About this Book Scan
The Horoscope and How to Read It by Alan Leo (1902) was the second volume to appear in the original line-up of the series of Astrological Manuals that he collectively edited.
It was designed as an educational introduction to the principles of horoscope-reading aimed at the beginning student.
This book was largely rewritten and also renamed by the time of the 1905 edition, which bears the title What Is A Horoscope and How Is It Cast? Our scan of that edition is also separately available as a download.
