Description

This short guide to phrenology by Lorenzo Niles Fowler and his daughter, defines the various faculties and concludes with an essay describing the procedure for finding certain organs on the surface of the skull. "Let us take, then, for our starting point the outer angle of the eye, and draw a line to the middle of the top of the ears, and Destructiveness is exactly under this point, and extends upward about half an inch above the top of the ears... When Secretiveness is small and Destructiveness is large, there will be a horizontal ridge extending forward and backward, more or less prominent, according to the size of this organ."
