History of Chinese medicine.

Tientsin, China: Tientsin Press, 1932.

The writers spent 15 years in the compilation of this work, the first important contribution to the history of Chinese medicine for Western readers. Beginning with demonology, plant lore and folk medicine, the writers deal with the subject from the earliest times to the present. They tell of the high standards attained by the Chinese in the 8th century b.c., of the effect of Confucianism upon the development of surgery, of the “doctrine of the pulse”, of Chinese pharmacy and acupuncture, and of the establishment of Western medicine in present day China. Second edition, Shanghai, National Quarantine Service, 1936, reprinted, New York, AMS Press, 1973.
