Health & Beauty From the Rainforest:
Malaysian Traditions of Ramuan
Gerard Bodeker & Others (eds)
Until the 19th century what is now Malaysia's sparse population was confined to a few settlements surrounded by tropical rainforest. It is not surprising therefore that the country's inhabitants relied heavily on forest produce for not only food, but for medicinal treatment. This lavishly illustrated book is a guide to the forest based remedies developed by both the original inhabitants and the subsequent immigrants, Malay, Chinese and Indians. Near Fine Hardback in a Near Fine Dust Jacket. First Edition. 256 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
