Prima edizione. L’autore espone in forma epistolare, indirizzandosi a Ernst Gottfried Baldinger, le teorie del magnetismo animale dal punto di vista della loro efficacia terapeutica.

This collection of letters is one of the earliest German works that critically examines the nature of animal magnetism.”
