RATIONALE OF CRIME
First published in 1841, and later reprinted in 1973. Written by Eliza Farnham, the matron of the New York state prison for women at Sing Sing, this treatise is supplemented by a series of cranial drawings, and is still today (1973) one of the best expositions of the attempt made by some 19th century prison reformers to use phrenology.
