Overview

Rademacher's object was to make known the excellent virtues of some remedies, which he not only found efficacious, but which he declared to be really indispensable.

Ramseyer’s translation, though but a fraction of the original work, is a very useful guide to the understanding of organ remedies or near-specifics.
