The Quimby Manuscripts by Phineas Parkhurst Quimby are a truly great read for those who are interested in understanding more about the power of thought in healing. It is a collection of the various works of Quimby, put together by Horatio W. Dresser, a man who claimed that both he and his wife had been cured by the healing powers possessed by Quimby.

The book is a concise collection of the various writing of Quimby that had previously been unattainable by the public due to being withheld by a Mrs Mary Eddy. The book is mostly made up of Quimby's work but has been edited and added to by Mr. H. Dresser in an attempt to make them more readable and to avoid repetition. Included in the book are an assortment of letters exchanged between Quimby and his patients and those interested in his works. The book is also of quite a religious flavour, with Quimby addressing how he believed his work to fit in with Christian Science.

It is a highly interesting book with many remarkable ideas on the healing of the body through spiritual means and the power of thought. Quimby work is often referred to as the forerunner of the 'New Thought' movement of the 19th century. A truly unmissable read on the subject of esoteric and spiritual healing.

About the Author:

Phineas Parkhurst Quimby (February 16, 1802 – January 16, 1866), was an American spiritual teacher, philosopher, magnetizer, mesmerist, healer, and inventor, who resided in Belfast, Maine, and had an office in Portland, Maine. His work is widely recognized as leading to the New Thought movement. When Charles Poyen, a French mesmerist, came to Belfast, Maine, on a lecture circuit about mesmerism around 1836, Quimby attended one of his lectures, and immediately began plying the mesmerist with questions about the nature of animal magnetism and its powers. Poyen admitted that with proper training, anyone could become adept at administering hypnotism. Quimby left his job as watchmaker and followed Poyen's tour of New England for the subsequent two years (1838–1840), until he became proficient at applying mesmeric hypnotism himself. Around this time Quimby encountered Lucius Burkmar, an uneducated youth who was particularly susceptible to hypnosis. Quimby and Lucius began a tour of their own, practicing mesmeric demonstrations in front of large crowds.
