“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.” -Aristotle


This antique natural history chart would look fantastic in a variety of small settings: libraries, laboratories, cabinets of curiosity, attics, and studies! My line of natural history charts is created on high-quality cream paper from high-resolution copies of actual antique illustrations. They are not meant to be rolled or unrolled. Simply affix the chart as is to any surface, using nonpermanent adhesive wax.


"Phrenology was especially popular from about 1810 until 1840. It is now considered a pseudoscience. Phrenological thinking was, however, influential in 19th-century psychiatry and modern neuroscience...

...Phrenologists believed that the mind has a set of different mental faculties, with each particular faculty represented in a different area of the brain. These areas were said to be proportional to a person's propensities, and the importance of the given mental faculty. It was believed that the cranial bone conformed in order to accommodate the different sizes of these particular areas of the brain in different individuals, so that a person's capacity for a given personality trait could be determined simply by measuring the area of the skull that overlies the corresponding area of the brain.

As a type of theory of personality, phrenology can be considered to be an advance over the old medical theory of the four humours..."
