Description:


Galton invented the term eugenics and set down many of his observations and conclusions in this book which covers a variety of psychological phenomena and their subsequent measurement. It discusses the variety of human nature, physical features, bodily qualities, emotions, psychology, anthropometric registers, character, criminals, gregarious and slavish instincts, intellectual differences, mental imagery, number forms, the history of twins, and selection and race, among others. He also advocated a system of rewards for high quality families to have more children to encourage the better element of society to grow in size.

This edition is an exact copy of the original and contains all the original illustrations.
 
________________________________________________
 
Sir Francis Galton, (1822–1911) was an English polymath, psychologist, anthropologist, eugenicist, tropical explorer, geographer, inventor, meteorologist, proto-geneticist, psychometrician, and statistician. He was knighted in 1909. He produced over 340 papers and books, and created the statistical concept of correlation and widely promoted regression toward the mean. He was the first to apply statistical methods to the study of human differences and inheritance of intelligence, and introduced the use of questionnaires and surveys for collecting data on human communities. He was a pioneer in eugenics, coining that term and the phrase "nature versus nurture".
