Summary
  • Pt. 1. Introductory and historical -- Pt. 2. Practical utilities -- Pt. 3. The new philosophy and religion -- Appendix
  • "This volume has been somewhat hastily prepared, to fulfil the promise recently made to the public of a Manual of Psychometry--a work to introduce the subject to the general reader--not an elaborate memoir for scientists, which need not be offered until it is called for. As this volume contains the reports of many psychometric experiments with Mrs. B., I would state in advance that all such experiments which I report are as pure and true an illustration of Psychometry as possible--an accurate report of mental impressions as they arose, recorded as they were spoken deliberately. The mind of the psychometer in my experiments is always carefully guarded from all impressions but those which come from an invisible source by contact, without knowing what is the object or person to be described, which must be carefully concealed to insure the purity of the result. Questions are never of a leading character, being only used to direct attention to the matters that need description. The reports are as careful and faithful as I could possibly make them, but most of them are imperfect illustrations of her psychometric intuition, given often when fatigued by her daily duties"--Preface.
