Born in Munich, Germany, Lilienthal was granted his doctorate of medicine from the University of Munich in 1838. He migrated to America in 1839. He joined the faculty of the New York Homoeopathic Medical College in 1869, as chair of clinical medicine.

Lilenthal's Homoeopathic Therapeutics is well know to everybody in the profession. Somebody has rightly said, "For the fresh graduate this book will be invaluable ... to the older one who says he has no sue for this book, we have nothing to say. He is a good one to avoid when well, and to dread when ill." This is the only book of Lilienthal which we are aware of. Did he write any other gem? You will be surprised he did. We were also surprised when we discovered A Treatise on Diseases of the Skin by S Lilienthal, in the library of Dana Ullman in California, who himself was unaware of the presence of the book in his library. This copy is Lilienthal's own copy which is interleaves and has additional notes by the author in his own miniature writing.

Dana Ullman was kind enough to lend this coy to us for reprinting and making this gem available to the lovers of homoeopathy. This book is an antique published way back in 1876. The first and foremost task was to transcribe the black ink miniature notes written by the author on the interleaves pages. A task easier said than done. This was achieved by our professional team of two editors, namely Rohit Jain and Taru Bhagat, who painstakingly deciphered word by word with the help of a hand lens. 

Samuel Lilienthal was born on December 5, 1815. Dr. Lilienthal (1815 1891), a friend of Constantine Hering, was born in Germany and qualified as a doctor at the age of 23. He moved to New York and became the professor of Clinical Medicine at the New York Homeopathic College when he was 54. He was instrumental in encouraging women to become Homeopaths and was a prolific author. He received his doctorate of medicine in 1838 from the University of Munich. In 1889 he came to America and was introduced to homeopathy in 1847 while he was living in Lockport, NY. He became chair of clinical medicine when he joined the faculty at the New York Homoeopathic Medical College in 1869. With Constantine Hering's support Lilienthal became editor of the North American Journal of Homoeopathy' from 1872-1885. His comprehensive work, Homeopathic Therapeutics, was published in 1878. He proved several remedies including Carbolic acid and Physostigma venenosum. Lilienthal moved to San Francisco in 1887 to join his son James, who was teaching at the Homeopathic Medical College of the Pacific. Lilienthal then retired 1 year later.
