AMERICAN PHRENOLOGICAL JOURNAL, New York, December, 1854  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.
Inside has a great article on: "Gold Coins of the United States" which includes 23 nice engravings of the various American gold coins, a few dating back to the 1790's. A great report for any coin collector.
