The "science" of phrenology had its own publication...



Item # 583010

June 1, 1866

AMERICAN PHRENOLOGICAL JOURNAL, & LIFE ILLUSTRATED, New York, June, 1866 

* Phrenology Theory

Phrenology is a theory stating that the personality traits of a person can be derived from the shape of the skull. Although holding no validity today, it was a popular science in the mid-19th century and this periodical focused on it.
The front page has a portrait of: "Solomon Foot", his biography carrying over to take most of page 2. Other personages inside this issue with phrenological considerations include "Jenny Lind," "Constance Emily Kent," "Nelson Sizer," "Pope Alexander VI," "Aaron Bull," and "Thomas Jefferson". The back page shows a: "Group of Moquis Indians" with some text on them.

The issue is complete in 32 pages, 9 1/4 by 11 1/2 inches, and is in very nice condition.
