'A cheerful countenance and a countenance of sorrow'

Illustration of a face showing an expression happiness and a face showing sorrow. Image 1- This action suggests laughter. The buccinators carry the corners of the mouth farther back. The eyes are mostly shut. Image 2- The action illustrated is weeping. The corners of the mouth are drawn down, pulling up the under lip. The eye-lid almost covers the pupil. Parsons states; 'tears have their great use in human life; they are often the strongest and most persuasive solicitors for mercy.' Plate 5 from Human Physiognomy Explain'd: In the Crounian Lectures on Muscular Motion by James Parsons FRS (London, C. Davis, 1746). Inscribed: 'Tab .IV. p.72. I. Ps MD. del. J.Mynde sc.'

Original: engraving. 1746
