Overview for Materia Medica of the Hindus: With a Glossary of Indian Plants by George King

This work is not a literal translation of any particular treatise, but a compilation from standard Sanskrit Medical works, arranged somewhat upon the plan of Waring’s Manual of Therapeutics, and intended to give a concise exposition of the Materia Medica of the Hindus.  Dr. Wise, in his commentary on the Hindu system of Medicine, has given a pretty full and accurate account of the Anatomy, Surgery and Pathology of the Hindus.  With regard to his work I may here repeat, what I have stated in the preface to my translation of the Nidana, "That the natives of India cannot be too grateful to him for the trouble he has taken in bringing to light the contents of their ancient medical works, and establishing their right position in the history of medicine."  The scope and plan of his book did not, however, admit of his treating of Sanskrit Materia Medica in the manner of modern works on the subject.  I have, therefore, undertaken to publish this work under the impression that it will prove an acceptable contribution to the history of drugs, and will form a basis for further researches on indigenous medicines.
