HOMEOPATHIC BOOKS FOR SALE (all in excellent condition)
Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica by J.H. Clarke - 3 Volumes
Printed in UK, Jain Publishers Ltd Description: Printed in India, Hardback, 1635 pages. (3 volumes.)
A pulling together of Allen's Encyclopedia, Hering's Guiding Symptoms, and Hale's New Remedies. Offering over 1000 remedies with information about indications, keynotes, relationships, alternative names, causations, affinities, and more. 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.
When some felt that the work was too long, Clarke replied: "My work is a dictionary and I have never found a dictionary that explained too many words."
If you needed a single materia medica, this set might serve the purpose. Although the materia medica in the Hahnemann Schema is of use, the real "gold" of this work is found in the narrative that precedes the listing, where stories of the remedies are related, snippets from Burnett, Skinner, and Cooper are found, and unique characteristics of the remedy under discussion are presented.

Clinic Focus Guide to Homeopathic Remedies, Volume 1 by Louis Klein
This book is an exemplary materia medica, a splendid example of what's needed in newer materiae medicae. The book is no mere rehashing of existing information. The material presented is in most cases novel and fresh. It is culled from Mr. Klein's extensive clinical experience, and its intention is to facilitate the reader's clinical practice, or, in a word, it's practical. This is a modern materia medica and its remedy characterizations are drawn in contemporary terms and, thus, relevant to what homeopathic clinicians see today.
