A Dictionary of Malayan Medicine

 

-------

John D Gimlette & HW Thomson

Gimlette, one of the pioneers of Western medicine in the Malayan Peninsula, never lived to see this book published. It was completed by Thomson, his colleague and friend, from notes prepared for the book. One of the many charcateristics that distinguished the author from his fellow practitioners was that he had and open heart and an open and enquiring mind. So while he was tending to the needs amongst his patients in remote parts of the country, he also wanted to find out what form of medicine had sustained the Malays and Orang Asli (indigenous people). The book, in dictionary form, provides us with the fascinating results of his research.
