Many homeopathic guides have been created over time. This particular work is compiled from the standard works of Pulte, Laurie, Hempel, Ruddock, Burt, Verdi, and others, in order to offer twenty-eight homoeopathic remedies. Many quacks, charlatans and snake oil salesmen have roamed the world, claiming medical knowledge. This volume claimed to be a guide against them, suggesting better cures for cholera, small pox, poisoning and even drowning. Some of the cures include known toxins, such as belladonna and mercury. Obviously the work is offered only for historical interest, and not as medical advice!
