This book gives a record of thought by one of the best writers in the field of homoeopathy, Dr. Robert Ellis DUDGEON(1819-1904),M.D, and from a time which was just 8 years after Hahnemann's death. It is the unvarnished beginning. It is packed with information never seen elsewhere, and gives detailed and sound accounts of the views of nearly all homoeopathic doctors throughout the world on Hahnemann's system. Beauty of his work is that he was an excellent scholar, and every opinion and judgement he offers --and he offers many --is backed up with historical detail and based upon his own clinical experience. One of the salient features of this book is that it contains a very good account of Hahnemann's life, as well as numerous details about the historical development of potentization, and about the development of homoeopathy in general.
