Regular price $25.00 $0.00

Chicago: The Marlowe Company, (n. d.). Circa 1915. pp. 3 - 37, [3, blank]. Pale grey-green stapled wrappers printed in black. Light toning and wear to wrappers; short tear to rear wrapper and last few leaves near binding staple.

Short booklet on the medical uses of hypnotism and suggestion, interestingly not just for treatment of disease, but also in place of anasthesia during surgery, "for by its use no objectionable after effects are experienced as with cocaine, ether, chloroform, etc." and to help the "criminal classes ... overcome evil tendencies".

This edition the same as that in the Harry Houdini Collection at the Library of Congress, and apparently scarce: OCLC notes just for holdings, including the LOC.
