The Midnight-Noon Ebb-Flow Acupuncture Method], which is used as a theoretical guide to determine whether the meridian is open at a particular moment. The second part contains descriptions of 36 common illnesses (sexually transmitted diseases, paralysis, headache, heart disease, contagious diseases, ulcers, various pains, fevers, children's diseases, gynecological illnesses, insanity, etc.), their symptoms, appropriate pressure points for treatment, and application of the needle (shallow or deep, etc.). Fine copy, written in a clear hand.
