Herbal medicine and natural history

Herbal medicine and natural history(en) , 本草学と博物誌(ja)
The biggest advance in Japan’s herbal medicine (Chinese herbology, study of materia medica used in Chinese medicine) was made in the Edo period, age of long-lasted peace and flourishing academic progress. 『Compendium of Materia Medica』, authored by Li Shizhen during the Ming dynasty and introduced to Japan in the early Edo period won its place as the essential academic text, and had been continuously published. Study of local productions also advanced, which led to the publication of nature history texts in a wide range of areas from traditional materia medica to animals, plants, and minerals.(en)
