Forgotten gurus: Z P Zazra

Thank goodness for the recommendation from the estimable “Dr Cooper”, otherwise you might have feared that the exotic Professor Z P Zazra’s skin looked a little too artificially dusky, his features a little too public school. For a shilling, Zazra offered an account of correspondents’ current lives and a prediction of their future on the basis of a single fingerprint. That was in the early 1900s. Today, there’s an app for that.
