Caption

Human and gorilla handprints. On the left is a handprint from the left hand of a human adult male. On the right is a print from the right hand of a young gorilla, taken from an illustration in Dr Henry Faulds's Guide to Finger-print Identification, 1905. Faulds, a Scottish scientist, was an early developer of fingerprint analysis. He used the print of a gorilla, named Chloe, kept at the Zoological Society's Gardens (now London Zoo) in Regent's Park, London. This comparison of prints shows the different patterns of palmar creases. For the human handprint alone, see image H200/411, for the gorilla print, see H200/409.
