Homeopathy Repertory – James Tyler Kent. James Tyler Kent (1849–1916) wrote the most popular repertory ever. The first edition of repertory came out in loose sheet form in 1897. Repertory was issued in the book form for the fist time in 1899. If urinary organs are considered as one chapter the repertory has 33 chapters but if as five separate chapters ( Bladder, kidneys, prostate, urethra, urine) the number of chapters becomes 37. Chapters start with mind and ends in generalities.
This work is offered to the profession as a general Repertory of the Homoeopathic Materia Medica. It has been built from all sources, and is a compilation of all the useful symptoms recorded in the fundamental works of our Materia Medica, as well as from the notes of our ablest practitioners. Many unverified symptoms have been omitted, but only when there was a decided doubt about their consistency. And on the other hand clinical matters have been given a place when it was observed to be consistent with the nature of the remedy.
