Cover
Cosimo, Inc., 01.10.2005 - 280 Seiten
Hardened skeptics and true believers alike will delight in this one-volume presentation of two timeless references of the occult. Zadkiel's dream book offers a dictionary-style guide to interpreting your nighttime visions: To dream of standing in a carpeted room "denotes advancement to a state of riches," but watch out for mice, which indicate "many intermeddling enemies and slanderers"! Sibly's handbook on fortune telling promises "never-failing means for ladies to obtain good husbands, and husbands good wives" and reveals the secrets of astrology, physiognomy, palmistry, and other arts of divination.Londoner RICHARD JAMES MORRISON (1795-1874), aka Zadkiel, was among the first pop astrologers. His annual yearbook, first called The Herald of Astrology and later Zadkiel's Almanac, began publication in 1830 and was the first work in the field to appear in editions of tens of thousands of copies.English physician, alchemist, and astrologer Ebenezer Sibly (1751-1800) also wrote A New and Complete Illustration of the Occult Sciences and The Complete Illustration of the Celestial Art of Astrology.
