1S.M. Part I. By the Rev. S. R. MAITLAND, D.D. F.R.: F.S.A. Sometime Librarian to the late Archbishop of Canterbury, and Keeper of the MSS. at Lambeth.

“One of the most valuable and interesting pamphlets we ever read." - Morning Herald.

“This publication, which promises to be the commencement of a larver work. will well repay serious perusal." - Ir. Eccl. Journ.

"A small pamphlet in which he throws a startling light on the practices of modern Mesmerism." - Nottingham Journal.

“Dr. Maitland, we consider, has here brought Mesnerism to the touchstone of truth,' to the test of the standard of right or wrong. We thank him for this first instalment of his inquiry, and hope that he will not long delay, the remaining portions." - London Medical Gazette.

“The Enquiries are extremely curious, we should indeed say important. That relating to the Witch of Endor is one of the most successful we ever read. We cannot enter into particulars in this brief notice, but we would strongly recommend the pamphlet even to those who care nothing about Mesmerisin, or angry (for it has come to this at last) with the subject."- Dublin Evening Post.

"We recommend its general perusal as being really, an endeavour,

by one whose position gives him the best facilities, to ascertain the genuine character of Mesmerism, which is so much dispu:ed." - Woolmer's Exeter

Gazette. "Dr. Maitland has bestowed & vast deal o attention on the subject for many years past, and the present pamphlet is in part the result of his thoughts and inquiries. There is a good deal in it which we should have been glad to quote .... but we content ourselves with referring our readers to the pamphlet itself.” Brit. Mag.
