Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I took a stab at finding the 1848 version online, but no luck. It is in ten volumes and I have not able to locate them all.

It is not in Mill's original (only six volumes), that one only mentions thumbs in relation to religious practices etc.

The claim could of course also appear in Indian litterature on subject, which might have other sources. Hm.

Sweden's finest (and perhaps only) collaborative, leftist e-newspaper Synapze.se
