Magnetiseur Spiritualiste, Le.
Cahagnet discusses the founding of this journal in his The Celestial Telegraph: Or, Secrets of the Life to Come, Revealed through Magnetism (New York: J.S. Redfield, Clinton Hall, 1851), 225-226. It was the organ of his Societe des Magnetiseurs Spiritualistes de Paris which featured the lucid revelations of Adele Maginot about the spirits of the dead and their universe—which bore a marked Swedenborgian tinge—as well as studies of magnetic healing, dreams, homeopathy, apparitions, magic mirrors, immortality of the soul, ecstasy, somnambulism, etc. The title of the journal marks an early example of the process in which "spiritualism" and its cognates changed from a generic emphasis on the spiritual nature of man to the a specific focus on communication with the dead.
