In the medical section of our rare books collection is a wonderful little book titled The Illustrated Practical Mesmerist, Curative and Scientific, 3rd edition by William Davey.

On the hunt to create a spooky gif, our student worker, Chad, found this great illustration. Despite being Mesmerized, the patient did feel a bit of pain.
