Two Manuscript Books - Nosonomy and Gynaecology handwritten by a Japanese doctor
Two interesting, handwritten manuscripts found together though in different hands. The first being a beautifully written list of names of diseases in English and their Japanese equivalents. The name Yamaguchi Yutaka is written inside the front cover. Presumably he is the one who wrote the dictionary. The other book is a neatly written book on gynaecology titled, 'Fujin Byoron' ['Female Diseases']. Text all in Japanese except for single words in German/English at the beginning of a topic.
Both c1900. Dictionary - 180pp. 16.3 x 20.1cm. Gynaecology - 210pp. 19.5 x 13.7cm.
The dictionary is very good internally. The covers are worn and the rear cover is quite worn and has some loss at corners along with chipping and and old tape repair.
The gynaecology book is very good. Minor wear to covers only. m32030510511
