Astrology Books and Papers by 144 authors acquired in 2021

First entry, February 7th, 2021: 2021 began with a fair flurry of arrivals of books ordered in late 2020 and a few others ordered right at the start of January 2021, but has since quietened down to a state of near-total inactivity on the arrivals front, as I began a prolonged saving drive in January. Consequently, it seems unlikely that the total of authors will advance much at all on the 38 recorded thus far this year for the next couple of months at least. Special thanks to astrologer Michaël Mandl for his kind donation to the library of a complete set of Dr. Baldur Ebertin’s ‘Kosmobiologische Diagnostik’ (1984) and various issues of Italian astrological journals, among other items, in January. Also included in the count are two boxed sets of cut-out cardboard astronomical devices from the 1970s, credited primarily to Paul R. MacAlister and Floylydia M. Etting, and to Roderick S. Webster, respectively. Each comes with its own original printed multi-page instruction brochure(s) so they have both been included in the book count although they are not only books.

Second entry, February 28th, 2021: In defiance of my previous projections, stocking up on a host of recent modern astrology books shortlisted as long ago as last summer in the past few weeks, together with the arrival of a final small lot of previously purchased books from the USA just days after the previous entry was posted, and a small number of gap-filling second-hand book purchases from France by Gustave-Lambert Brahy and Frédéric Maisonblanche, has swollen the number of first-named authors featured in the year to date to 82. The paused saving drive has now been resumed!

Third entry, May 2nd 2021: My saving goal having been largely achieved around April 22nd, I’ve resumed catching up with modern works previously lacked. Further, my astrologer friend Kirk Little has kindly donated various editions of modern works spanning the 1940s to the 1990s that the library previously lacked; and Adam Fronteras and Azwin Subramanyan have both kindly donated editions of their books. Finally, I purchased an original printing of the illustrated 1822 edition of William Lilly’s History of His Life and Times. These additions have combined to swell the number of first-named authors by whom previously unheld editions and printings have been added to the library in 2021 by 23 to 105.

Fourth entry, May 29th 2021: Several academic works and a small number of modern non-academic books have been acquired in the past four weeks, further swelling the author count in the year to date by another ten to 115

Fifth entry, July 11th 2021: There have been various new arrivals in the past six weeks in both the modern astrology and academic spheres, between them adding another 29 first-named authors to the roll call for the year to date to take the total to 144.

  1. Hello I have a huge comprehensive astrological library acquired over the last 45 years in England and the US. Please advise what kinds of books you would like and I will put a specific bequest in my will for your library. My estate will obviously pay shipping to the UK.
    I was an active member of the AA and the AL during my 7 year stint in London. Thanks very much.

    • Hello Pamela,
      Thank you so much for your kind message!
      I was away for a while in March supporting one of my parents, so I’m sorry I didn’t see your message until yesterday, when I approved it in the system. Shall email you shortly from my main email address at solger75 [at] gmail.com with a fuller response.
      Very best wishes,
      Philip Graves (librarian / site manager at Astrolearn)
