Enter the world of phrenology and grace your shelves with this cereamic reproduction of a L. N. Fowler Phrenology Head!  In a cracle glaze finish, this head will guide you through the phrenological association points on the skull.


Lorenzo Niles Fowler (1811-96) was the leading American phrenologist. Working with his brother, Fowler promoted phrenology into a popular craze and traveled the country giving lectures and performing cranial readings.

Similar lectures were held in Concord and Boston, Massacusetts, and attended by Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. 


American writer Walt Whitman was enthralled with the topic and had a phrenology reading done of his own head. To read more about Whitman and Phrenology, visit this the Walt Whitman archieve site here:
