We all know that reading and memorizing the Materia Medica
is a must for homeopathic practice but how often are we able to
do that? Not always!
So as to make Materia Medica simple and easily referable
Lippe here presents a compiled work on keynotes of
homeopathic drugs. Infact, these are the symptoms we need
to be abreast with, to have a successful prescription and
hence successful results. The author also puts beyond the
red line, the chains of more symptoms leading to correct
diagnosis, in a particular characteristic combination.
There is also a mention of the modalities and relationship to
make our study more complete and easy to analyse.
Adolph Lippe (1812-1888) was one of the first graduates of
homeopathy in America. Lippe taught alongside Constantine
Hering at Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia and
wrote several very influential books which are still standard
textbooks today for modern homeopaths. Lippe also
translated many important homeopathic texts, thus enriching
American homeopathy. Lippe was a founding member of the
International Hahnemannian Association and he was a
colleague of James Tyler Kent, Henry Newell Guernsey,
Carroll Dunham and many other famous homeopaths. His
pioneering contributions will always be remembered.
The name and fame of the world-renowned Homoeopath,
Dr. Adolph von Lippe needs no introduction to the
Homoeopathic Fraternity. With our claim on their appreciation, we now present before them the author’s
masterpiece, "Key Notes of the Materia Medica,"
adding thereto the characteristic symptoms of the most
important remedies under the style, " Red Line Symptoms,"
gleaned from the author’s writings, appearing in several old
foreign journals, together with the other important ones,
collected from the writings of the great Homeopaths of
the by-gone days.
The book with these additions is in no sense a treatise
now, and must not be considered as such. Each sterling
symptom in the context other than that of Dr. Lippe has
the name of its author indicated against it in abbreviatory
form. The book is now as accurate and reliable a compilation and the fullest collection of the most common remedies
as it is possible to obtain within its compass.
It may be claimed that the book supplements
every other work on the subject, and if used as a ready
reminder of the common important facts of our vast Materia
Medica, it will fulfil its purpose and prove the greatest aid
to the profession and students alike.
