Acknowledged as the BIBLE of Homeopathy, this work of Boericke is considered as an elaborative construct of our material medica. Regarded as a classic, this book is an important addition to the physician’s desk and student’s collection as well. It is one of the most valued contributions by Dr. William Boericke. The book is divided into two parts- Materia Medica and Repertory. The author has given a succinct resume of verified characteristic symptoms of every medicine used in homoeopathy including clinical suggestions of several drugs in the Materia Medica part.
Repertory begins after conclusion of the materia medica section and proceeds from the Chapter Mind to Modalities. This literature has an added advantage, as it is a compendium of a CLINICAL REPERTORY which was compiled by Dr. Oscar Boericke (William Boericke’s brother) which is very useful for bed-side prescribing. Medicines in repertory are given in 2 grades only, making the selection easier (more frequently verified clinical symptoms are written in Italics).
Towards the end, a segment is devoted to RELATIONSHIP OF REMEDIES in tabular form, mentioning the complementaries, inimicals, antidotes, and duration of action of drugs according to author’s observations, making it easier for quick reference at clinics. Another valuable feature is the chapter on THERAPEUTIC INDEX which lists out the commonly indicated medicines for various ailments so if in a hurry and want to glance through the most common medicines for a particular ailment, voila!
Altogether, an immensely informative, comprehensive, useful book at all levels. In short MATERIA MEDICA, REPERTORY, THERAPEUTICS in a single book.
INSERTION OF SEPARATE SECTIONS of NOSODES and SARCODES, MOTHER TINCTURES, RARE AND UNCOMMON REMEDIES
Alphabetical arrangement of medicines.

Nothing more can be said about Boericke's New Manual Of Homoeopathic Materia Medica & Repertory, as mentioned in the title itself it covers both the major aspects of Homoepathy. A perfect guide to the science. No doubt it is one of the major book by the stalwart.
What I find amazing is the explanation of the medicines, Dr. Boericke has not left out anything, starting from the common name to the relationship of medicines. Amazing book and a must have book.
The most important book for Materia medica covering all the medicines. There is no other book needed to be consulted after it. it is a precious piece.
The most amazing aspect of the book is repertory which gives only 2 grading of symptoms, easy to consult and remember. also it covers the maximum drugs present in materia.
The most helpful books of all times. The Bible. Can trust blindly for MM and Repertory.
