Malay Poisons and Charm Cures
John D Gimlette
This is a reprint of the 1929 revised and enlarged edition of Gimlette's classic work, which was based on his 18 years' experience as a doctor in the Malay States. Despite the possibly negative connotations of the title, the book was written for the benefit of the medical profession as an encouragement to carry out research into the efficacy, if any, of the potions and practices of traditional bomoh/pawang, medicine men. Very Good Paperback. Reprint Originally published in 1915 301 pages with appendices on charms used, poisonous plants and Kelantan poisons and an index.
