Darwin, C. (n.d.). The Expression of Emotion in Man and Animals. Retrieved from http://cn.ebooklibrary.org/

INTRODUCTION. MANY works have been written on Expression, but a greater number on Physiognomy, that is, on the recognition of character through the study of the permanent form of the features. With this latter subject I am not here concerned. The older treatises, [1] which I have consulted, have been of little or no service to me. The famous `Conferences' [2] of the painter Le Brun, published in 1667, is the best known ancient work, and contains some good remarks. Another somewhat old essay, namely, the `Discours,' delivered 1774-1782, by the well-known Dutch anatomist Camper, [3] can hardly be considered as having made any marked advance in the subject. The following works, on the contrary, deserve the fullest consideration.
