AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A Munich doctor recounts a case of a wealthy and beautiful woman who spent three days in a death house in a fit of catalepsy. Only signals of life from 'the signalling instrument' and the narrator's attention to its causes saved her from burial. Germanic combination of reason and superstition. (PB)
