The following treatise contains all that Schussler wrote on the subject. The
symptoms have been compiled from the entire available literature and enriched
with author's personal experience. Since its first edition in 1888 and thereafter, its
steadily increasing demand has exhausted four large editions and necessitated
the preparation of a fifth edition.
William Boericke was born on October 25, 1849 in Austria. He graduated from the
Philadelphia Medical College in 1876 and from Hahnemann Medical College in
Philadelphia in 1880. Moving to San Francisco, he practiced as a homeopath for
over fifty years. He was also a member of faculty of the Hahnemann Medical
College in San Francisco. In 1901, he authored Boericke's Materia Medica. On
April 1, 1929 he died of a massive heart attack.
Willis A. Dewey (MD) was born on October 25, 1858, Middleburry, Vermout. He
graduated from New York Homeopathic Medical College in 1880. He was the
professor of anatomy and then of Materia Medica at the Homoeopathic Medical
College of San Francisco. In 1896, he accepted the chair of Materia Medica at the
University of Michigan. He contributed immensely towards homeopathic literature
in his lifetime.
THE steadily increasing demand for this work has exhausted four large editions and necessitated the preparation of a fifth edition. What was intended originally as a mere suggestive guide to the use of a set of valuable remedies has developed by the demands of the profession into a volume comprising the whole of our present therapeutic knowledge of the so-called Twelve Tissue Remedies. Compilation largely from every available source has to sup-plement the authors' personal experience and knowledge of these remedies.
All the published data have been made use of but thoroughly sifted and critically examined. In its present form, we believe this fifth edition will be found a reliable guide to the use of the Tissue Remedies in disease, not only as far as possible, according to the distinctive theory of Schussler, as corrected and modified by him up to the time of his death, but especially according to the finer and more discriminating method of Hahnemann.
The clinical evidence of the truth of Schusslees indic at'ons is overwhelming and since his time they have been largeiy con-firmed by homoeopathic and eclectic physicians, but the need c t thorough systematic provings according to the method of Homoeopathy in order to enlarge and precisionize our knowl-edge of these great medicines is imperative.
Many German editions of Schussler's "Abgelearzte Ther-apie" have been published since the last edition of this work was issued, the therapeutic development of these remedies has made wonderful strides, and our periodical literature during the past few years has contained many records of cures wrought by them. All this has been incorporated and this work, in its present complete and revised form, is the only adequate presentation of the therapeutic possibilities of the Tissue Remedies existent.
We trust that the same consideration accorded to previous editions will be extended to this by aga indulgent profession.
