About this Book Scan

Carefully scanned in full colour from our original printing of the 1901 first edition.

Everybody’s Astrology was the first book to be issued in an extensive series of small-format books known collectively as Alan Leo’s Astrological Manuals, which were authored by Leo and several colleagues. Unlike many of the later volumes, this one was written by Leo personally.

It ran through several variant editions as the series evolved, and such was the extent of the changes made that we have felt it historically valuable to take scans of four different editions and offer them separately as downloads from Astrolearn.

This first edition from 1901 has become exceptionally rare since its original publication. Original printings are extremely seldom found for sale.
