The Study Of Palmistry For Professional Purpose (English)
It is the purpose of Palmistry to teach you how to conquer the ancient art of divination by means of stated rules and not by intuition. These rules work accurately at all times and under all circumstances, while intuition comes and goes at its own sweet will, under the influence of some momentary excitement which develops, in very rare occasions, a state of true clairvoyance, never to be fully depended on.
Those fixed laws, without which no science is worthy any serious attention, have been formulated, in this XIX. Century, by two Men, starting from opposite poles, but meeting on a common ground of conscientious investigation; these men were Captain D'Arpentigny and myself The former became the creator of this ingenious and startlingly accurate system that includes, under the name of Chirognomy, all such observations as relate to the outward physiognomy of the hand, its shape, its finger tips, etc., without paying any attention to the lines or signs written on the palm. This added branch of a science as old as the world now forms part and parcel of Palmistry and is almost unrivaled in its precise revelations concerning the disposition and tendencies of body and mind: No actual events, past or future, however, does it prognosticate, while its elder sister, Chirognomy , all such observations as relate to the outward Physiognomy of the hand, its shape, its finger trips, etc, without paying any attention to the lines or signs written on the palm.
