        Album de photographies originales concernant les Laboratoires Homeopathiques de France de 1926 à 1955

      1955 - Album in folio constitué de 30 photographies originales et de lettres autographes. le volume à la fin est contresigné par tous les directeurs encore en vie. L'album fut certainement réalisé à un usage privé, mais nous ignorons lequel. Les photographies présentent soit des appareils (elles sont de grandes qualités) soit les différents bâtiments des Laboratoires ayant changés d'adresse au cours du temps : rue Edith Cavell, rue Rabelais à Asnières, 57 rue Nollet à paris à partir de 1947. . L'homéopathie est introduite en France en 1830 par le comte Sébastien Des Guidi, médecin d'origine napolitaine naturalisé français.Deux approches de l'homéopathie vont s'affronter en France dès 1835 : le courant des « puristes » fidèle aux principes Hahnemanniens et les « éclectiques » qui prônent une thérapeutique mixte qui associe homéopathie et allopathie. Suite à une épidémie de choléra et pour faire taire les calomnies, les deux courants vont fonder ensemble la Société gallicane de médecine homéopathique en 1850. Cependant, 10 ans plus tard, la société éclate. Jean-Paul Tessier fonde la Société médicale homéopathique de France en 1860, qui prône le rapprochement des deux thérapeutiques et qui s'oppose au courant de l'Hahnemannisme mené par Léon Simon. En 1870, deux hôpitaux dédiés à l'homéopathie sont créés à Paris : l'hôpital Hahnemann (Léon Simon) et l'hôpital St Jacques (Pierre Jousset, élève de Jean-Paul Tessier). L'hôpital St Luc sera créé à Lyon en 1875. Devant le développement du Pasteurisme, les Hahnemanniens purs et les éclectiques vont finalement s'entendre sur les principes de base de l'homéopathie : le principe de similitude, les doses infinitésimales, le méthode expérimentale et la matière médicale pure. Les deux sociétés fusionnent en 1889 en une seule entité : la Société française d'homéopathie. Cependant, au début du XXème siècle, les querelles se poursuivent, opposant les éclectiques Pierre Jousset puis Léon Vannier aux Hahnemanniens purs qui se regroupent dans la Société d'homéopathie du Sud Est et de la Suisse Romande. La revue Le propagateur de l'homéopathie, créée en 1905 par le Dr Gallavardin, lyonnais, et le Dr Nebal, homéopathe suisse, devient le lieu de débats entre les deux écoles de pratiques homéopathiques. En 1911, René Baudry, associé à Léon Vannier, ouvre à Paris la Pharmacie générale homéopathique française. Un an plus tard, Léon Vannier crée la revue l'Homéopathie française, devenu aujourd'hui l'Homéopathie européenne. Puis il fonde en 1926 les Laboratoires Homéopathiques de France, rendant ainsi l'accès aux médicaments homéopathiques plus facile. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
