The Handbook of PalmistryBook - 2016
The future's not written in the stars, but etched in the palm of your hand, as Victorian mystic Rosa Baughan discovered to her endless fascination. Drawn from clandestine dinners with Parisian scholars, the wisdom of the Kabbalah, and more, this handbook is the product of her exhaustive research into the ancient art of palmistry. More than a century on, it still stands as the definitive guide for anyone seeking their first glimpse of tomorrow today. Filled with intriguing illustrations, this lavish new edition of Madame Rosa's 1895 original showcases her findings beautifully. With chapters devoted to palmistry's enigmatic Eastern origins, the influence of the planets at the time of our birth, and the meaning of every formation you could possibly encounter - from mounts to forks, stars to spots, Rosa leaves no palm unturned - prepare to astound your friends with your new-found knowledge. The Handbook of Palmistry is essential reading for anyone who's ever dreamed of unlocking their inner seer.
