Here's what I found in my copy of 'The Study of Palmistry' by Comte C. de Saint-Germain (1935) -
The book came to me from my girl friend's mother's garage. No idea how it ended up in there. Here's what's interesting about this book:
The book was owned by one 'Theodore R. Rollins'. It signed his name and dated it in 1941 on the inside front cover.
On the inside cover there is a newspaper clipping regarding a French fortune teller La Voisin from the 1600's.
Mr. Rollins later wrote a dedication of the book to his grandchildren in 1967 when he passed the book on to them.
Pasted into the front of the book on the leading blank pages is the obiturary of Mme. Emma Calvé, dated 1942. (I like to assume that it was placed there by Mr. Rollins as it seems he owned the book in '42.) This is interesting as the book was originally dedicated to a Mademoiselle Emma Calvé. [I've included a copy of the photo of her which was printed opposite of the title page; obviously, the author was a fan, as the original photo was personalized to him by her.]
The inside front-cover has the following hand written text:"11/15/41 Theodore R. Rollins 731-21 St. N.E. Wash, D.C.
[newspaper clipping on French fortune teller La Voisin ]
To my Grandchildren Charlie Man or Terry Lee April 12, 1967
From Grand Daddy Theodore R. Rollins
