Le Magnétisme animale - Étude historique et critique - ouvrage orné de plusieurs gravures - 1889 première édition - 498 pages
F.-A. Mesmer, an Austrian physical who would conquer Paris, had the initial, exclusively therapeutic concern of communicating a dose of regenerative fluid to those lacking it, in order to restore the physical and mental order of the subjects.
The spread of Mesmer’s doctrine and practice between the late eighteenth century and the 1850s was marked, among other things, by various scandals as well as by many institutional developments brought about by the refusal of recognition by academic bodies.
Animal magnetism’s official scientific failure, however, did not prevent it from spreading and making a curious journey that gathered its practitioners from Paris across all of Europe as well as the United States, where it returned in the 1850s via England.
Condition: library stamp on the title page, fragile spine, very nice general appearance.
