A Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica Vol 1-2-3.
By John Henry Clarke
A major classic among the materia medicas – one of the most comprehensive encyclopedias of materia medica, with many different remedies. The general overview of the character of each remedy is especially valuable. In contrast to other encyclopedias, the remedies are illustrated and brought to life by numerous case studies.
A quarter of a Century in use is a very fair test for any practical work, and this A Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica has stood so well that publishers have decided to issue it in a form and at a price which should put it within the reach of all practitioners and students of Homoeopathy.
- A pulling together of Allen's Encyclopedia, Hering's Guiding Symptoms, and Haie's Remedies.
- The clinical uses of the remedies are discussed, cases are given as examples of use, and then the remedy symptoms are listed using the Hahnemann Schema.
- If one needed just a single materia medica, this set might serve the purpose.
The first volume was issued in 1900. Volumes 2 and 3 were completed in 1902.
