Great Encyclopedia of Medicine “Uibangryuchi”

 
The Korean people have developed medical art and medicine from old times and handed down medical heritage.
 “Uibangryuchi” was compiled on a nationwide scale as ordered by Sejong, the fourth king of the feudal Joson dynasty. The compilation involved well-known scholars of medicine in those days.
The compilation of “Uibangryuchi” came to a close in the year 1445. Metal type was used to print it in the year 1477 via thorough emendations.
This book came into being nearly four centuries before “Dictionary of Medicine and Surgery”(7 volumes in all) which  was published in Europe from the year 1805 to the year 1807 as the encyclopedia of medicine, the first of its kind. It is the first great encyclopedia of medicine, very large in scale and scientific.
It deals with good methods of medical treatment, prescription, folk remedies, dietary cure, application of acupuncture and moxibustion, massage treatment and other methods of treatment and prevention created by Koreans and scholars of medicine in the East for centuries.
