From the Inside Flap

The Language of the Hand
A brand-new edition of the classic work first published in 1894. Cheiro was a renowned palmist whose world travels gained attention in the press and whose palm readings for the rich and famous of his day, including Mark Twain, elicited words of praise. In this unique book are methods for reading personalities, recognizing astrological links, and prognostication, along with drawings of hands showing structural types and lines. A series of photographic hand prints taken directly from the famous people Cheiro read for, such as Sara Bernhardt, is also included.

I read this book over 34 years ago, when "the new age" was not yet mainstream. When books of palmistry, astrology and other esoteric subjects were found in perhaps only one bookstore and called "Occult."
A renewed interest in the subject of palmistry recently prompted me to look for this work by Cheiro. I was delighted to see that indeed it had been reprinted. And even more delighted to read the personal thoughts of Cheiro which surprisingly mirror many of my own - so many years later.
For serious students of palmistry I feel this book is a must and for those simply interested in the subject as yet another look into the mysteries of life, they will not be disappointed by this easy to understand look at a very poignant subject.
