[1] Neither this, nor the implicit original French edition, is found in French library records. The translation is from the original English-language edition recorded as having been published in India in 1901 under the name “Four Lectures on Astrology, Exoteric and Esoteric”, which ran to 72 pages. Despite the fact that the original Indian edition is found in four libraries recorded on Worldcat, and the French editions in none, the second French edition has proved much more common on the second-hand market-place in recent years than the original Indian one, which would appear probably to have suffered from low levels of distribution outside India

About this Book Scan

Carefully scanned in full colour from our original printing of the 1905 first French edition.

Astrologie Exotérique et Ésotérique was a French translation of Leo’s Four Lectures on Astrology. It seems to have sold far more widely in French-speaking Europe than the English original did in Great Britain, to judge by the greater number of surviving copies in circulation. Our scan of the English original is also available for separate sale from Astrolearn.
