William Lilly (1602-1681) was one of the most renowned astrologers in English history. He wrote and published many books and almanacs on astrology and prophecy. He cast horoscopes for King Charles I, and predicted the great fire of London in 1666 so accurately that he was suspected of complicity in its origin. However, he was acquitted of the charge, and later became a practicing physician, utilizing astrology in the treatment of his patients. In 1647 he published his Introduction to Astrology, which remains to this day one of tne most comprehensIve and accurate texts on the subject ever written. It lay neglected for over 200 years, until a new edition was published in 1852, edited and introduced by the noted nineteenth-century English astrologer, Zadkiel.
