BEAN, ROBERT BENNETT. - The Racial Anatomy of the Philippine Islanders introducing new methods of anthropology .. with a classification of human ears and a scheme for the heredity of anatomical characters in man.

Philadelphia &c, Lippincott 1910. Octavo publisher's cloth; 236pp, photo illustrations, diagrams in the text. Ex Parliamentary Library with their gilt crest on front board and stamp on the title but a rather good copy. ¶ This is Bean's first book - he had published a few papers before this - drawn from three years in the Philippines. Bean and his work is still labelled as 'distinguished'. He certainly wasn't the only anthropologist of his generation to focus on measuring the heads of the darker races - which he did for decades after this - but nowhere can I find an incredulous note that this book proposes the classification of race by ears.
