This is "A Textbook of Homoeopathic Pharmacy" by Dr Partha Pratim Mandal
and Dr Biman Mandal.
This book seeks to make everything as up-to-date as can be in this fast-moving world. It will certainly be a trusty companion to the practising physicians and pharmcists.
The chapters which deserve special mention deal with sources of Homoeopathic medicines, different scales of preparation of medicines, methods of preparing Homeopathic medicines, potentisation, and list of medicines with their common name, family, distribution, and parts used.
The authors, as I well know, are brilliant students of Homeopathy with genuine research and scientific aptitude.
They have earned well-deserved reputation in practising Homoeopathy.
I am sure that they will be able to offer more excellent works in future for the students and the profession.
