AN ESSAY



ANTIQUITY OF HINDOO MEDICINE ;

INCLUDING AN

Introductory Lecture co the Course of Materia Medica and Therapeutics, delivered at
King's-CoUege. 8vo. 6s. 6d. boards.

" This very curious volume has been already so fully noticed in the different literary
and medical journals, that we have only the agreeable duty of recommending it to the
notice of our general and medical leaders."— Edinburgh New Philosophical Journal.

'■ A work of immense research and erudition." — Medico Chirurgical Review.

" The existence, then, of a School of Medicine in Hindostan, prior to the age of
Dioscorides, or even of Hippocrates, to the extent of this portion of knowledge, (Materia
Medica,) becomes matter of demonstration. We cannot pretend to trace the variety of
proofs which Dr. Roylk produces to make out his case. For this purpose he ransacks
the history of Medicine, as it existed among the Persians, Arabs, and Greeks ; all of
whom he shews to have obtained much from the Hindoos, whose science, therefore,
must have been anterior to theirs. He brings, likewise, a number of facts, derived
from Hindoo literature, to shew not only the culture of Medicine, but of Philosophy,
the fine and useful arts, and Mathematics, at a very remote period. He further enters
into the details of early commerce, and brings together numerous proofs that the Egyp-
tians., Phcenicians, Jews, and Arabs, had constant communications with India. To detail
thts«, would be to quota the entire yo\\xvcLe."—Athena\m.
