About the Book

Histories of Mercury in Medicine Across Asia and Beyond presents a collection of research on the historical uses of mercury in Asian and European medicine by an international group of scholars. Drawing upon primary textual sources as well as on colonial and trade company records, the authors explores the ways in which mercury was used in the different medical traditions from the medieval periods to the present. The essays in this volume provide insight into the many connections between the various Asian medical cultures, and the role European colonial enterprises played in adding to these connections.

You have a great selection of books, and it's easy and quickly to purchase from you. Thanks.
Ketil, Norway
Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
