It cost me £35 on Amazon, not bad, huh? If you would like more modern books written on mesmerism, I highly recommend texts by Dr Martin Willis. He taught me everything I know and frequently writes on the subject. Mesmerists, Monsters and Machines is a particularly fine book.

Powerful and amazing, as well as a huge influence upon / contributor to Victor Anderson's Feri Tradition here in the States.


I didn't know that.  Truly the depths of your knowledge are unfathomable.

Below are a few links to some of AE's work available online :

That is the one that I obtained from a purveyor of volumes.

WANT!!! I have quite a few books on hypnosis already and methinks I need to get that as well!

There is a rather succinct Mesmer
bibliography at the Bakken site :

A Brief Mesmer & Mesmerism
Bibliography

http://tinyurl.com/ckztrf

One item stands out most especially :

Mesmerism; a Translation of
the Original Medical and Scientific
Writings of F.A. Mesmer, M.D.

Compiled and translated by George J.
Bloch, 1980.

I heartily recommend Bloch's edition,
which contains Mesmer's doctoral
thesis and gives us the privilege of
acquainting ourselves with Mesmer's
own ideas on the subject.

All too often, any discussion of his
work in the area of Animal Magnetism
is derailed and becomes instead a
discussion of the 'power of suggestion'.

Some of those sound very interesting! Here are some of the books I own, in case anyone is making an amazon wishlist:

Alison Winter "Mesmerized", Martin Willis "Victorian Literary Mesmerism", Harold Bloom "Nathaniel Hawthorne", Coale's "Mesmerism and Hawthorne", Martin Willis "Mesmerists, Monsters and Machines".

I would also add, for interest, the non mesmerism related books:

Carlos Castaneda "The Teachings of Don Juan", Peter Underwood "Dictionary of the Occult and Supernatural", Dan Con-Sherbock "Eploring Reality"...

Most of these are either from Amazon, or second hand book shops, you will be amazed at what you can find in dusty old book shops, most of them have an Esoterica, New Age or Parapsychology section if you ask! I told my local book seller what I studied, and he said "Mesmerism eh? Well don't look me directly in he eye, you ain't having hese books for free!". Jolly good! *grins*

Haha! A friend of mine has this with LaVey's Satanic Bible. He keeps giving it to people who never return it.

@darkshines
two of those Necronomica have only the name in common with the "real" thing and one of those is just a vile piece of new-age-esoteric dribble.

That's just it, I never loan out or give away books, and anyone that knows me knows enough not to even ask & they know how I handle thieves.

These just up and vanish whenever the mood strikes them, I must have gone though at least a half dozen copies so far.

Oh sure, one gods-cursed tome has a predisposition towards disapearing, and everyone jumps right into blaming cthulu.

So unfair.

over the years (there are now ten -

He doesn't consider Donald Tyson's
