Bibliographical note:

  • This journal, while very broad-based, featured some widely-cited articles on astrology in and around 1913 – most notably, a dialogue between an M. J. Brieu and Paul Flambart (i.e. Paul Choisnard), whose response to Brieu’s serialised article appears in the November 1913 issue.

Binding format and presentation notes:

  • All issues held as separate issues in their original thin card covers. Paperbacks.
