The Air Loom gang : the strange and true story of James Tilly Matthews and his visionary madness by Mike Jay( Book )

"London, the 1790s. Europe is in turmoil, and mysterious forces seem to be edging England into a disastrous war with France. Not quite at the center of the political maelstrom is James Tilly Matthews, a Welsh tea merchant and antiwar activist who holds covert meetings with the leaders of both countries. But Matthews also believes his mind is being controlled by a gang of revolutionary terrorists and their diabolical secret machine: the Air Loom." "The only person aware of the Air Loom's existence, Matthews is promptly declared mad and exiled to Bedlam, the world's most notorious madhouse, where he is held against his will for the rest of his life. At Bedlam his "delusions" are celebrated as the most complex and bizarre ever recorded. He remains one of the most famous cases in psychiatric history - the first man to believe his mind was being controlled by a machine. The truth of his case, however, was even stranger than his doctors realized: many of the incredible political episodes in which he claimed to have been involved were entirely real."--Jacket
The atmosphere of heaven : the unnatural experiments of Dr. Beddoes and his sons of genius by Mike Jay( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 380 libraries worldwide
This riveting book is the first to tell the story of Dr. Beddoes and the brilliant circle who surrounded him: Erasmus Darwin, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Robert Southey, who supported his ideas; James Watt, who designed and built his laboratory; Thomas Wedgwood, who funded it; and the dazzling young chemistry assistant, Humphry Davy, who identified nitrous oxide and tested it on himself, with spectacular results. Medical historian Mike Jay charts the chaotic rise and fall of the institution in this fast-paced account, and reveals its crucial influence on modern drug culture, attitudes toward objective and subjective knowledge, the development of anesthetic surgery, and the birth of the Romantic movement
