    Description

    A Remarkable Set of Astrological Campaign Biographies for the Four 1860 Candidates: Lincoln, Douglas, Breckenridge, and Bell. Published as monthly editions of Boughton's Planet Reader and Astrological Journal from August through November, 1860. Each has a great cover picturing a candidate surrounded by his astrological chart, followed by seven pages of text, including predictions about the election and the qualities and prospects of the candidates. For those who might tend to give credence to this "science", we note that Boughton's predicted a Stephen Douglas victory!

    An extremely rare set; while this actual set has appeared twice before in the market place over the last five years, we cannot recall ever seeing another. Excellent condition save for tiny holes along the left edge, from having previously been bound into a single volume. Each measures 5.5" x 9".
