what was the first repertory ever printed?


Most homeopathic historians suggest that Boenninghausen’s ‘Repertory of Antipsoric’ was the first published repertory. It came out in 1832. Some believe Weber’s German repertory was the first. It’s publication year is considered 1830. The first repertory ever published in English was by Dr. Constantine Hering. He published his repertory in 1838.


Historically, Hahnemann himself is known as the first repertorian. He compiled a repertory for himself titled ‘ Fragmenta De Viribus Medicamentorum Positivis Sive in Sano Corpore Observatis’. It was printed in Latin in 1805. It contained 27 remedies. But it has never been published.



I hope this is of help,
