medical-astrological manuscript

ink and paint on paper
Mongolia, around 1900 AD.
each leave: 35 x 11 cm.

This book is not, like most books in Tibet, loose-leaved, but bound.
Very interesting, rare and complete manuscript on Russian paper (blind stamps of Russian paper-factory), complete with 87 pages. Very nicely decorated double title-page, fine calligraphy (title-page in lantsa and u-chen, and main text in u-mé-script) and many full-page illustrations on nutricion, treatment of patients, f.i. moxabuxion, etc.
Very rare!
