Cheiro (William John Warner, 1866 - 1936), was one of the most famous 'public' occultists of the early twentieth century. He wrote numerous books on the subjects in which he specialized: astrology, palmistry (cheiromancy), and numerology, and gave individual readings and lessons, as well as releasing broader, public prophecies. In this detailed work he examines the subject of palmistry, using numerous plates depicting the hands of famous people as examples.
