About This Book
The Dongui Bogam is a Korean book compiled by the royal physician, Heo Jun (1546-1615) and was first published in 1613 during the Joseon Dynasty of Korea. The title literally means ¡°Mirror of Eastern Medicine¡±. The book is regarded important in traditional Korean medicine and one of the classics of Oriental medicine today. As of July 2009, it is on UNESCO¡¯s Memory of the World Programme. The original edition of Dongui Bogam is currently preserved by the Korean National Library. It is expected to be translated in English by 2013. The original was written in Chinese alphabet and only part of it was transcribed in Korean for wide nursery use, as only officials understood Chinese.
