This was the longest lived phrenological journal and was the work of the Fowler Brothers, Orson Squire (1809-1887) and Lorenzo Niles (1811-1896) and Samuel Wells (1820-1875), and of their publishing house Fowler & Wells, which had an influence far beyond phrenology. The journal sought to expound a science of mind far beyond the rather narrow limits of phrenology proper, and carried regular contributions on clairvoyance and the like. NYPL.
