Silvereye: I think the version you refer to is probably the original way of using this, because it has been in use for centuries!
The version I have is supposed to be a translation, after its author had his fortune told in a Chinese Joss House. The book does not name the author/translator but does give credit to its ancient origins. The year 1915 is listed as the copyright.
Kimon: I like this for its rhyming fortunes. The rhymes are clever, & give one something to think about.
