Artificial Deformity of the Skull [Les déformations artificielles du crâne en France]. (Bull. Soc. d'Anth. de Paris, 1902, fasc. 2.) Delisle, F.

  • Havelock Ellis
Extract

Dr. Delisle has for many years been an authority on this subject, and in the present monograph he treats it in a more exhaustive manner than he has hitherto done, and also presents a map showing the distribution of deformity in the various departments of France. Although the practice is slowly dying out, it still persists to a surprising extent, and may be found, the author remarks, in many Parisians of intellectual distinction. It is least prevalent in the eastern third of France. The author concludes that it shows no tendency to become hereditarily impressed on the race, and that there is no sufficient evidence to support the belief that any arrest of physical or mental development is caused by the practice, or that the individuals subjected to it show any unusual tendency to insanity.
