Comments: Exposition of Mesmer's cosmic system by his chief French disciple. This work played an important role in the internal schism that weakened Mesmer's movement. Bergasse, who had founded the Society of Universal Harmony, which might be called the "Mesmerist church", began to develop his own ideas on animal magnetism which Mesmer would not tolerate. The book also contains some valuable information on the financial practices of Mesmer's organization. Caillet 979. Blake 42. Wellcome II 147.

I recently purchased a book from you, having searched via the internet. The book came yesterday and this note commends your service and quick response. I was impressed with the care taken to wrap the book with tissue paper and several layers of corrugated cardboard, as well as the speed with which you must have sent it out. It arrived only a week after the order, in spite of the Thanksgiving holiday. I thank you for the attention paid to the quality of my order and hope we will do more business. - Steve C.
