x pp178 The Eugenics' Society's copy of their founder's anthropometric diary which was intended to allow an individual to keep personal records of scientific value. Tan cloth with red lettering, lacking red ties; oval stamp of the Eugenics Society's Library on the front free endpaper and a library shelfmark written above in ink; stamp of the Wellcome Institute Library on the verso of the title page (the Wellcome holds the Eugenics Society's archive and retains another copy of this second edition also derived from the Eugenics Society). The printed pages intended for use by the book's owner have not been filled in though Galton's intention was for a comprehensive data record of a life to be entered including height and weight over a lifetime, photographs at all ages, tests of vision and so on. The book was the work of a committee, and Galton credits his collaborator Dr. Mahomed for much of the hard work in putting it together. This edition of 1902 was heavily revised by Galton.
