Description:

With a couple of facsimile pages. With frontispieces and many hundreds of plates accurately copied from the originals by Barlow. Rebound in modern full calf. Some browning and staining. This collection of Lavater's essays in English is one of the best editions of his most famous work. Lavater (1741-1801), a Swiss mystic, was the founder of the so-called science of physiognomy. These essays, which were significant to the history of psychiatry, include discussion of the external features of man, animal, and plant; anthropometry, emotions and anatomy, and its pathological changes, and their application in the arts. The fame of this book, which found enthusiastic admirers in France, England and Germany, rests to a great extent upon the handsome publication and artistic detail of the accompanying illustrations. Sold not subject to return. Bookseller Inventory #
