Old English books about palmistry

Just added a couple of English texts on palmistry: Richard Saunders, Palmistry, the secrets thereof disclosed (1663) introduced by a some William Lilly 🙂 and Rothman Keiromantia [sic]: or, The art of divining by the lines and signatures engraven in the hand of man, by the hand of nature, theorically, practically. (1652).

  1. Hi Margherita,

    Very interesting. I had no idea these 17th century English astrologers also wrote books on palmistry. I was lucky enough to recently attend an introductory Palmistry workshop with the English astrologer/Palmist/author Frank Clifford. I am not aware of many other western astrologers also doing Palmistry these days.

    best regards


  2. just i’m a little lazy to write something…to be honest I’m writing an article for CIDA, translating something else (I will never finish) and summer is starting 🙂
