The Ben Cao Gang Mu: Chinese Edition by Shizhen Li

This is the original Chinese edition of the Ben cao gang mu. Compiled in the second half of the sixteenth century by a team led by the physician Li Shizhen (1518??"1593) on the basis of previously published books and contemporary knowledge, the Ben cao gang mu is considered the largest encyclopedia of natural history in a long tradition of Chinese materia medica works. Its description of almost 1,900 pharmaceutically used natural and man-made substances marks the apex of the development of premodern Chinese pharmaceutical knowledge.
