From the Back Cover
Guido Bonatti's 13th Century masterpiece, The Book of Astronomy, has inspired and been a resource for astrologers around the world.
Bonatti on Horary contains Treatise 6 (On Questions) from the first English translation by Benjamin N. Dykes.
Students of Bonatti's horary astrology will learn the main modes of perfection, and how to judge over 100 different questions in all areas of life. Bonatti's also includes charts from his own practice as a military advisor. It will repay many years of study.

Originally written in Latin, finally this magisterial text of traditional astrology is available in English. Ben Dykes, the translator, has both a strong academic background (Ph.d in Philosophy) and is a practicing natal astrologer and graduate of Robert Zoller's excellent medieval natal astrology course. Dykes has done an excellent job of translating and commenting on the "Liber Astronomiae".
While the complete "Liber Astronomiae" contains an introduction to the basics of astrology, plus horary, electional, natal and mundane treatises, it often circulated in the Middle Ages and Renaissance in smaller subject sections. This is Bonatt's horary section. Definitely well worth getting for all students of horary astrology! Bonatti gives an excellent introduction to horary astrology which uses the time of a question, rather than the time of a birth chart. Bonatti then gives very detailed instructions for determining questions for each of the 12 houses.
All traditional horary astrologers need a copy of both Lilly's "Christian Astrology" and Bonatti's "Liber Astronomiae." With the complete hardcover edition out of print, I am glad the paperback edition of Bonatti "On Horary" is so easily available!
