Previous owner's signature and date on the first two blank pages. A fascinating and detailed account of how different occult phenomena / delusions can be explained through the science of phrenology, or phreno-physiology.The book then provides a complete guide for the application of phrenology to diagnose the susceptibility of occult delusions and to predict future behaviors and personality characteristics of an individual. Please see below for more information on Grimes, his work, his impact and studies on. James Stanley Grimes (1807 - 1903). In 1832, Johann Gaspar Spurzheim toured the United States to promote the practice of phrenology. Impressed by Spurzheims field of knowledge, he decided to study phrenology himself. In 1839, Stanley Grimes published A New System of Phrenology where he proposed a classification system that established three types of cerebral organs: ipseal, social, and intellectual. In a later book, he postulated that there was a direct connection between phrenology and geology, or between brain structure and geological changes. Likewise, he proposed a theory of evolution based on natural selection, which came out eight years before Charles Darwins On the origin of species. During the second half of the 19th century, J. Stanley Grimes published two additional books on phreno-physiology: The Mysteries of Human Nature Explained by a New System of Nervous Physiology (1857) and The Mysteries of the Head and the Heart Explained (1875).
