The Macrocosm and Microcosm by William Fishbough [with] Fascination or the Philosophy of Charming ( Two volumes in one: Single Volume edition ).

New York, NY: Fowler & Wells, ND (ca. 1885 ). First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Thick octavo. 260pp. + 176pp. ( + ivpp. ads). Modern black binder's cloth, gilt-lettering on spine, (misspelling Fishbough's name). Frontispiece to Newman's work, which also has some B&W Ills. These two works were originally issued as individual volumes; and were then issued thus as a single-volume, it being Vol. I (complete in itself) of the "Library of Mesmerism and Psychology." Each of the two books retained its original title-page and pagination. The full title of Fishbough's work is "The Macrocosm and Microcosm; Or, the Universe Without and the Universe Within: Being an Unfolding of the Plan of Creation and the Correspondence of Truths, Both in the World of Sense and the World of the Soul. Part I the Macrocosm; Or, the Universe Without" (no part II appears to have been issued). It appears to be largely on unseen forces in the physical world: magnetism, etc and cosmology, although the author seems to propose an alternative to Darwinism - "The Doctrine of Progressive Development." Newman's "Fascination or the Philosophy of Charming Illustrating The Principles of Life in Connection with Spirit and Matter" was a well-known nineteenth century work on Mesmerism, hypnosis, Spiritual therapeutics etc. Somewhat tightly rebound in late twentieth century heavy black binder's. Binding fine, small tear to title-page of Fishbough's work, title and frontis of Newman's a little darkened. Pages a little toned, a touch of pale foxing to the first few leaves. Still overall VG+ in a solid, if uninspiring binding. Item #69633
