Mystic London: or, Phases of Occult Life in the Metropolis – Charles Maurice Davies, 1875:

Handling me from head to foot, much as a fancier  does a prize ox at Smithfield, Mr. Burns found the  life power good, and the muscles well nourished, the  working faculties being in a high state of activity.  The head – I blushed to hear – measured one inch  beyond the average of a man of my size, and the  cerebral faculties were harmoniously organized. I  had large perceptive powers; and my human nature  (wherever that may be located) was full, as was also  firmness. The thinking sphere was good. I should  have made, Mr. Burns informed me, a good sculptor  or artist.
