Venerating the Root - Part 1

This book, the first official publication of Happy Goat Productions, is a literal translation of the first half of Volume 5 from the Bei Ji Qian Jin Yao Fang 備急千金要方 on pediatrics, composed by Sun Simiao 孫思邈 in the seventh century. It contains a critical edition of the Chinese text with the literal English translation on opposing pages, in four sections titled  "Preface," "Emergence of the Newborn from the Abdomen," "Fright Seizures," and "Intrusive Upset."

The book also includes extensive translator's notes, clinical commentary by Dr. Brenda Hood, and a translation of the historical commentary on all major formulas from the Qian Jin Fang Yan Yi 千金方衍義 ("Expanded Meaning of the Thousand-Gold-Formulary"), composed in 1698 by Zhang Lu 張璐. 

For more information on classical Chinese pediatrics and a summary of the Preface, see the page on "Nurturing the Small" on this website here. For more information on the book and to purchase a copy, click here.
