A Classic of Traditional Chinese Medicine: Synopsis of Prescriptions of the Golden Chamber with 300 Cases
Written by Zhang Zhongjing
Compiled and translated by Luo Xiwen, Ph.D.
English
Hardcover, 561 pages
ISBN 7800052915

Treatise on Febrile Diseases Caused by Cold (Shanghan Lun) and Synopsis of Prescriptions of the Golden Chamber (Jinkui Yaolue Fanglun) are the two most important classics of traditional Chinese medicine, written some 1,700 years ago by Zhang Zhongjing, the great sage of traditional Chinese medicine. These two books are still used by students as textbooks in all colleges of traditional Chinese medicine, as well as being used by medical practitioners and scholars in the field as reference books.

Synopsis of Prescriptions of the Golden Chamber with 300 Cases is a completely revised edition of the previous Synopsis of Prescriptions of the Golden Chamber. As well as some revisions and improvements to the original translation, Professor Luo has also added illustrative case studies to the text. As some of the prescriptions also appear in the Treatise on Febrile Diseases Caused by Cold with 500 Cases, the number of cases selected from thousands of the most representative ones by noted practitioners both in modern and ancient times was limited to 300. These selected cases are of great help to readers in understanding this ancient classic, a book still highly valued by all those who use its knowledge to relieve the pains of the general populace.

"Synopsis of Prescriptions of the Golden Chamber with 300 Cases is a logical development of the original idea conceived when I began to write Treatise on Febrile Diseases Caused by Cold with 500 Cases. Originally, I planned to collect another 500 cases demonstrating Jinkui Yaolue, but in the end 300 cases were selected, because about one third of the prescriptions in Jinkui Yaolue also appears in Shanghan Lun. I refer readers to the comparison volume Treatise on Febrile Diseases Caused by Cold with 500 Cases for further information."
-- Preface, Dr. Luo Xiwen
