Plain Talks on Materia Medica with Comparisons by W.I. Pierce
Plain Talks on Materia Medica with Comparisons by Willard Ide Pierce. This is a comparative materia medica arranged by symptoms, it induces the repertory habit in students. As it was arranged to be of assistance in office prescribing for the general practitioner, symptoms rather than diseased states have been sought for; when possible, differentiation have been made for the particular symptom or condition referred to. Dr. Willard Ide Pierce was a Director and Professor of Clinical Medicine at Kent’s post-graduate school in Philadelphia.
