The most essential material for Hand Reading is keen eyesight-by wearing spectacles if possible-and a dependable memory together with a through knowledge of this book. The light of the consulting or reading room should be sufficient to show the minutest signs and lines. In case difficulty in seeing all lines and signs is experienced, some white powder (talcum powder is very efficient) should be spread on the palm of the hand. The powder will let the palm glisten and every line or mark will be clearly visible.
