An invaluable piece of work on remedy pictures portrayed from author's own experience and well supported by generous quotes from Hahnemann, T.F. Allen, Hering, Burnett, Farrington, Kent and Clarke. A useful background to each drug picture has been provided with respect to its history, source, preparation, use and comparative aspect. Tyler's liberal inclusion of cases, articles and letters from multiple sources enriches each remedy picture and widens the scope of this work as a handy reference. A captivating writing style and sublime description of various particulars make this literature simply fascinating to read. 125 classical drug pictures collected together in one complete volume. Also included in these descriptions are quotes from the masters and real life clinical cases.
Gives interesting histories and anecdotes for most of the remedies along with listing the
"black-letter" or keynote Symptoms and quotes widely from past masters of Homeopathy.
"125 remedies covered in a narrative style. Many quotes appear from other authors. Reprinted through present day. So many other sources are quoted, that it is almost like a "Reader's Digest" of materia medica. Her flowing, narrative style makes this an exceptionally readable book, and a great book for the neophyte. Of course, one should look at her writing with a view to the historical perspective; when she says of a remedy type, "look out the window you can see this type in the street," please remember she is talking about the mid-1930's in London and not in the present day in San Francisco!"
