Description
[Anonyme] - Chirognomonie et Chiromancie - 1900
Esotericism, Manuscripts - Quantity: 1 - Book

Handwritten anonymous notebook with 32 pages covered with tight handwriting and illustrated with 2 drawings in pencil and pen, dealing with the art of predicting the future using the lines of the hand. The text seems to have come from the occult teachings of Adolphe Desbarrolles (according to a note on the title) and can therefore be dated to the early twentieth century.

Blue-ish paper cover with handwritten title label pasted to the cover.

Good overall condition, small split in the spine, other minor defects.

¶ Adolphe Desbarrolles count of Hautencourt (1801-1886) was a Martinist adept and esoteric writer, close to the occultist Éliphas Lévi.
