Extremely rare original edition of a highly influential Japanese medical text book, the Ihan Teiko, (General outline of medical precepts). The work has been of great service in diffusing Western medical knowledge. The atlas is the first engraved anatomical atlas ever published in Japan. Serious wormholes in the margins of the last half of the atlas volume. Good set of the rare first edition.
