Preface

A popular History of Hindu Medicine is a desideratum in English Literature and yet the growing spirit of the age calls for a systematic arrangement of the subject. This miniature History of Hindu Ayur- Veda' is the growth of the times. Amidst the mass of writings scattered in the pages of forgotten works on classical Hind, this little book will, it is hoped, serve as beacons in directing the foot-steps of the rising generation, and tend to inspire them with zeal to pursue their course of investigation in the realms of antiquity, and stimulate them to fulfill the heritage of the intellectual glory of their sires worthy of the tradition of their race.

It now remains to add that the materials of this sketch were mostly gleaned from the monumental work of Dr. Thomas A. Wise, to the genius of whose pen the world is indebted for a comprehensive Review of the History of Medicine.
