Complete Hypnotism, Mesmerism, Mind-Reading and Spiritualism 


Complete Hypnotism, Mesmerism, Mind-Reading and 
Spiritualism 
By A. Alpheus 


Written in 1903, just sixty years after the word ‘hypnotism’ was coined, this 
book explores the contemporary understanding of the nature, uses and 
dangers of the technique. Hypnotism has been practiced for many 
centuries, but it was in the mid-to-late nineteenth century that it became a 
particularly fashionable way to explore the human mind. Although 
understanding of the subject has evolved considerably over subsequent 
years, this book remains a fascinating insight into a technique once thought 
to be at the forefront of medical science. (Summary by Stuart Bell)
