Lost an­cient med­i­cal books col­lected, pub­lished

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China has pub­lished a col­lec­tion of rare an­cient med­i­cal books that were once thought lost in China un­til they were dis­cov­ered over­seas.

The col­lec­tion, pub­lished by Zhonghua Book Com­pany, in­cor­po­rates 427 an­cient tra­di­tional Chi­nese med­i­cal books into 403 vol­umes.

At the launch event, Zheng Jin­sheng, editor-in-chief of the col­lec­tion, said that since the 1990s, he and his team had trav­eled to Ja­pan, Ger­many, France, Bri­tain and other coun­tries to col­lect the books.

China has de­vel­oped unique medicine the­o­ries and prac­tices, and a great deal of books and works have been pub­lished on the sub­ject, some of which ended up in other coun­tries while some of them have been lost.

The pub­li­ca­tion is a mile­stone in tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine lit­er­a­ture re­search and has been wel­comed by re­searchers.
