About This Item

8vo (21 x 13,5 cm). 149, [1 blank] pp. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Untrimmed. In fair condition. The wrappers tattered, front wrapper and first three leaves lack a portion in the upper right corner, stained and foxed.

First edition of Bergasse's pamphlet passionately defending Franz Mesmer.

Nicolas Bergasse (1750-1832), Lyonese lawyer, politician and philosopher, was a disciple of Mersmer and helped him found the Society of Harmony of Paris.

"Bergasse delivered lectures to the members of the Paris Society, and these lectures were distilled into the content of the present book. Bergasse and Mesmer had their disagreements and although in Considérations Bergasse vigorously defends Mesmer against all attacks, divergences of doctrine do nevertheless appear. Within a year after the publication of the book, Mesmer and Bergasse publicly ended their association" (Crabtree).

Caillet 979; Crabtree 36.
