Abstract:

"This second, and greatly enlarged edition, containing much entirely new matter, and the original part re-modelled, and, in part, re-written, so as to place the whole subject in a clearer light, and easier to be understood: and, in furtherance of this object, several engravings have been introduced, to illustrate the physiological portion. Knowing the distaste generally felt to lengthened discussion on the abstruse subject of psychology, the writer has scarcely ventured to exceed the original limits assigned to that portion of the work; but he has chiefly enlarged the chapter on the physiology and phenomena of mesmerism, and introduced a greater variety of notes of mesmeric and psychical experience, which the reader can explain by any theory or suggestion of his own, if dissatisfied with the author's. There are many gentlemen, of high professional attainments, who are satisfied of the certainty of the main facts of mesmerism, but consider that the time is not yet ripe for theory. To such, and, indeed, to all his readers, he would say, that he is chiefly desirous that his work should be considered as a truthful narrative of facts, which may confidently be relied on"--Preface.
