a practical manual of animal magnetism

manual of animal magnetism



containing an exposition of the methods employed in producing the magnetic phenomena: with its application to the treatment and cure of diseases


The studies of Mesmerism having become so very- general in this country within the last few years, — a circumstance for which we are mainly indebted to the untiring zeal and indefatigable exertions of Dr. Elliot- son, — it was found necessary that the English public should possess some work in their own language, which might serve as an introduction to this truly interesting science. 

The great popularity of Dr Teste's Manuel Pratique de Magnetisme Aiiimal, the very clear and methodical exposition which it gives of the various processes employed in the production of the magnetic phenomena, and of the application of this science to the alleviation and cure of disease, at once pointed it out as one which, presented in an English dress, might prove not unacceptable to the English public. 

It will be found to possess those qualities which must recom- mend every didactic work, viz. great simplicity and great clearness of arrangement.
