Christian astrology modestly treated of in three books.
London, Partridge and Blunden, 1647 - 23 Bll., S. 25 - 833, 11 Bll. mit einigen Textholzschnitten. 1 Kupfer-Porträt. Erste Ausgabe des Hauptwerks des vielleicht bedeutendsten englischen Astrologen, sehr selten. - "William Lilly (11 May [O.S. 1 May] 1602 – 9 June 1681) has been described as the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century. . Lilly`s most comprehensive book was published in 1647 and was entitled Christian Astrology. It is so large that it came in three separate volumes in modern times, and it remains popular even today and has never gone totally out-of-print. It is considered one of the classic texts for the study of traditional astrology from the Middle Ages, in particular horary astrology, which is mainly concerned with predicting future events or investigating unknown elements of current affairs, based on an astrological chart cast for the time a particular question is asked of the astrologer. Worked examples of horary charts are found in Volume 2 of Christian Astrology. . The publication of a facsimile of the original 1647 edition of Lilly`s Christian Astrology in 1985 by Regulus Publishing Company Ltd., in the UK, brought about a renaissance in astrological scholarship in North America and Europe, and also a transformation of the techniques of modern astrology. Olivia Barclay and other British astrologers began to unearth Lilly`s astrological work, and were influential in the eventual re-publication of Christian Astrology" (Wikipedia Abruf vom 12.10.2017). - Die ersten 4 Blätter (inlusive dem Kupferporträt) sowie die letzten beiden Blätter gereinigt und mit restaurierten Beschädigungen sowie teils aufgezogen (ohne Text- bzw.
