• Formulas from the Golden Cabinet with Songs Vol. I-III

The Formulas of the Golden Cabinet with Songs is a nineteenth century commentary by Chen Xiuyuan on the Jin Gui Yao Lüe (Essentials from the Golden Cabinet), the famous Han dynasty formulary and companion volume to the Shang Han Lun (Treatise on Cold Damage) by Zhang Zhongjing. Translated by Sabine Wilms to the highest academic standards and yet eminently readable and intended for clinical application, the present volume discusses the first 100 formulas contained in the Han source text. To explain the internal logic of the formulas, interaction of medicinals, and precise clinical indications, the author quotes a selection of commentators and physicians throughout the ages while also stating his own understanding. Beginning with a full translation of the Jin Gui source text, each entry appears as its own vignette that includes indications and associated symptoms, formula ingredients (converted into modern measurements), instructions for preparation, and commentary. The present edition is bilingual in Chinese and English. To increase clinical applicability, we have also included brief modern monographs for each formula in the appendix. An extensive 324-page book, this is a must-have for all Jingui lovers out there.
