'A countenance of scorn and derision and a morose, envious countenance'

Illustration of a face showing scorn or derision and a face showing an expression of envy. Image 1- Parsons suggests that 'as soon as the mind suggests a contempt for persons or things [...] the first muscles that begin to act are [...] on one side only, whereby the side of the upper lip is pull'd up, so as to shew [sic] the teeth [...]'. Parsons also suggests an inclination to wrinkle the nose. Image 2- The act of frowning with a malicious grin. The brow is forced slowly downwards and inwards whilst the lids of the eyes are dragged up. The upper lip is drawn up on each side whilst the corners of the mouth droop downwards. Plate 4 from Human Physiognomy Explain'd: In the Crounian Lectures on Muscular Motion by James Parsons FRS (London, C. Davis, 1746). Inscribed: 'Tab .IV. p.64. I. Ps MD. del. J.Mynde sc.'

Original: engraving. 1746
