Periodical: Zeitschrift fur Phrenologie

Summary:  From Pat Deveney's database:

Zeitschrift fur Phrenologie.
Unter Mitwirkung vieler Gelehrten.
1843-1845 Quarterly (?) (1 volume a year, divided into 4 undated issues, each with 4 parts)
Heidelberg, Germany. Language: German. Publisher: Karl Gross. Editor: Gustav von Struve and Eduard Hirschfeld; then Struve alone.
1/1, 1843-1845. 36 Kroner.

This was a standard phrenological journal, patterned on and to a considerable extent derived from the Phrenological Journal and Miscellany of Edinburgh, including, among others, a long essay by William Gregory on a case of seeing visions. The first issue carried a letter from G. Combe, the editor of the Scottish journal, instructing Struve on starting a German Phrenological Society and publishing a journal on the subject. Struve (1805-1870) was a Bavarian lawyer, historian and polymath. The journal regularly featured examinations of the "forehead development" of then-notable figures.
