Comparative Physiognomy free pdf Excerpt from Comparative Physiognomy: Or Resemblances Between Men and Animals The word preface is an indication that a book, like its author, must have a face- and unless it be a misnomer, there is no reason why it should not be illustrated with faces. That it comes first and foremost it would be useless to observe, had not certain persons been inclined to put it in the background. We will slate frankly, at the outset, that this particular preface is intended to "face down" - not by "barefaced assertions," but by a presentation of faces and arguments - the unjust treatment to which the face has been subjected. Why should a periodical, that professes to be a "Journal" of Phrenology and of kindred sciences, look out at the back of its head whenever it takes a peep at Physiognomy? We know not, but humanity claims that the eyes in such a case should be set right. Wo address ourselves, therefore, to answering the objections contained in two articles on this subject in the "Phrenological Journal," both of them new-year's presents, for which we have reason to be thankful. The first formidable obstacle we meet with is this: "The naked skull of poor Yorick, notwithstanding its yawning eye-sockets and ghastly grin, presents the evidences of his former warmth of affection and his racy wit, although the signs of these emotions in the face are obliterated for ever." Is there, then, nothing left of the skull but the cranial portion? and does not Physiognomy claim that the character is indicated in the features of the face, as well as in the expressions?
