The new book of knowledge

Shewing the effects of the planets and other astronomical constellations; with the strange events that befall men, women and children, born under them. Together with the husbandman's practice: or, prognostication for ever. With the shepherd's perpetual prognostication for the weather. Also a brief discourse of the natural causes of meteors; with an account of several remarkable earthquakes, rains, thunders, lightnings, comets, blazing-stars, &c. that have happen'd in several countries. And observations on the weather, and signs foretelling rain. A brief collection of all the members of man physiognomiz'd: the signification of moles on man or woman: the interpretation of dreams, and pythagoras's wheel of fortune. With several other secrets of art and nature, not to be sound in any other book of this kind.
