Phrenology is a pseudoscience involving measuring bumps on the skull in order to predict mental faculties and personality traits. First published in 1899, this volume contains a collection of vintage essays and articles related to phrenology written by various authors and practitioners of the time. Contents include: "What Phrenology Is, by G. E. O'Dell", "The Phrenological Faculties: Their Use and Abuse, by S. E. O'Dell", "Character Sketches", "On Matrimonial Selection", "Child Life", "Mental Gravitation", "Mental Vitality", "A Theory of the Soul", "A Theory of Punishment", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on phrenology.
