New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1992. First US Edition. Hardcover. Folio. 2 volumes in Slipcase. Books measure 12” x 14”. Edited by Gyurme Dorje & Fernand Meyer. Bound in scarlet cloth. 336 total pages. Full page plates in black in white (Vol. 1) and color (Vol. 2). A very heavy set of books (12 pounds). Both volumes are fine in a near fine, pictorial slipcase.

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. The paintings are full of 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. A fantastic book production!
