Quick Overview


This book is in real sense a key to homoeopathic materia medica. Something which is useful for bed-side prescription as well as for quick revision. An introductory note has been added by Norbert Winter which briefs about the utility and structure of the book making it easier for the readers to understand the practicality of this work.



The book is divided into three parts:



1) 203 pages Repertory and supplemental reference table



2) 291 pages Materia  Medica which is laid out in physiological spheres of activities with modalities and relationships



3) 6 pages section of 3 appendices



It has a fascinating layout and concept. Each remedy is presented in concise and clear words. In Boger's layout you can easily see which remedy affects which specific part of the body. Here, at a glance, this all is available. This book intends to make the general expression or genius of each remedy, thereby helping the prescriber to correct the manner of his practice.



The repertory is too instructive in its own way and many hints can be gathered from its unusual layout. It can also be applied as the "supplemental reference table".



Cyrus Maxwell Boger (May 13, 1861 - September 2, 1935) was born in western Pennsylvania. He graduated from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and then gained his medical degree from Hahnemann College in Philadelphia in 1888. He settled in West Virginia, where he spent the rest of his life. He brought Boenninghausen’s  Characteristics and Repertory into the English Language in 1905. He wrote the Synoptic Key and Repertory in 1915 and General Analysis and Card Index in 1931. Boger served as the IHA president in 1904. He was on the faculty of the AFH postgraduate course from 1924 until his death. He died at the age of 74 from food poisoning.

Cyrus Maxwell Boger was born on May 13, 1861 in western Pennsylvania, the son of Cyrus and Isabelle Maxwell Boger. He received his elementary education in the public schools of Lebanon, Pa., then graduated in pharmacy from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and later in medicine from Hahnemann Medical College of Philadelphia. He settled in Parkersburg, W. Va., in 1888 where a long and very large practise was his, patients consulting him from neighboring states and from distant states and countries. His ambition was to devote all his time to teaching and writing but he never reached the point of giving up his practise. However, he frequently lectured before scientific audiences at the Pulte Medical College in Cincinnati and was a teacher of philosophy, materia medica, and repertory study in the American Foundation for Homoeopathy Postgraduate School from 1924 until his death. Boger, who was a german scholar, brought Bœnninghausen's Characteristics and Repertory into the English Language in 1905. He was married three times. A daughter of the first marriage died quite young. The second marriage brought him four sons and five daughters. His third wife, Anna M. Boger, was his secretary and constant helper. He died on September 2, 1935, aged 74, from food-poisoning after eating a tin of home-preserved tomatoes. He was a devoted follower of the Boenninghausen method of a repertory study, as all his published works show.
