The Therapeutic Pocket Book (For Homeopathic Physicians, to be Used at the Bedside of the Patient, and in Studying the Materia Medica Pura) by Clemens von Boenninghausen, was first published in 1846. T. F. Allen's translation came out in 1891.
This opus is the quintessential Boenninghausen, presenting his ideas in their most effective manner. He used 5 grades to differentiate symptoms in this repertory, from 'doubtful' to 'proving symptoms repeatedly verified'. Though extensively used by some of our most gifted practitioners-Lippe, Case, etc., others such as Kent disparaged its value.
In his Preface Boenninghausen says, "There is no doubt that a diligent and comprehensive study of the pure materia medica cannot be thoroughly accomplished by the use of any repertory whatever."
At the same time he recognized the need for a reference that contained the characteristic symptoms. Thus permitting the busy practitioner to select from the remedies generally indicated the one most homeopathically suitable, without too great a loss of time.
He felt that other repertories were incomplete due to the listing of partially complete symptoms. Body parts listed without sensation, omitted aggravations and ameliorations, the absence of concomitants, etc. Boenninghausen felt that the older repertories scattered symptoms among different rubrics making the comprehension of the totality difficult.
To remedy these identified defects he gathers together all the affected localities, all the sensations, all the aggravations and ameliorations, all the concomitants, each fitting into its own place in the case. This process creates the totality of the symptom ultimately ending with the selection of the appropriate remedy.

The work of a homeopathic student while studying and applying materia medica is one to constantly compare and differentiate. He must compare the pathogenesis of a remedy with the recorded anamnesis of the patient; he must differentiate the apparently similar symptoms of two or more medicinal agents in order to select the simillimum. To enable the student or practitioner to do this correctly the student must have proper knowledge of the individuality of the remedy; something that is peculiar, uncommon, or sufficiently characteristic in the polychrest remedy that may be used as a pivotal point of comparison. This pivotal point may be a ‘keynote,’ a ‘characteristic,’ or the ‘red strand of the rope.’ This excellent work by Dr H.C. Allen helps the reader to grasp the PQRS symptoms in no time.Learn More
The Organon of Medicine - 5th and 6th edition by Samuel Hahnemann and translated by R.E. Dudgeon was published in 1970. It is a combination of the revised 5th Edition by Dudgeon( 1893) and 6th edition by Boericke.
Dudgeon's revision was an effort to make a more exact reproduction of the orginial. Dudgeon added an appendix to his ediion wherein he features the important variations of the previous editions. This presents a detailed history of the origin, growth and progress of the homeopathic system of medicine. It's an excellent learning process to see the changes in Hahnemann's thinking from the 5th to the 6th edition. This further facilitates side-by-side comparison of the text. Some of the paragraphs were modified, some were re-written completely and others were eliminated. As opposed to the view that the 6th edition is late in the life aberration, Dudgeon's work clearly shows the evolutionary development that occurred.Learn More
