Carolus den Blanken                                  







In 1867, Librairie d'Amyot, Paris published a book entitled 'Les Reves et les Moyens de les diriger: Observations Pratiques', written by the French Marquis d'Hervey de Saint-Denys*.  It is the first serious book on dreamprocesses, and the ability to be conscious during dreaming is also described.  By lack of an integral English translation of this remarkable work, I decided to do it myself, and published it as a free of charge PDF-file in 2016. I am however not a professional translator, and nor the French nor the English language is my native one. So there were flaws and rough edges... The mentioned PDF-file is no longer available. You can order an enhanced kindle E-book version of it , edited by Moreh Derekh, from Inner Garden Press at

* See for detailed information the article 'Historical View Saint-Denys'.
