This excellent materia medica is great despite, or maybe because of its old fashioned language. Tyler paints very good pictures of 125 remedies. These books are in variable condition but somehow adds to their charm!

Tyler’s remedy differentials are very carefully described Inclusion of cases, articles, and letters from multiple sources enriches the picture of the remedies and gives this work an encyclopedic scope Comments by Historian Julian Winston: Her flowing, narrative style makes this an exceptionally readable book, and a great book for the neophyte. Of course, one should look at her writing with a view to the historical perspective; when she says of a remedy type, ‘look out the window you can see this type in the street,’ please remember she is talking about the mid-1930’s in London and not in the present day in San Francisco!
Excellent condition as new
