This extensive analytic documentation of hypnotism and its theories appears to precede Orton's popular and famous Hypnotism Made Practical. Orton collaborated on CouÃÆ'ƒÂ©'s 1924 book, Conscious Auto-Suggestion and wrote ÃÆ'ĉۡmile CouÃÆ'ƒÂ©: The Man and His Work. London: The Francis Mott Company, 1935. His insights on the history and principles of hypnotism are deep. He outlines the peer review he sought on its contents. Book I - THE POSITION with chapters entitled: Introduction, Historical Retrospect and Weeding; Book II STEPPING STONES, with chapters enitled: Mind and Matter, the Background to (corrected to of) Consciousness, Suggestion and Isolation; Book III THE NATURE OF HYPNOTISM, with chapters titled: My Hypnothesis, An Analysis of Hypnotic Processes and Further Corroborative Considerations; Book IV MORE HYPNOTIC FACTS AND HINTS: Practical Hints, The Management of Hypnosis, Hynotic Phenomena particularly as regards Therapeutics and Surgery; Book V HYPNOTISM AND EDUCATION with broad application including memory and voice culture which were subjects of Orton's other books; and Book VI FANCIES AND FACTS: Objections and Concluding Observations. It is unclear how much of this material was included in Practical Hypnosis. His collaboration with Coues speaks to the importance of his perspectives and advocacy, on the cusp of the permanent victory of anesthesia over hypnosis in medicine.
