"Physiognomonie. The secrets of the individual’s character as found in his face."
Though “physiognomonie” was a hot topic (and book title buzz word) in France in the 18th and 19th centuries, no book by this specific title has been found. It should be noted, however, that the subtitle of this presumably nonexistent work repeats an allusion to the lines from Macbeth (“There’s no art to find the mind’s construction in the face….”; see bookmark note related to page 142 of this edition) shortly before Something Wicked repeats the lines from that play that are the source of its title.
