Garrison-Morton 580, Caillet 5796; Honeyman 1834; Dunnhaupt III, 2348, 34; Krivatsy 6404; Waller 10869; Wellcome III, p.396. FIRST EDITION of this selection from Kircher's voluminous works "which includes the first recorded experiment in hypnotism in animals" (Garrison-M 580). The range of subjects covered encompasses the entire spectrum of his researches, such as astronomy, optics (laterna magica), magnetism, air pressure, harmonics, sundials or waterpipes. Johann Stephan Kestler, the editor, was Kircher's pupil and as Kircher died the year this book was published, it is uncertain to what degree he was involved in its production.
