122 fingerprint cards with the fingerprints of the left and right hands of individuals. Each card is annotated with the person's name and occupation, relationship to other individuals in the series (if any), reference codes allocated by Galton and letters signifying their fingerprint types. There are usually two or three cards per person.
These cards do not appear to follow any order.
