High quality British edition of the celebrated work of Dr John Henry Clarke.Three excellent volumes in a slipcase. Highly recommended. Normal retail price is £120.00 - A wonderful opportunity to upgrade a homeopathic library.. Used extensively by Frans Vermeulen in his now unavailable Concordant Materia Medica. The format is very similar (!) However this has more content. Masses of information to be found in over 2500 pages.
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.
HUGELY RECOMMENDED. This set of books has stood the test of time. Great for the clinic when analysing cases.
