Anonymous astrological manuscript of the eighteenth century, never published.
After an introduction in which the author presents the principles of Astrology (planets, houses, zodiacal signs, ..), the manuscit is tevoted to the theme of a woman whom the author claims never to have meet.
The theme is divided into three parts. The first gives the stars the day of birth (in 1688) of the subject. The second, which the author calls "the root", describes the major influences surrounding this woman's life (life expectancy, temperament, spirit, morals, family, marriage, wealth, happiness, honor, travel, friends, enemies , illness, death). The last part gives predictions years after years - beginning to 8 year-old and ending at the predicted time of his death, at age 79 the 22th of January 1767, with the facts that should happen throughout his life.
It's hard to know if this manuscript, is a case study or theme of a real person.
It is rare to find such manuscript, a true testimony of astrology as it could be practiced in the eighteenth century.
