Allopathic old texts.
These are the kids who had to drag in the government to ban the other modalities, so much did they hate their competition ("Moo-oom! Tell Peter and Jane that they can't play in our playground anymore!"). They focus way too much on the use of single constituents, and way too little on the use of herbs; still, there are some interesting points of view, every now and then:
- A Compend of Materia Medica, Therapeutics and Prescription Writing (intro page), by Samuel O. L. Potter, M.D., 1902.
- The US Dispensatory (intro page) (preparations page), edited by Joseph P. Remington and Horatio C. Wood, 1918.
The US Dispensatory is a .html version of a .pdf file found on Michael Moore's site. It's used here with permission. Thanks Michael!
