Sir Charles Bell (1774-1842) was a Scottish surgeon, anatomist, neurologist and philosophical theologian. The present work, one of many from Sir Charles, was first published in 1806 as Essays on The Anatomy of Expression in Painting. Bell's studies on emotional expression, flawed though they were, played a catalytic role in the development of Darwin's considerations of the origins of human emotional life; and Darwin very much agreed with Bell's emphasis on the expressive role of the muscles of respiration. Darwin detailed these opinions in his The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals (1872), Note: heavier parcel, extra shipping will be required.
