The Practice of Palmistry by Comte De Saint Germain!

Post  kimmiexsweetie on Sun Mar 23, 2014 4:53 pm

I seriously love this book. Some of the books I read can be a little confusing because there are no illustrations to depict the author's descriptions! So while the reader may be visualizing one detail, the author may mean another!

What's great about this book is that it offers clear illustrations for each and every description. I definitely recommend this book!

Sorry Kimmiexsweetie, this title actually represents one of the most controversial books inside the field of palmistry... and it is probably not a coincidence that 2 books from this author are listed in the TOP 5 controversial books (based on the 'votes' shared by 29 experts from around the world), see:
http://www.handresearch.com/book/palmistry-books-controversial-palm-reading.htm

Inside Christopher Jones' review of the history of palmistry you can read more about why this author has earned very little respect inside the palmistry community (Comte de St Germain is accused of various issues, including e.g.: fraude & plagiarism):
http://www.cheirology.net/history/stgermain.htm

Quote:

"The self-styled 'Count' St Germain was not a count at all but, it would seem, a journalist for the Chicago Times, whose real name was Edgar de Valcourt-Vermont. He maintained a palmistry column in this newspaper for some years and between 1884 and 1897, published three (some say four) books on handreading. These are generally recognised as being some of the worst - and most inaccurate - books on palmistry ever written."


Anyway, despite that I am aware that many do not share your enthousiasm for this book... the single 'positive vote' (next to 5 'negative votes') for this title is illustrative for how opinions tend to vary among readers.

I hope this info will become helpfull for you.

Oh...nooo! 

Thanks Martijin for enlightening me on the critical reception of that book. I didn't know!
What literature, then, would you recommend for me that has clear illustrations but still is lauded in the palmistry community?
