9781333374402: The Physical Characters of the Indians of Southern Mexico (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Physical Characters of the Indians of Southern Mexico
We need not comment at length upon the descriptive characters of the nose, lip, and ear. We may merely remark that the ears are of medium size and rather uniform. And that they rarely present those stigmata of degeneracy of which so much study has been made. They are usually well shaped and project but little from the head. The lobe is usually of fair size and well formed. Though it is usually more or less attached.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Physical Characters of the Indians of Southern Mexico Our second method of investigation was by photography. As the 125 subjects passed through our hands for measurement, we selected those which seemed to best present the tribal type for photographing. Usually none were selected until enough subjects had been measured and examined for a clear idea of the type to be present in our mind. Front and side views were made of each person photographed. Approxi mately six hundred negatives of this sort were taken. A considerable selection from these has already been published, under the title Indians of Southern Mexico: an Ethnographic Album. Besides portraits to show the physical types, this work con tains many views of villages, buildings, groups, industries, etc., etc. The second and final volume of this album is now ready for the engraver. From among the portrait negatives we have selected sixty of the most characteristic; they represent twenty-three males and seven females, front and side view of each; the twenty-three males included one representative of each tribe. From these negatives a series of life-size platinum paper prints has been made, of the exact size of life, for museum use. Only fifty sets of these most life-like portraits are to be published. The reduced half-tone engravings with which this paper is illustrated were made from these same negatives. Five busts were to be made in each tribe. Molds were made directly upon the subject, and a first (pattern) bust was run before we left the town where the investiga tion was going on. The mold was chipped away and the bust carried with us. After returning home these busts were placed, together with the photographs of the same subjects, in the hands of a competent and conscientious artist, who carefully repaired breakages or imperfections, opened the eyes, and put on the hair. The series of busts absolutely made overran one hundred, but it has been reduced to exactly one hundred by eliminating the less desirable. All the tribes are represented in this series by from two to five subjects. Four sets only of these busts are to be run, and it is expected that they will be located in as many different countries.
