Published circa 1900, the twelfth edition of this very popular book on homoeopathy by Edward Harris Ruddock gives a comprehensive coverage of the topic.

Following a brief history of homoeopathy and its future Ruddock makes general observations on health, medicines and their administration, nursing, diet, baths and other accessory treatments. The second part of the book gives specific information on the treatment of a wide range of diseases under the general headings of blood diseases; constitutional diseases; diseases of the nervous system; diseases of the eyes, ears and nose; diseases of the respiratory system; diseases of the digestive system; diseases of the urinary system; diseases of the cutaneous system; unclassified diseases and injuries-accidents.

The third part, Concise Materia Medica, points out a few of the leading indications for the use of about fifty remedies including arsenicum, belladonna, ignatia, opium and phosphorus while the fourth part, a clinical directory, prescribes for numerous other diseases and conditions, arranged alphabetically.
