Wording in this book is succinct. Each unit is very brief and concise whilst being informative. For herbs that have multiple names, the local and common name is employed as its heading, under which other names, property and flavor, effects, major functions and ways of usage are listed. According to the preface, the author wrote another book Huzhen Meteria Medica(which was lost), in which he made detailed description on the morphological characteristics of herb medicines, which is not listed particularly in this book. The morphological characteristics of major herb medicine or similar herb medicine which may cause confusions are described in this book. Modern theories on medicine and botany were brought into China during the authorĂ¢–™s time, thus his descriptions about the morphology of herbs also borrowed relevant knowledge in these two fields.

PLEASE NOTE: The full text of this publication is in Chinese.
