Text Appearing After Image:
MR, CRABBE. FANCY PORTRAITS. 193 Author of Sayings and Doings—or the lines and angles inthe honest face of Izaak Walton. It is gratified in dwell-ing on the repulsive features of a Newgate ordinary; andwould be disappointed to miss the seraphic expression onthe Author of the Angel of the World. The Old Baileyjurymen are physiognomists to a fault; and if a rope cantransform a malefactor into an Adonis, a hard gallows faceas often brings the malefactor to the rope. A low foreheadis enough to bring down its head to the dust. A well-favoured man meets with good countenance ; but whenpeople are plain and hard-featured (like the poor, for in-stance,) we grind their faces; an expression, I am con-vinced, that refers to physiognomical theory. For my part, I confess a sympathy with the commonfailing. I take likings and dislikings, as some play music,—at sight. The polar attractions and repulsions insistedon by the phrenologist, affect me not; but I am not proofagainst a pleasant or villain
