The Kirtsos Historical Library of Homoeopathic Medicine

Publisher Information: Novato: Norman Publishing, 2023.

The Kirtsos Library of Homoeopathic Medicine is an annotated bibliography of the world’s finest private historical library on the history of homeopathy, containing detailed descriptions of over four thousand rare books, periodicals, letters, manuscripts, ephemera and artifacts dating from the 18th to the mid-20th century. The product of 45 years of dedicated collecting, the library is especially rich in materials relating to homeopathy’s founder, Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843): It includes 166 Hahnemann listings, encompassing his first publications and all his classic homeopathic works and their translations, as well as numerous autograph letters, portraits and artifacts. In addition, the library contains a wide range of materials on the history and development of homeopathy, including classic works on homeopathic principles, philosophy, therapeutics, materia medica, surgery and veterinary medicine. Early works critical of Hahnemann and homeopathy are also represented.

Designed by noted book designer Jerry Kelly, set in Minion type and extensively illustrated in color, the finely printed catalogue contains 2200 annotated bibliographical listings interspersed with biographical sketches of 46 notable 19th- and 20th-century homeopathic physicians. Also included are a subject index; an index to periodicals, transactions and proceedings; a provenance index; and an index of inscribed copies.
