Manchester: Gustavus Cohen, 1889. In the annals of fad science, nothing approaches Phrenology. That the shape of one's head should determine one's character easily slipped into racism. For those of a pseudo-scientific bent, or just curiosity, Quercus offers this wonderful small guide, offering "upwards of 150 Illustrations and Diagrams by W,H. Roberts." First published in 1884, this is a Very Good (Plus) copy of a Later Printing. Published by the author. Attractive decorative red cloth binding, stamped in black and gilt. Clean text; 153 pages, with one page at the rear offering free consultations with the author. The pages are very bright and supple, offering the Reader an opportunity for improvement. The spine is a bit darkened; mild soiling, with a few areas of spotting (an unobtrusive pink colour). Laid-in is a 12-page booklet from a contemporary publisher of books on the subject; the booklet is in Fine condition. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.. Decorative Cloth. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. Illus. by W.H. Roberts. First Edition.
