INTRODUCTION: 'Since the adoption of finger impressions by various departments (both national and international) as a means of making positive identifications, the public has deemed the subject to be a very mysterious and complicated one, for the reason that all previous publications on finger prints fail to explain the system in a manner that would enable a person of ordinary intelligence thoroughly to master and understand it in every detail. In writing this book, an endeavor has been made to remove the mystery (which is only imaginary), by explaining the method of taking, classifying, comparing and filing finger impressions, in every detail, and in language that does not require a college education intelligently to understand.'
