Book of The Hand: An Illustrated History Of Palmistry - Fred Gettings1972

Amazon Synopsis: The hand has been described as the mirror to the soul. From the very beginning of history man has attempted to grasp through its form and surface the meaning of his own individual character and destiny. Palmistry has two faces -- one which is intuitive in character and another which is rooted in a scientific approach. The first type of palmistry uses the hand as a spring-board for intuitive judgements, and predictions of future events and character analyses are made, usually without real undersanding, purely by virtue of an intuitive 'feeling' for the hand.

The second type of palmistry is concerned with making judgements concerning character and future by the way of a systematic analysis of the signs and portents in the hand. The one method is concerned with emotional understanding, the second with intellectual understanding. The method advocated by Mr. Gettings consists of an amalgam of both these approaches for, whilst admitting the importance of a systematic approach to the study of the hand, Mr. Gettings insists that true palmistry, like medicine, must be essentially a matter for intuitive judgements.

Palmistry is more of an art than a science. This authoritative, well designed book presents a new system of palmistry in a visually exciting and intellectually stimulating way. The text is divided into three sections, each of which contributes something new to the study of palmistry. The first section makes a completely original contribution to the study, for the author has classified the different hand forms into eight types which bear a distinct relationship to the theory behind astrology. The section on chiromancy, the study of the lines of the hand, deals more realistically than usual with the the true significance of the lines, whilst the third section consists of the first written history of western palmistry, based on original texts in the British Museum, the Bibliotheque Nationale and the Bodleian.
