    Observes that Annie I Oppenheim's book Phreno-Physiognomy: Scientific Character-Reading From the Face will 'afford many readers an interesting subject for conversation and reflection. With this book as a kind of grammar-dictionary, you have subjects for study in every railway carriage and at every dinner table, and when in a public meeting the speeches become dull you can endlessly diversify the interest by endeavouring to interpret the faces of the hearers'.
