Traditional Tibb in India. Hakim Mohammad Azam Khan (1813-1902) was an important figure in the preservation of traditional medical practices in 19th-century India, descended from a long line of great sages of Khorasan. He published a number of important works on traditional medicine and pharmacology including Exir Azam (a comprehensive medical encyclopaedia), Romouz Azam (a general book on medicine), Qarabadin Azam (Pharmacopeia). The present volume is a lesser known work of his, being a commentary on Unani medicine (traditional medicine practised by muslims in Central Asia, founded on the practices of the ancient Greek 'Younani' physicians Hippocrates and Galen). No other records traced in institutions.

Single volume, lithographed on paper, in Farsi and Urdu, 88pp., complete, 350 x 210 mm; lithographed in single column, decorated title, head-piece opening the text, index at the end of the volume, a few small chips to outer edges, a few small marks and stains, leaves evenly age-toned; in modern rexine-backed boards, new endpapers added, spine gilt.
