Merlinus Gallicus: Or, A prediction for the year of grace, 1660 : Representing the state and condition of all sorts of persons in Europe, from the crown to the clown. Deduced from the configurations of the luminaries, conjunctions and aspects of the planets, after a more certain manner then practised by English artists. Together with the nativity of the illustrious King of Denmark: proving it impossible (by the canons of astrology) for him to lose his kingdom, or for the Swede to become lord thereof, wherein Merlinus Anglicus may see his error. Also a question and answer in astrology, whether Copenhagen shall be taken or no: with many other things of profitable consequence. / By Monsieur Fr. Missonne Philastrogus. To which is added, an everlasting almanack; with an easie way to erect a figure, and give judgement of the weather, and tables of houses fitted for several latitudes.
- Gadbury, John, 1627-1704.
