[Japanese Medical Student Notes]
FUJIKI

Kyoto Manuscript [1900] 4 Vol. Rare. Student's notes from courses taken in anatomy, material medica and other medical subjects at equivalent to 3rd year studies at present Imperial University, Kyoto. The text is written in Japanese characters on contemporary rice paper. Books bound with silk string ties, some wear. The text is complemented with human anatomical drawings and plants in section on medicinal plants. The books are organized according to four series of lectures: I. Medicinal plants by Prof. Katahira; II. Anatomy of brain, nerve and nerve irritation were offered by Prof. Adachi Buntarô (1865-1945); III. Anatomy of blood vessels lectures shared by Prof. Adachi and Prof. Yoshi Sugano (1854-1914) ;IV. Anatomy and histology of the five organs of sense by Prof. B. Adachi. The family name of Fujiki is written in one of the books, suggesting this name as that of student taking the courses. Kyoto Imperial University was established on June 18, 1897. It is second oldest Japanese university and one of the highest ranked universities in Asia today, being formerly one of Japan's Imperial Universities. The higher school moved to a patch of land just across the street, where the Yoshida South Campus stands today. In the same year of the university's establishment (1897), the College of Science and Technology was founded. The notes by Fujiki represent a rare example of medical training in Japan in early 20th century. This is especially significant as the classes appear to have been taken shortly after founding of the Imperial University in Kyoto. Professor Adachi Buntarô,MD was a noted Japanese anatomist and anthropologist. He took his medical training in anatomy in Germany. Upon return to Japan he taught anatomy. He also conducted anthropological research on comparative cranial structure of the Japanese race to that of European races. From his studies on the skulls from Stone Age men in Japan he was able to show that humans in Japan at that time were not related to Eskimos. Very Good Sewn Binding (Item ID: 0000559)
