FINGERPRINTING by Charles Edward Chapel


Email this review


I can see only two main markets for this:- (1) a vocational and educational market, for police schools, detective agencies, and wherever fingerprint specialists learn their trade; (2) crime fans, who want to familiarize themselves with the technique of the sleuths, whether for fictional purposes, or because crime has become a hobby (if one can trust the novelists). Highly specialized text of the new science of fingerprinting, historical background, new developments, the hows and wheres and whys, the use of finger prints in court, advice on testimony, the classifications and filing systems.
