Punch,  61 (1871), 187.

Phrenological Triumph



News-Commentary, Review



    A brief review of an unidentified new book on phrenology. Reproduces the book's phrenological interpretation of Kate J Bateman, a 'distinguished and delightful' actress much admired by Mr Punch. Agrees with the interpretation but is mystified by discussion of an organ of 'Eventuality'. Impressed that a phrenologist, who knows nothing of the actress, 'should be able to hit out a character so accurately'.
