Edward John Waring was an English practitioner of Indian pharmacology. Waring was at the service of the East India Company in which he undertook the duties of assistant-surgeon in the Madras establishment where he remained throughout the Burmese war. The post gave him charge of Mergni in the Tennasserim provinces, a remote place over 1,000 miles from Calcutta. Transportation difficulty during the war caused the drug supplies of Mergni to run short and Waring sought native medicines, an investigation which led him to study the properties of indigenous plants of India, and eventually to publish this work. It was published in English and Tamil in 1860, and later translated into Malyalim and the Karen languages of Burma.
