What are people using as their palmistry "bible"?

Post  cshahar on Wed Sep 01, 2010 1:57 pm

I was wondering: what are the most trusted sources of palmistry knowledge (reference books) people use? I asked this question on the Yahoo forum a few weeks ago and got a couple of responses. I figure the most trusted sources are good books to acquire in my reference library, and may provide different insights and dimensions to help round out my understanding of palmistry!

Thanks for your suggestions...

-Charles

Hi Charles,

Great topic!

I think that Ed Campbell's "The Encyclopedia of Palmistry" is truely a must have for all professionals & advanced students. For, I have never seen any likewise thorough work with so many references + sources. The book also presents an accurate & complete image picture of what the field of hand reading has evolved during the 20th century.

I hope that some day Ed will put his priority on presenting an update on the past 15 years, since 1996 - when his book was first published.



PS. Though obviously outdated, I still think that "The Benham book of Palmistry" (1900) also deserves a firm recommendation... because it was a milestone in the history of palmistry. And Benham's book has quite a few times been refered as 'the bible of palmistry'.

Read more about both books here:
- The Encyclopedia of Palmistry
- The Benham Book of Palmistry

By the way, both books are listed in the Palmistry TOP 20 and they also belong to the TOP 6 of most recommended works:

While I'm relatively new to the study of palmistry I'd like to share the books that have been the most helpful to me. Your Life In Your Hands by Hutchinson is an older book but very thorough and highly recommended. Johnny Fincham's The Spellbinding Power of Palmistry is tremendous and I've found it absolutely accurate for myself. (I've registered for Johnny's Palmistry Intensive in France in February and am thrilled!) I recently acquired Jennifer Hirsch's God Given Glyphs. I've just started reading it and it has lots of good information on dermataglyphics. Also I just received in the post Arnold Holtzman's The Illustrated Textbook of Psychodiagnostic Chirology and it looks like an absolute gem. It's out of print and I lucked out finding my (pricey!) copy on Amazon. I'll skimp on groceries to buy books. :-)

Fantastic Martijn and Roberta. I have some of the books you mention, but not all. I shall look further into them and will certainly buy them if they attract me. Roberta, I am curious how much you paid for The Illustrated Textbook of Psychodiagnostic Chirology? I just ordered it through inter-library loan, but would rather have my own copy!

I generally grab any book on the subject as the more observations one looks at the more Stuff can finally sink in, and one can look at that which is consistent with contemporary thought and analysis. It is also interesting to see how social conditioning has impacted on hands and their interpretation. Desbarrolles (downloaded from microfilm, Barr Smith library), Saint Germaine, Walter Sorrel, Nathaniel Altman, Jaquin, Vera Compton, Cheiro and am also looking at it from the Kabbalistic perspective and find Chinese and Indian interpretations very informative. Have long thought of getting the two recommended texts so will!

Post  great-palmist on Fri Apr 01, 2011 12:30 pm

i had studied many palmistry books , but i trust on old indian Vedic palmistry book , that is best i have ever seen and i read book of benhem , kiero and many many , but what i feel palmistry is not connected with science, its just like above the science . so the book that i have can predict time and date , and year of person via seeing palm only

Hello Laurah,

This has always been my favorites too.Posted many times on books at this forum and my best reads still remain the same.

My best takes are:

1.Richard Webster:Palmistry for beginners.Very basic book but made much sense to me.

2.Palmistry:The Universal Guide:Nathaniel Altman.Honest experiences of Mr Altman elucidated with some real prints and case studies that often bother many of us in real lives.

3.The Spellbinding power of Palmistry:Initially I was dis approving of the book.But its really a masterpiece.Because what is being said makes so much sense.

4.Fred Gettings Books (Palmistry Made Easy):Author's views seem very original and very honest.No tall claims.Simple and make an interesting read.

Edward Campbell's book has one serious drawback that not a single hand print is there.Besides a major part of the book seem to mention only what other's have written.Here the Altman's book scores much high on the context and originality.So far what I think of my reads only.No book is a bible I guess as everyone develops own style and its better to be influenced than engulfed by some one's thoughts.
