This is the high quality British edition but is lacking the slipcase.  ONE SET LEFT AT THIS PRICE. THE FIRST VOLUME OF THE THREE IS FROM AN EARLIER PRINTING AND IS APPROX HALF A CENTIMETRE TALLER AND WIDER. Volume one is unused but has some shelfwear and has picked up dust on outside of pages.There is a different Homeopathic Book Service logo on the spine.  Volumes two and three are new and excellent. A complete bargain at this price.

This has retailed at £120 in the past.


Used extensively by Frans Vermeulen when compiling his Concordant Materia Medica.
Masses of information to be found in over 2500 pages. A wonderful resource for every homeopath and student.
Used extensively by Frans Vermeulen when producing the Concordant Materia Medica. Compare the two!
This work draws together the material found in Allen's Encyclopedia of 12 volumes, Hering's Guiding Symptoms (10 volumes) , and Hale's New Remedies. Cinical uses of the remedies are discussed, cases are presented and remedy symptoms are listed using the Hahnemannian schema. When questioned on the sheer length and detail of his labours, Clarke commented "My work is a dictionary and I have never found a dictionary that explained too many words." 
The first volume was issued in 1900. Volumes 2 and 3 were published two years later.
Many Clarke fans particularly treasure the narrative that precedes the listing of symptoms in which stories of the remedies are given. Gems from Burnett, Skinner, and Cooper are to be found, and unique characteristics of the remedy under discussion are presented.
