Original Lithograph of Frederic Hervey Foster Quin with the caption at the bottom of the print: Homeopathic Society

Frederic Hervey Foster Quin (12 February 1799 – 24 November 1878) was the first homeopathic physician in England. In 1839 Quin completed the first volume of his translation of Hahnemann’s Materia Medica Pura, but a fire at his printers’ destroyed the whole edition of five hundred copies, and failing health prevented him from reprinting the work. In 1843 he established a short-lived dispensary, called the St. James’s Homœopathic Dispensary. In 1844 he founded the British Homeopathic Society, of which he was elected president. Chiefly through his exertions the London Homeopathic Hospital was founded in 1850. It became a permanent institution, and is now located in Great Ormond Street. On 18 October 1859 he was appointed to the chair of therapeutics and materia medica in the medical school of the hospital, and gave a series of lectures.
