Item Description: Chicago: The Psychic Research Company. 1902, 1902. 1902 reprint of 1846 first edition (I can't imagine it was reprinted very often). 165pp. + 4pp ads. Publisher's purple cloth, faded to spine, titled in gilt to front board. Minor scuffing and edgewear, very good indeed. Virulent and somewhat disturbing green and gold marbled endpapers, hardley conducive to mental clarity, internally clean and fresh. This edition has a preface by the rather appropriately named Sydney Flower of the Psychic Research Society, who rather defensively capitalises his usage of the word "FACTS" and ends with the phrase "Let us honour the man who blazed the path. We have little to do but cut away the underbrush." Mr. Flower's apparent aspirations towards poetic eulogy aside, the book is a fascinating and earnest account of the various successful uses of mesmerism practised by Dr. Esdaile during his sojourn, practising in 19th century India. A fascinating item. Bookseller Inventory # 42655

Item Description: The Psychic Research Company, 1902. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First US Edition. Hardcover. 8vo publisher's blue cloth gilt embossed on front cover. Reprint of the 1846 treatise by British surgeon Esdaile, who observed mesmeric phenomena while serving with the British Army in Bengal. Spine has been slightly sunned. Some very minor staining to boards but not moisture. Minor wear to extremities. Text block is clean and binding is tight and square. Esdaile recounts case after case of surgical techniques (up to and including limb amputations and tumour removals) performed on patients who had been mesmerised and who seemed to suffer no pain or discomfort of any kind. This is excellent knowledge for those hoping to enliven any gathering with a little home surgery. Bookseller Inventory # 6004
