I have been trying to find a copy of Broca's Tableau Chromatique de la Peau and have been unable to. Did you take these pictures yourself? And if not, where did they come from? I have the text of "Instructions générales pour les récherches anthropologiques à faire sur le vivant" but cannot find the tables themselves. Thanks for any information you can share.

Hello, Christina.
I have scanned these pictures from the following Italian scientific magazine:
"Sfera 27 - Identità e Diversità - Editrice Sigma-Tau, 1992"
From what I read in the images credits, the copy of this book used for the acquisition, comes from the National Central Library of Rome.
Have a nice day,
Janas.

Thanks very much! Your blog was the only place I have seen these images. Thanks for posting them. I'll credit you in the book I'm writing :-) Sea People: The Puzzle of Polynesia, hopefully out in 2017. Thanks again.
Christina
