About This Item

Numerous woodcut illustrations in the text. [31] folding leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers (wrappers a little rubbed), orig. block printed title label on upper cover (label a little defective), new stitching. Kyoto & Tokyo: 1864. First edition and rare. Imamura (1814-90), a leading doctor and historian of Japanese medicine, was physician to the future Emperor Taisho when he was a youth. Imamura, professor of medicine at Tokyo University, found that many of the contemporary Japanese works on acupuncture had strayed from the classic teachings of the Chinese physicians. In this work, Imamura makes a series of highly detailed and organized corrections to refine the fourteen meridians. The numerous striking woodcuts depict various parts of the body and pressure points. Very nice copy. Some light dampstaining. ❧ Mestler, Old Japanese Medical Books, I, p. 297.
