The first comparatively complete and systematic palmistry work in China appeared in Western Han Dynasty (202 BC - 9 AD) which was written by Xu Fu. 

Which Hand to Read?

Before reading your palm, you should choose the right hand to read. There are different schools of thought on this matter. Some people think the right for female and left for male. As a matter of fact, both of your hands play great importance in hand reading. But one is dominant and the other is passive. The left hand usually represents what you were born with physically and materially and the right hand represents what you become after grown up. So, the right hand is dominant in palm reading and the left for supplement.
