SPECULUM ASTROLOGIAE An especially rare astrological work Joseph Dunninger's library, Speculum Astrologiae quod attinet ad iudiciariam rationem nativitatum atque annuarum revolutionum: cum nonnullis approbatis Astrologorum sententiis, Franciscus Junctinus, printed in Lyons by P. Roussin, 1573 and bearing Dunninger's bookplate on the front pastedown. The book has been rather crudely rebound in black leather, lacking any flyleaves and title page, the first page of text commencing: "Ad Serenissimam Reginam Catharinam" at top, the same page bearing slight marginal loss at top not affecting text, one small ink note in corner of page with printer's citation. The last page of text present which bears text at top: "Quae inter reliqua per impressionem..." shows some soiling and edge wear, verso shows many astrological notes in a contemporary hand. The balance of the volume is tight and apparently very clean.
Estimate $ 700-900
