Frontispiece to Vol. III of the “Soul of Things; or, Psychometric Researches and Discoveries” by William Denton, Boston: 1874.
A book that came into my possession under mysterious circumstances. It’s a fascinating volume, I may scan more from it in the future if anyone’s interested (there’s a copy on the Internet Archive, but it’s missing its illustrations).
For more info, check out “Nature’s Secrets: or, Psychometric Researches”, also by Mr. Denton, London: 1863.
