Essays on physiognomy: calculated to extend the knowledge and the love of mankind
Essays on physiognomy: calculated to extend the knowledge and the love of mankind, H. D. Symonds, 1797, 4 volumes, 8vo, xv, 243 pp. & iv, 186 pp. & 201 pp. & xiv, 334 pp. respectively, f.e.p. of volume 3 excised, edges of boards, end caps of all 4 volumes as well as the front joints of volumes 1 & 4, the rear joint of volume 2 and the inner hinges of volume 3 all expertly repaired, else tight vg copies in early 19th bindings of cloth spine and marbled boards with marbled end-papers and with some faint staining to the upper margins of the last 23 leaves in volume 4. Profusely illustrated with hundreds of engravings. The dubious beginnings of some elements of both psychology and psychiatry may indeed reside within these volumes.
