Homoeopathic Recorder

(c.1886  -  1959)

"Whenever I produce a fine result with a homoeopathic remedy I always think of the HOMOEOPATHIC RECORDER, as this seems to be the only journal I know that insists on pure Homoeopathy "
-Henry Hallock, MD

The Homoeopathic Recorder was established in 1886 to replace Boericke and Tafel's Quarterly Bulletin of Homoeopathic Literature, which was established in 1871.

It was devoted to presenting excerpts from foreign Homoeopathic literature, the introduction of new remedies, and advancing knowledge of the older ones.

In 1927 the journal was assumed by the International Hahnemannian Association and became its official publication.

During its long history it remained dedicated to the highest standards and offers some of the most valuable and important information in any of the journals we are making available.

Julian Winston in The Heritage of Homeopathic Literature writes:

"The only record of pure homeopathy through homeopathy's lean years. Papers by Roberts, Dixon, Hayes, Grimmer, Green, Wright-Hubbard, Whitmont, and others. Buried within is a column called Carriwidgets - which is filled with all kinds of practical advice. A very valuable resource."

One of its notable accomplishments was the printing of a number of the translated aphorisms from The Aphorisms of Hippocrates with the Glosses of a Homoeopathist by Boenninghausen. This book takes the classic by Hippocrates, written about 400 BCE, and comments on each aphorism.

This book was to have been translated into English and printed in the USA, but the printing business and negotiations were put on hold during the American Civil War, and by the time the war was over, the author had died. The book remained only in German.
