Стр. 34 - Lilly, almost as great a knave himself) " with a very good report of the neighbourhood, especially of the poor, unto whom he was charitable. He was a person that in horary questions, especially thefts, was very judicious and fortunate, so also in sicknesses, which indeed was his master-piece. In resolving questions about marriage, he had good success ; in other questions, very moderate. Встречается в книгах (26) с 1811 по 2004.

This is a pretty light but interesting primary source, written by the greatest astrologer of his day, William Lilly. It's very definitely an autobiography meant for public consumption, even though it is ostensibly written to Lilly's great friend Elias Ashmole.

As such it's more about his life story as a whole and his triumphs and adversities, which amount mostly to lawsuits and disputes and questioning by the various authorities about either the godliness of his Art, or the contents of his predictions, which sometimes offended or worried; the more so when he was right, as he was believed to have been about the Great Plague and the Great Fire.

As compared to Pepys, whose Diary was for himself and his own amusement, Lilly's tale is pretty staid, although there are a few off color bits. It's amazing, however, how he goes from very modern sounding astrological consultations such as who will I marry to more magical sounding questions like where is the treasure to serious prognostications like when should Parliament's forces march, or on what day should the King plan his escape, all of which he was asked.

Toward the end there are even matter-fact sections about having summoned and been instructed by Angels and Mab, the Queen of the Fairies, and how terrifying it was to some who were not ready for it, that they as she began to draw near in a whirlwind, they were overcome with fear and made him stop the summoning. Lilly seems to be highly amused by this.

It's maybe not the most detailed or useful historical document, as it's clearly a public-relations piece. And yet, if you're researching Restoration-era astrology, it's an extremely useful portrait of a practitioner, his education, and his life.

As a free Kindle Book, it's got the usual issues; some formatting problems (footnotes undistinguised from regular text, in the middle of pages) and the odd OCR problem. Honestly, however, it's a FREE Kindle book. If you had to read the original 400+ year old book in the original typesetting fonts, spellings, f for s, and so on, it's be considerably more difficult. And expensive, outside of a library.

I do wish it were annotated, however. I'd pay good money for an edition annotated by an expert. I've read a lot of this kind of thing, yet I am sure there's plenty more I could have learned reading along behind a real expert...

I tried reading this to my little granddaughter and she was totally bored. This is by far the worst children's book I've ever read. The illustrations are quite nice but he writing is just awful and a complete turn-off for small children.
