Combs was a major figure in the area of Phrenology during the Victorian Age. He was a founder of the first organization devoted to that "science", the Edinburgh Phrenological Society (EPS) in February 1820. He authored a number of books on the subject and toured the United States giving lectures on his findings. The title is the result of his two year stay and tour.
