An apprentice of Franz Joseph Gall, Spurzheim is often credited for popularizing phrenology. The famous works of Johann Gaspar Spurzheim (1776-1832) present his (from studies with Gall) discoveries and techniques in the anatomy of the brain. Translated from the unpublished French manuscript by R. Willis.
