PREFACE.

THE rapidly growing interest in the philosophy and practice of mental healing in its various forms has created a desire to know more about the man to whose discoveries this new development is due, and to know wherein his teaching differed from the prevailing systems of thought. The facts concerning the discovery were published in 1887, in a pamphlet entitled "The True History of Mental Science," by Julius A. Dresser, in which quotations from Dr. Quimby's writings were then made public for the first time. By kind permission of those who have the manuscript in charge the author of the present volume is enabled to make further quotations from these writings, and also to republish a number of articles which were written for the press during the last years of Dr. Quimby's practice. In this way the facts are made to speak for themselves, and to show, without further comparison, the scope and scientific value of the parent philosophy.
