A newspaper with a focus on phrenology...



Item # 596380

January 1, 1862

BROUGHTON'S MONTHLY PLANET READER AND ASTROLOGICAL JOURNAL, Philadelphia, Jan., 1862 

* Uncommon title - General George McClellan
* Astrology - Horoscope


A fascinating and very unusual newspaper of small-size themed on predicting what would happen in the future as well as astrology and phrenology. The "science" of phrenology believed that a person's intelligence & personality were a factor of the shape of their skull.
The ftpg. has: "The Nativity of Gen. George B. McClellan" which is interesting to read from an historical perspective. Most of pages 2 & 3 are taken up with: "Astrology". The back page has: "A Singular Prophecy" which concerns Nostradamus' prediction that: "...a great quarrel & contest will arise in a country beyond the seas...The war will not cease for four years..." and more. Also: "The Fate of the Nation for the Winter Quarter of 1862".
Four pages, 5 3/4 by 9 inches, light toning, very nice condition.

Discounted by 50% (as shown) through November 16, 2017!
