Hahnemann's quotations, like those of any other author, need verification, and experience has amply proved the usefulness of the task. It has often been lamented that Hahnemann has given us so little information as to the circumstances under which his symptoms were observed. In the case of himself and his fellow-provers, we must await for this, till if ever they are their day-books are published.

But as regards the observations he has cited from authors, the information we desire is in the main accessible to us. It only needs a search in the great libraries which aim at including all literature to find the journals, transactions, and treatises, extant in Hahnemann's day, and from which he quoted. The result is illumination. A flood of light is cast upon the separate symptoms he has furnished: we learn their subjects, the dose and preparation of the drug, the order pursued by the phenomena, and their termination.
Many misconceptions which we are liable to form of them, standing alone, are removed; and the whole series becomes intelligible and available for practice. The investigations of this kind which have been hitherto carried out, have disclosed a strange laxity on Hahnemann's part, as regards the materials he has used.
Symptoms of the most questionable kind, condemned by his own canons, and such as no one now would admit into a pathogenesis or use in practice, find frequent place in the Materia Medica Pura and the Chronic Diseases. It has been suggested in explanation, that Hahnemann left this part of his work to others, and must not be blamed for their errors; and further, that he gave these symptoms as corroborative only.
But, however this may be, there they stand; undistinguished in most collections as in Jahr and Hempel , from those which surround them, undistinguished always among themselves. They need imperatively the fullest investigation, that their real character may be exposed, and they be either dropped or stigmatized as dubious. No response came, and no public body took up the undertaking.
My attention was then drawn to Dr.
Allen's projected Encyclopedia, and it seemed to me a grievous thing that Hahnemann's pathogenesies should once more go forth to the world with their citations unverified, unillumined, unrevised.
I wrote to Dr. Allen, offering to do this work for him. He closed with me at once, and liberally provided the necessary means, and I have been engaged in the investigation ever since. At present, they are incorporated into the Materia Medica as presented in these pages. In the heading, instead of a bare list of names of authors from whom Hahnemann has quoted, there is affixed to each a brief statement of the nature of his observations, sufficient to show generally the value of the symptoms derived from this source.
Next, to each symptom that requires it a note is appended, throwing light upon its causation and connections.
Last, all doubtful symptoms are bracketed squarely, to distinguish them from those which Hahnemann himself has bracketed, with like intent.
In succeeding volumes, two kinds of brackets will be used as here suggested.
I could myself have wished, in many instances, to expunge rather than to bracket; but, in reverence for the master, Dr. Allen desires to omit nothing which he has given us, and it is left to the judgment of the reader to estimate all according to the information supplied. My notes occupy a separate division of the page, to keep them distinct from those which Hahnemann has appended to his symptoms. The value of these notes will be recognized by the following samples.
Natrum muriat. Chronische Krankheiten Vierte Theile.
Nitrum, page , symptom , instead of "Nervengegend" read Nierengegend! Sabadilla, Archiv 4, 3, page ; full of errors.
The worst are, page , instead of "Wein-trinken read Warm-trinken," etc. When existing translations have been found accurate, their phraseology has been retained, in order to make as little change as possible in existing Repertories or habitual use of symptoms.
For several years the editor has kept, added to, and elaborated a small manuscript vocabulary, which includes the most obscure terms used in describing symptoms, the translation of which has been adopted after numerous comparisons and conferences with German scholars. Much aid has been obtained from a table of terms published in the Vierteljahrschrift, especially in the matter of provincialisms.
