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.

Also inside: "A Great Ghost Hoax" & the bkpg. has: "The Nativity of William H. Seward". Much more as well.
Four pages, 5 3/4 by 9 inches, nice condition.
