For reasons unknown (to me), I'm getting a lot of incoming traffic today on a couple of old posts: one about the Zodiac and the other concerning black market Harry Potter stuff...
My all-time favourite Zodiac book is one I picked up as a teenager at a garage sale: "The Mysteries of the Zodiac" by Prof. A.F. Seward (pictured at left) "World's Foremost Astrologer."
First printed in 1928 (the edition I posess), this little booklet's aim is true. I've read all the signs but I clearly identify with everything the good Prof. wrote about Scorpio. No doubt when the manual's copyright ran out someone re-published it, but I would trust only the original, if you can find it! Last year I saw a 1915 copy listed on eBay for $3.99!
What's really cool about the book: in the back there is a "coupon" for a personalized astrological forecast for $1. It bears Seward's boardwalk address and declares "This Coupon is never out of date --- send it in anytime." I've been wondering what would happen if I did send it in? Should I?
