Illustrations of phrenology; being a selection of articles from the Edinburgh phrenological journal, and the Transactions of the Edinburg phrenological society. With twenty-six wood cuts by George Henry Calvert( Book )

10 editions published between 1832 and 2012 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The editor of the present volume has been induced to prepare it, from a belief that a selection of articles from the Edinburg Phrenological Journal and the Transactions of the Phrenological Society of Edinburg, would be an acceptable addition to the works on Phrenology already in the hands of the American public. The rapid progress which the science has made, within a few years, in Europe; the sanction of many of the most distinguished European Savans to its truth and importance; the strong advocacy lately given it in our own country in the medical profession; and the increased and growing interest with which the subject is generally viewed among us, recommend the present as a suitable moment for issuing such a volume. The conviction the editor entertains of the vast importance of the Phrenological discoveries, and of the beneficial results to be produced by a diffusion of a knowledge of them, has entered largely into his motive to undertake the task. In making the selections, those articles have been taken which contain evidence, derived directly from nature, of the truth of the phrenological positions. The editor thought that a collection of the most striking of the practical cases, reported in the Journal, would form a volume which would give satisfaction to the American Phrenologists, and at the same time, present the subject in a strong light to those who are not at all, or only partially, acquainted with the principles and pretensions of Phrenology. The means through which the discoveries were originally made, and then confirmed, viz: the observation of extreme cases in the manifestation of mental qualities and in the development of the brain, and the remarking, in all such cases, of the connexion between the mind and the brain; --this same means is the most efficient for teaching to others the truths thus discovered, and of producing an effectual impression of the reality and solidity of the basis on which the whole doctrine rests."
