Because a number of physicians desired to obtain certain essays by Boenninghausen and because of the difficulty in obtaining them, Messrs. Boericke & Tafel decided some years since that it would be a favour and advantage to the homoeopathic profession to collect the shorter writings of the old practitioner, many of which had never been before published in English, in book form.
The result is thus presented. This book includes presumably all the magazine articles by Boenninghausen, and a few of the smaller of the pamphlets written by him.
The translations were made by Prof. L. H. Tafel especially for this book.
It has been the pleasure of the editor to collect the articles and in order so to do, all the German and French journals have been examined very carefully.
These articles have been translated from the original journals, and the phraseology has been left intact.
It is the hope that the book will be of some advantage to those of our school who have not advanced so far as to consider Boenninghausen’s opinion behind the times.
