A Popular History of Hindu Medicine is a desideratum in English Literature: - and yet the growing spirit of age calls for a systematic arrangement of the subject. Amidst the mass of writings scattered in the pages of forgotten works on classical India, this book will, it is hoped, serve as beacons in directing the foot-steps of the rising general, and tend to inspire them with zeal to pursue their course of investigation in the realms of antiquity.
The subject dealt are Antiquity of the Hindu Medical System, Mythical Account of the antiquity of Ayurveda, Hindu medical works and their authors, Synopsis of the leading medical works (Atreya Samhita), Analysis of Charaka, Sushurta, The rank of the Hindu physicians, The duty of the physicians and his attendents, The physicians fees, Hindu physiology: Growth of the human body, The three period of a man's life, Structure of the body, Hindu materia medica, Hindu pharmacy, Hindu hygeine, Hindu surgery. The book is being published under Indian Medical Science Series.
