Today ppl know more about palmistry thru cheiro writings but v few ppl know that it was D Arpenteginy from France who made Palmistry famous again. He was a french writer who after extensive research on ancient books and doing his experiments on thousands of ppl hands wrote this book.
Everyone who has read palmistry know that there is Division of hands in Seven Types of Hands which is most popular Division on Hands was introduced by D Arpentiginy from France.
Instead of writing something about this great book by St Germain i am putting his preface here for u so that u know how this book was written.
Among the tens of thousands orf American readers who have given such a pleasant welcome to my syndicate articles and to my elementary work entitled PRACTICAL PALMISTRY.” a large number have done me the honor of communicating with me with a view of increasing their knowledge of this most fascinating science. Many have even visited Chicago and requested me to give them personal and exhaustive instruction in Palmistry. I finally decided, a year ago, to comply with these solicitations, and have devoted a few hours, every day, to the teaching of the science rendered famous in this XIX. Century by the splendidly successful efforts of Desbarrolles and d”Arpentigny. Class after class attended my studio and received favorably whatever conscientious instruction my twenty-nine years of chi-rosophic studies entitled me to give them. Typewritten copies of these lessons were distributed to the pupils, and gradually modified so as to suit almost any fair grade of intellect. They have now grown to the size of a two-volume manual, and having stood well the test of actual and widely approved teaching, they are pre-sented to the public at large with large additions, modifications and improvements and with over 1,100 illustrations, especially drawn for this work.
As a patient and painstaking instructor – and I may claim that much without fear of contradiction – I have aimed at the following results, which I failed to see realized in any book on Palmistry published to this day:
1. Clearness and absence of useless theorizing.
2. System and thoroughly logical classification.
3. Completeness. In this respect I may be allowed to state that the present book contains between two and ten times more reliable observations than any work ever published in the English tongue.
For instance, in the two largest books, of comparatively recent date, devoted to chirosophy or to the language of the hand, I find that, concerning the Line of Life and the Lines of Influence that proceed from it, one of these works contains 69 observations and the other 49. In this book, the same subject is is treated in over 200 observations, all of the first importance and all illustrated by means of one separate illustration for each indication.
To this wealth of technical information I have added hundreds of actual cases from life, chosen from the untranslated works of Desbarrolles and others, or from my own stock of experiences.
An illustration accompanies each of these most interesting facts, completing the theory as fast as it is developed through the book. I soon found that in no other way can the pupil’s mind be brought to grasp the intricacies of this most minute and ever varied study.
The Laws of Scientific Hand Reading was first published in 1900 and has been out of print since 1960. This classic work, complete with more than 800 illustrations.William. G. Benham made a lifelong study of hand analysis and this famous book became the standard in its field. In 1900, Mr. Benham wrote, “No help was found from professionals, for nearly all proved to be ignorant, unlettered, and trying solely to gain money, without any effort in the direction of scientific investigation. During this time the word Palmistry was so buried under a mass of public disapproval that a self-respecting person dared not say that he was even interested in it. Fully persuaded that it had a scientific foundation, I set about to discover it”
I may here add that all of u who have read palmistry know that in hand reading all books of Palmistry start with the Mounts and then Shape of Hands, but very few of you may be knowing that most important work on the mounts of hands was done by Great Benham in his this book.
He came up a new theory in this book which i am sorry to say that very few ppl ever understood completely. Instead of basis of Hand type he said that in every human only one mount is very prominent around which we should study all his hand interpretations. Its a very advanced theory and i am happy that i have done some work in this which i will share in due time with the rest of the world.
5) chiromancy or The Science of Palmistry
This book was written by Henry Frith and Heron Allen. This book was published in 1883 from London and New York.
Heron Allen had a multiple personality, we know thru his biography that Beside Chiromancy, or the science of palmistry, (Routledge & Sons, London, 1883) He also wrote another book known as A Manual of Cheirosophy, (Ward, Lock, & Co., London, 1885) both of these books made his name in London Society. He read the palms and analysed the handwriting of various luminaries of the period, and was even asked to cast the horoscope of Oscar and Constance Wilde’s first son, Cyril. Towards the end of the 1880s he embarked on a three year lecture tour of America (his subject was palmistry).
6) Palmistry for All by Cheiro
I dont think i need to give any note on cheiro as he was and is the most popular writer at least in east on palmistry and many people only became palmist after reading only his books in my country.
