    Surprise, a 35-mm film arrived with negatives of all the pertinent pages in Latin (Martin has entrusted the film to me to retain in my capacity as Historian of The Fingerprint Society). , translated the thesis in 1940, and The Royal Society of London obtained the translation and duly gave permission for it to be published in Fingerprint Whorld, April 1987. 2) and also a most detailed description of a palm impression: Arch: From the articular fold, rugae and sulci first course in almost straight lines transversely from one side of the phalanx to the other; then little by little they become more curved in the middle, until they are bent in arches which are nearly parallel with the periphery of the phalanx.

    Thus triangles are formed with the vertices at the wrist. This is their most common conformation. Other parallel lines from the roots of the fingers meet and accompany the lines running across from the interval of the thumb and the index finger toward the external margin of the fifth metacarpal. Running out from these intervals, loops and whorls are interposed; but it would take too long to explain in this chapter the many varieties of these. On the thenar eminence, a trapezoidal region occurs where the rugae and sulci are set transversely to the circles.

However, a year previously in The Fingerprint System at New Scotland Yard (1954), he wrote the following on page 6: The value of Henry Faulds’ (1843–1930) contribution to fingerprint science has been much discussed, but it is beyond question that Herschel was in the field many years before Faulds; in fact there is incontrovertible proof that Herschel was experimenting with finger, palm and sole prints when Faulds was but 16 years old.
