Part II on Phrenology brings us to A Phrenological Dictionary of 19th Century Americans, 1982 (WorldCat), and The Phrenological Journal, Vols. 43-44, 1866-67 (WorldCat). Phrenological Journal was a crazy magazine that had all kinds of random stuff in it. The only things phrenological were the individual case studies and the “teachings” on morality.

Details like these make me happy when I find them in books.
