Henri Clay ALLEN M.D. 1836-1909
What applied to the third edition applies to this, the fourth. The facet that a fourth is demanded is onvincing proof that Dr. Allen left an indestructible monument of homeopathic materia medica, on that is true to Homeopathy an immensely helpful to every physician who consults it.
Preface : Third Edition
The first edition of this book was only about half the size of the second, as it was prepared somewhat hastily for a special purpose, but Dr. Allen took his time to the second edition and gave the world a well rounded out and complete standard book on homeopathic materia medica. We do no mean that the first edition was faulty as to its matter, for is was used unchanged in the later edition, but it did not embrace a sufficient number of remedies. As Dr. Allen died before a third edition was needed we concluded to bring it out unchanged. It is a masterpiece of materia medica work: its symptomatology is made up of the unchanging landmarks of our remedies that are in constant use; it is, in short, a book that needs no revision.
