Classifying Palmprints

A Complete System of Coding, Filing and Searching Palmprint


This manual, one of the first references published on the subject, provides facts that furnish indisputable evidence that the presence of an efficient palmprint system is a necessary and an integral part of the modern-day identification bureau. Aspects of coding, taking, searching, and filing as well as a unique method of coding deltas and loop core formations are graphically discussed. Various tables showing the disposition of pattern types' on the palmar surface, delta types and loop core ridge variations, and a chart indicating the mode, pattern type, and palmar section of identifications are included to assist in the forming of filing systems.
