Caption: Hypnosis demonstration. 19th-century artwork of a hypnotist inducing hypnosis in a woman on a stage in front of a watching audience. Hypnotism in the 19th century was developed by the Scottish surgeon James Braid (1795-1860). Moving away from the earlier occult work by the German physician Franz Mesmer, Braid wrote and published scientific and medical works on hypnotism. This early work by Braid and others, in Manchester, London and Paris, influenced later practitioners, especially in France. Artwork from the first volume (first period of 1888) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
