Prima edizione.

Testo costruito con il sistema di domanda e risposta. Gli astrologi sono affiancati ai magicians, sorcerers and Chaldeans, tutti praticanti un’arte vietata dalla legge e da Dio (an abomination to the Lord). L’astrologia, insomma, è false, delusive, and uncertain.

Altra edizione (second impression), ma con il diverso titolo di Judicial astrologers totally routed, and their pretence to Scripture, reason and experience briefly, yet clearly and fully ansvvered. Or a brief discourse, wherein is clearly manifested, that divining by the stars hath no solid foundation: In the first part of this book are several cases of conscience answered, both from the Word of God, and from the experience of eminent divines of different judgments. In the second part of it, are the maximes of judicial astrology examined and answered; and many eminent examples added, of the frustration of the tokens of these liars.
