Andrew Jackson Davis (1826-1910), “the Poughkeepsie Seer," was an American spiritualist from New York who practiced mesmerism, clairvoyance, and magnetic healing. The Great Harmonia was one of several books Davis purportedly dictated while in trance. Interestingly, in later life Davis retired to Boston and opened a bookshop. The Great Harmonia stretched to at least four volumes, this being Vol. 1: The Physician, covering the origins of man and the philosophies of health, disease, sleep, death, psychology, and healing.
