Abstract:
Manuscript on paper, in a single hand, of a complete prognostication for someone born in the Haywards Heath region of Sussex, including his personality; the length of his life; his financial situation; his relationship to his father; the number of his marriages; satisfaction with his servants; the behavior of his "pretended friends"; and the kind of travel he will do. For example, the manuscript declares, "The Native should go many voyages or long journies...the chief end of his travelling should be to gain learning and honor; But the Moon and Mare being in opposition to the Ninth Hous, shewe that it should be very unproffitable to him." The volume also includes 7 horoscope drawings.
