Description

The fifth edition of Hahnemann's Organon was translated into English by Conrad Wesselhoeft of Boston. It is clear from his introduction, however, that while still critical of allopathic practice, Wesselhoeft was not a homeopathic fundamentalist: "Although the Organon has been and is our principle text-book for the present, it has not been republished under the impression that all its doctrines and principles are to be accepted literally and unconditionally. As each one has a style of his own, the details in the application of the principles of the Organon must necessarily vary with different individuals. While admitting these, we should also allow a certain latitude in the interpretation of various dogmas advanced in the Organon."

This particular copy was owned by Grace Ella Cross (1863-1953) while she was attending the homeopathic medical school at Boston University in 1885.
