From the Jacket:

This is the first authentic book even produced on the science of Palm Reading. It comprises all available knowledge of Palmistry in the form of a dictionary. This Encyclopaedia is divided into three alphabetical indices; General Palmistry, Vocational Guidance, and Medical Palmistry Suitable illustrations give added weight to this researched volume. However, the author would like to caution the readers that they should use their discretion regarding the meaning attached to the signs and lines on the hand in this work lest it have an adverse effect on any individual and damage his career or life due to wrong interpretation. The study of palmistry is based on a combination of signs and no sign should be interpreted independently. This is only a reference book and not the final verdict.

The author deserves to be congratulated for coming out with this Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Palmistry. It is the product of his extensive experience and years of teaching and research. This volume will prove very useful to every practicing palmist.
