    Abstract

    Unless you are a thumbprint examiner or handwriting examiner in India, this book will not be of much use to you. In the preface, the author states that “the book contains all about fingerprints.” In fact, it deals only with one small part of the field of fingerprint identification. The author has limited his book to the identification and comparison of inked thumbprints to inked thumbprints as they appear on documents of questioned authorship and does not touch on any of the other types of fingerprint identification. In fairness to the author, his field of expertise is important in India and other countries with a high illiteracy rate, but it is not a field used much in the United States.
