Erste Ausgabe. - Hirsch-H. III, 471; Du Prel 699; Ackermann II, 234: "Sehr selten und gesucht." - Seltenes Werk des Hauptvertreters der naturphilosophischen Richtung in der Medizin. - "Kieser was a strong supporter of animal magnetism and heavily involved in investigating the clairvoyant qualities of magnetic somnambulists. He called the essential agent of animal magnetism `telluric power`, associating animal magnetism with a generalized force. In this lengthy and important work, he describes mineral, vegetable, and animal magnetism, attempting to provide a foundation in physics for animal magnetic phenomena. Kieser says that sleep is a general expression of magnetic life and that somnambulism is a natural product of the application of animal magnetic techniques. In describing magnetic healing, he places some emphasis on the power of belief as supplementary to the healing power of animal magnetism itself. The second volume contains a history of animal magnetism and a good bibliography" (Crabtree 310). - Etwas berieben und leicht bestoßen.
