About this title


Excerpt from Key-Notes to the Materia Medica

When it was proposed that my lectures on Materia Medica be published, I consented, on condition that they should be reported as delivered, (for they were not written out), including all my comparisons, exhortations, explanations, actual cases in practice, in point, &c.

The profession at large would then have had an opportunity of judging of their value; and the Student a living reminder of the manner of using the Materia Medica. This would have made a much larger book, and to my mind a far more useful one. Some of my colleagues, be it said to their credit, strove hard that my plan might be fulfilled; others objected, saying, that the remedies and their dead symptoms only, were most important. My son, Jos. C. Guernsey, M.D., (who has from the first reported and attended to the publishing of the lectures), has had the great labor of assorting and arranging these symptoms as best he could, to keep the whole from appearing in a confused and unintelligible mass of words.

It must be remembered, that in a Medical School, where all classes of students congregate, we cannot give such lectures as would interest the old and skillful practitioner.

To give anything like an exhaustive course of lectures on the Materia Medica, would require at least from three to four sessions of five months each, to complete even one course. The book will be found to contain, only the more characteristic symptoms, and generally, only those peculiar to each remedy. It is hoped the work may prove of value, both to the practitioner and student.
