Descrizione: Tho. Brudenell for John Partridge and Humph. Blunden in Blackfriers at the Gate going into Carter-lane and in Cornhil, London, 1647. First edition. Hardcover. Small quarto. (xxii) (1-24) 25-832 (xxivpp. 'Catalogue of Astrological Authors .' Contents & Erratta .iipp. blanks ) Collates A4; (a) - (c) 4; D - PPPPP3 (no PPPPP4 - as issued). Twentieth century (?) full-leather binding, raised bands and gilt title-label to spine, boards have period-style decorations in blind. Frontispiece portrait of Lilly and numerous woodcut diagrams, charts etc. in text. Without doubt the most significant work of the foremost 17th century English astrologer, the Leicestershire-born William Lilly (1602 - 1681), who famously predicted the Great Fire of London in 1666. "Christian Astrology," is renowned as the most definitive work on horary astrology ever written in English, and remains the cornerstone of any collection of works on astrology. The "Christian" of the title would appear to be largely camouflage - presumably placed there to protect the author from suggestions that he was a heretic dabbling in the diabolic arts. As with all copies of the First Edition, the pagination is eccentric, but this copy has been carefully collated against other copies, including that in the British Library ('British Museum'), and is complete save for one leaf of the table of contents at the rear, which has been replaced in facsimile. The boards are lightly rubbed and there are a couple of light scrapes to the rear board, but other wise they are clean and fresh. The text block is generously margined: unusually so. The frontispiece portrait appears to have been laid down, possibly on a preceeding blank, and is quite darkened and chipped, with an old reinforcement to inner margin. Neat early astrological diagram on (blank) verso of title-page, and page of notes of similar vintage on final blank. A few early marginal notes, and one old repair to upper section of pp. 375/6 resulting in the loss of a few words. Pages (xvii-xviii) of the Table of Contents at rear wanting and replaced in facsimile. The pages are generally well-thumbed, particularly so at the fore-edge, where they also show occasional chipping and short tears. Page edges, title-page and frontispiece very darkened, the rest of pages also unevenly darkened, although not so heavily. Occasional smudges, light stains and other signs of use throughout. Obviously much used, but the pages remain supple and the binding strong, and with a little care the volume will serve at least another three hundred and thirty years. About VG. Codice articolo 58866

The Lives of Those Eminent Antiquaries Elias: Ashmole, Elias; William

Descrizione: T. Davies, London, 1774. Hardcover. Condizione: poor to g+. First edition. Octavo. 399pp. (+ 7 pages of publishers ads at the front). Brown leather boards with gilt lettering on the spine. Frontispiece portrait engravings of Elias Ashmole and William Lilly. The work serves as the combined autobiography of these two highly esteemed English Astrologers of the 17th century, taken from their own personal diaries and letters. Page 214, features an in-text chart of a solar eclipse, while p.249 contains an astrological chart from the exact time of the death of King Charles I. The lower margin of p. 45 contains a note in ink from the previous owner R.C. Smith, dated 1821. The final section consists of an appendix of the letters to and from Elias Ashmole. Binding with front and back boards detached. Interior with some light sporadic water stains and foxing throughout, with text mostly unaffected. Book block tight. Binding in poor, interior in good+ condition overall. Elias Ashmole (1617 - 1692) was a celebrated English antiquary, politician, officer of arms, astrologer and student of alchemy. Ashmole supported the royalist side during the English Civil War, and at the restoration of Charles II he was rewarded with several lucrative offices. The library and collection of curiosities that he had amassed throughout his life was donated to the University of Oxford, upon his death, and forms the basis of the Ashmolean Museum.William Lilly (1602 - 1681) has been described as "the most abused as well as the most celebrated astrologer of the seventeenth century". In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts, and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year. Codice articolo 42843

Born the son of a yeoman farmer in Leicestershire, Lilly travelled to London as a youth to take up a servant's position. Seven years later he secured his fortune by marrying his former master's widow, allowing him the leisure to study astrology. In 1644, during the English Civil War, he published the first of many popular astrological texts, and in 1647 he published Christian Astrology, a huge compendium of astrological technique. This was the first of its kind to be printed in the English language rather than Latin, and is said to have tutored "a nation in crisis in the language of the stars". By 1659, Lilly's fame was widely acknowledged and his annual almanac was achieving sales of around 30,000 copies a year. Lilly's autobiography, published towards the end of his life in 1681, at the request of his patron Elias Ashmole, gives candid accounts of the political events of his era, and biographical details of contemporaries that are unavailable elsewhere. It was described, in the late 18th century, as "one of the most entertaining narratives in our language", in particular for the historical portrayal it leaves of men like John Dee, Simon Forman, John Booker, Edward Kelley, including a whimsical first meeting of John Napier and Henry Briggs, respective co-inventors of the logarithm and Briggsian logarithms, and for its curious tales about the effects of crystals and the appearance of Queen Mab. In it, Lilly describes the friendly support of Oliver Cromwell during a period in which he faced prosecution for issuing political astrological predictions. He also writes about the 1666 Great Fire of London, and how he was brought before the committee investigating the cause of the fire, being suspected of involvement because of his publication of images, 15 years earlier, which depicted a city in flames surrounded by coffins. Lilly was a controversial character who was both aided and abetted by powerful friends and enemies. He attracted the attention of many members of Parliament, through the support of Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, (to whom he dedicated his Christian Astrology), but also accuses Members of Parliament of engineering charges against him in 1651. To his supporters he was an "English Merlin"; to his detractors he was a "juggling wizard and imposter". He is described as having been a genius at something "that modern mainstream opinion has since decided cannot be done at all", and having developed his stature as the most important astrologer in England through his social and political involvement, as well as his impact on the astrological tradition. Lilly's most comprehensive book was published in 1647 and was e. Codice articolo 28541AB
