Written by himself in the sixty-sixth year of his age, to his worthy friend, Elias Ashmole. Published from the original manuscript London, 1715. The author calculates nativities, casts figures, predicts events, and other appendages of astrology. He relates many anecdotes of the pretenders to foretell events, raise spirits, and other impostures, with such seeming candor, and with such an artless simplicity of style. Includes entertaining history of Doctor Dee, Doctor Forman, Booker, Winder, Kelly, Evans, the famous William Poole, and Captain Bubb Fiske, Sarah Shelborne, and many others. Illustrated.
