Crabtree 425: “Aubin Gauthier was one of the more prolific and competent writers on animal magnetism in the nineteenth century. He had an historically oriented approach to the subject, and in this, his first book, he traces the precursors of animal magnetism in ancient medicine. He also presents a good summary of the theory and practice of animal magnetism in his own day.”.
