Explorations in Daoism : medicine and alchemy in literature by Peng Yoke Ho( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explorations in Daoism brings together an extraordinary compendium of data on alchemical knowledge in China, describing the methods used for dating important alchemical texts in the Daoist Canon, and reconstructing and translating a number of alchemical texts that exist only in fragments scattered throughout the Canon, as well as in pharmacopoeia and other compendia. Such techniques, explained here for the first time, formed a vital part of the groundwork that went into writing the alchemical sections of Joseph Needham's Science and Civilisation in China series."--Jacket
