Gadbury, John [1627-1704]. Coelestis Legatus: or, the coelestial Ambassadour, astrologically predicting the grand catastrophe that is probable to befall the most of the kingdomes, and countries of Europe. From the influences of those many planetary conjunctions celebrated in the month of September, 1656; but more especially from that eminent conjunction of Saturn and Mars in Virgo in the same month. Unto which is added a catalogue of all the conjuction of those two planets since the year 1552 reaching to the year 1700, with chronologicall observations, of what hath succeeded those past, and a probable conjecture of what may succeed those yet to come. Together with some peeces of Haly in the English tongue. By John Gadbury Philomath. London, Printed by E. B[rudenell?] and are to be sold by John Allen, at the Rising-Sun in Pauls Church-yard, 1656.
