About This Item

45 woodcut illus. in the text. 29 folding leaves. Three vols. in one. Large 8vo, orig. wrappers (rather rubbed, some light dampstaining), remains of block-printed title label on upper cover, modern stitching. [Kyoto]: Osumi Seibei, [Foreword dated 1311, colophon dated 1675]. The third edition - preceded by an undated early 17th-century undated edition and a 1659 edition - of this collection of dissertations on moxibustion and acupuncture. It concerns moxibustion treatment for adults and children with 36 pictures of adults and nine of children, illustrating the locations of acupuncture points with explanations of efficacies. This edition is notable for presenting an entirely new set of woodcuts, smaller in size. This work is a commentary and explanation of the Ling-shu, which "formed [along with the Su Wen] the theoretical basis of classical Chinese medicine...the Ling-shu...discusses mainly therapy - mostly centered on medicinal prescriptions, but also including physical therapies such as bonesetting and breathing exercises, and stimulation treatments such as acupuncture, moxibustion and massage."-Sugimoto & Swain, Science & Culture in Traditional Japan, p. 85. Very good copy; WorldCat lists only one copy, at NLM.
