About this Book Scan

Carefully scanned in full colour from our original printing of the rare first edition of 1893.

Rosa Baughan, best known as the author of The Influence of the Stars (1889), also translated into English an old Hebrew manuscript from an earlier Spanish translation by a team of translators styling themselves Pelanca y Tita. Baughan’s English edition was published as Solar Horoscopes in 1893, and is now exceedingly rare.
