Lippe was one of Hering’s earliest pupils. The book uses Hahnemann’s schema, and lists the characteristics and most prominent symptoms of each remedy. It was originally published in five parts. The first symptoms given are those of the mind, followed by those of the different parts of the body, beginning with the head, which also includes giddiness and concluding with the feet. Then come the generalities, comprising the symptoms relating to the Nervous Systems and to the Circulation; those belonging to Sleep, Fever and the Skin; and finally, the most prominent conditions of Aggravation and Amelioration, from time, place and circumstance. Lippe is considered by many to be one of the finest Hahnemannian homeopathy ever, and his symptomatology in this book is very reliable. The book formed the base for Hering’s Condensed Materia Medica which started as an interleaved copy of Lippe’s work, with Hering’s additions.
