Traditional Astrology For discussions on Traditional Astrology only. (Note: Typically, traditional astrology is defined as using techniques developed prior to 1700 by astrologers from the Hellenistic, Persian, Hebrew, and Renaissance eras. In general, it relies on Ptolemaic aspects (sextile, trine, square, opposition and conjunction) though there may be some exceptions, and always excludes modern planets (Neptune, Uranus and Pluto,) as well as any asteroids. The focus is less on what would be considered modern psychological chart interpretation and more on prediction. Members who wish to explore a combination of traditional and modern ideas should feel free to start a new thread in an appropriate forum for further discussion.)

Benjamin Dykes PhD / Bonnati Translation

"Bonatti's Book of Astronomy
The first-ever translation of Guido Bonatti's renowned medieval masterpiece of astrology has now sold out. But due to its importance and the level of demand, 1st-edition reprints of select Treatises are now available!"


Does anyone one have an extra original copy that may be purchased or know of anyone who may? It would be nice to have the book instead of buying the individual Treatises.

The link to amazon offers some of the treatises
and not the complete BOOK OF ASTRONOMY by Guido Bonatti that Jehan seeks
BENJAMIN DYKES has best offer of 10% off when buying all the treatises

Re: Benjamin Dykes PhD / Bonnati Translation

I think the first edition must have been a very small print run. I looked on BookFinder, which is international, and they couldn't find it.

A lot of time and dedication went into translating these works so that they were fit for public use. It would lessen the incentive for more of these ancient texts to hit the public if his work was prostituted over the web.

The thing I can't buy it online. Amazon doesn't ship to my country. And If it were available in my country, I would buy it but it is not. There are people all over the world who are studying astrology, but most of them don't have the access to such rich textbooks.

That's understandable. Then sharing with someone who has it would be the option that benefits all innit.

Re: Benjamin Dykes PhD / Bonnati Translation

Many of the tractates are available on amazon as kindle books. That wouldn't require shipping.

Re: Benjamin Dykes PhD / Bonnati Translation

You have to be careful with kindle books. A lot of people complain about unusable ones, where the formating has gone very wrong

Even if Amazon doesn't ship to your country (which one?) there are Amazon market place sellers, ebay sellers, etc

My country doesn't deal with online internet shopping. We don't have credit cards.
