In this extra large format set are a series of 79 full-page paintings (tangkas), which were originally commissioned to illustrate the comprehensive medical treatise called The Blue Beryl. Created between 1687 and 1703, these paintings are vibrant pieces of educational art that interweave practical medical knowledge with Buddhist traditions and Tibetan lore—depicting such things as the use of omens and dreams for making diagnoses, hundreds of medicinal herbs and medical instruments, detailed diagrams of human anatomy, and much more. Volume one contains the full page paintings in black and white, with complete translation of the Blue Beryl text. Volume two includes the 79 paintings in full and vibrant color, with descriptive text of each plate. A fantastic book production!
