The Zoist Journal - 13 volumes - I have read 10 - is a gold mine of information, stories, bios, controversy on Magnetism aka Mesmerism and Phrenology a la Gall. Edited and contributed to a large degree by Dr. John Elliotson, it explains much of the struggles these two threatening disciplines brought to England in the middle of the 19th century. I find it difficult to keep up with the Phrenology, but the Mesmerism stories keep my interest. There is also much related to education, criminal justice of the time and treatment or lack of treatment of insanity.
