Cheiro whoever the Publisher had writing it at the moment, 1st Cheiro was William John Warner

Ireland / England 1866 - 1936

Cheiro, derives from the word cheiromancy, meaning palmistry

Books: Cheiro's Guide To The Hand; Palmistry for All ; Cheiro's Language of the Hand: A Complete Practical Work on the Sciences of Cheirognomy and Cheiromancy, Containing the System, Rules, and Experience ; A Study of Destiny; Book of Fate and Fortune ; Book of Numbers; Chiero: You And Your Hand

Comments: Most of these books, or pamphlets, were cheap, poorly printed, and advertised in comics, mens magazines and Occult monthlies. Such names as Sepharial, Cheiro, Raphael controlled by smart business men like Henri Gamache and William De Laurence disregarded copyrights and author royalties in search of more money for less. Even H. Spencer Lewis, the 1st Imperator of the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC), made his fortune in this shadow advertising world. Eventually, the estates of these publishers sold the rights to their invented authors, and they are still used today in weekly magazines sold at the supermarket. Resources:;;
