Te Amsterdam: Johannes Allart, 1784. 1784 Physiognomy Essays DUTCH Lavater Illustrated Occult Sciences Psychology"If you wish to appear agreeable in society, you must consent to be taught many things which you know already." ― Johann Kaspar Lavater Johann Casper Lavater was an 18th-century philosopher who was well known for his essays on physiognomy. His beliefs and teachings on physiognomy did not always coincide with Zwinglian philosophies, but he is credited with being the first to introduce the idea that "physiognomy related to the specific character traits of individuals, rather than general types." (Baggerman)This rare 1784 second edition was published in Dutch and includes hundreds of in-text engravings throughout illustrating aspects of human traits. These illustrations are the key to this work's popularity. It remained popular even at the height of classic literature throughout Europe.Item number: #11267Price: $599LAVATER, Johann CasparOver de PhysiognomieTe Amsterdam: Johannes Allart, 1784.Details: · Collation: Complete with all pages; 4 volumeso Vol. I - XX, 357, [3]o Vol. II - VIII, 342o Vol. III - VI, 347, [1]o Vol. IV - [4], 435, [21]o Illustrated with hundreds of engravings throughout· References: Baggerman, Controlling Time; · Language: Dutch· Binding: Leather; secure· Size: ~8in X 5in (20cm x 13cm)Our Guarantee:Very Fast.
