"After many years of teaching astrology, first to private pupils and then to classes, it has become increasingly obvious that the student is hampered in his early days by not being able to see examples of work set out and arranged by a working astrologer. It is hoped that this book will help to fill the need especially for those abroad, unable to attend lectures. Other astrologers may not agree with the interpretations as given but even this case, clarification of ideas may result through the presentation of these examples for discussion.
Grateful acknowledgment is now made, firstly to those who have so freely given permission for their personal letters and chart-interpretations to be published; secondly to those who have helped to correct the book; Miss Jacinthe Buddicom, who has acted as checker of significators and Mr. J.M. Filbey, who calculated the charts.
As it is difficult to write a detailed book without mistakes, these are apologised for in advance." (jacket)
