1/1, January 2, 1897-19/21-22, May 29, 1915.

The journal was restarted after being suspended for a time during World War I and ceased with vol. 22 in 1918. 6 Marks a year, 8 pp, in two columns; half page of advertisements. Includes as a supplement Nachrichten fur die Mitglieder der Deutschen Graphologischen Gesellschaft. In 1899 the title was changed to include somnambulism and magnetism, and in June, 1915, changed again, this time to the simpler Zeitschrift fur Seelenleben, but the alteration availed little since that journal folded its doors on Christmas 1915. Feilgenhauer was the founder of the Gesellschaft fur wissenschaftliche Psychologie and of the Spiritistische Vereinigung "Psyche" in Cologne. The journal divided its contents into scientific papers; spiritualism, Theosophy, etc.; seances and experiments; mediums' communications; psychical research; clippings from the press; etc., and also published articles by many of the leading psychical researchers of the time. The issue for November 11, 1905, has a lengthy letter from the aged G. von Langsdorff telling of being lured to travel from Germany to the Grail-Order Colony being organized by Parsival Braun on the White River in northern Arkansas (the site of other fraudulent enterprises) and his disillusionment: “Dr. phil. P. Braun und seine Gral-Orden-kolonie als grosster Schindel entlarvt.” osterreichischer Bibliothekenverbund; Emory University; Harvard University; University of Minnesota; Bayerische Staatsbibliothek; ZDB: Freiburg Inst Grenzgeb Psycho; Munchen BSB; Augsburg UB; Berlin SBB Haus Potsdamer Str; Wolfenbuttel HAugB; Detmold LB; Leipzig DNB; Leipzig UB.
