Handbook on Hands

£12.99

Product description

To quote from the Introduction - "A Hand is a complete map of its owner's life, character and physique; it tells of his character and potentialities in its shape; of his inherited tendencies in the pattern of the skin where also may be found indications of health, conditions long before the factual appearance of illness in the body". The author has an MBE after her name and there is a colour illustration of the Queen and Prince Phillip so, clearly, in 1953 this book was accorded a degree of respect and recognition.

Rider hardback with no DJ. Green cloth covered boards with white lettering to spine. Minimal evidence of wear to the boards. No marks and good binging. Multiple illustrations both line drawings and black and white photographs.

A clean little book written in a straightforward style.
