Philipp Mey was a 17th-century German physiognomist, however, beyond that, little is known of his life. He wrote an important ‘medical’ work entitled ‘Chiromancy and Physiognomia’. This book is filled with 17 impressive illustrations of the human face and hand, describing parts of each that are used for fortune-telling and prophecy. It is notable, however, that the descriptions and details used in this book are the same that are used in 21st-century chiromancy studies. (Wehman)
