Book Description

This edition provides an insight into the dark areas between Victorian science, medicine and religion. The rare reset source material in this collection is organized thematically and spans the period from initial mesmeric experiments at the beginning of the nineteenth century to the decline of the Society for Psychical Research in the 1920s.

Reviews

"Overall, the collection’s five volumes, focusing on different thematic aspects, give a comprehensive and entertaining historical analysis of spiritualism, mesmerism, telepathy, visions, and hallucinations and their associated elements in the nineteenth and early twentieth century in western Europe and North America."

- Alison Butler, Memorial University, Preternature Review
