This collection of Japanese Medical Prints or Ukiyo-e is housed in the Clendening History of Medicine Library, at the Kansas University Medical Center. This group of prints is a small facet of the total donation that was donated sometime before May 1940, by Dr. Matthew PickardMost of the illustrations are accompanied by explanations of the condition or procedure portrayed. This one is attributed to the artist Kunisada Utagawa (1786-1864 ) and "talks about a good day to do moxa bustion [medical burning -- in this case foot burning]. (The fourth day is for fire) based on Japanese calendar." Via Bifurcated Rivets
