Another Amazing Vintage Book Find Titled, The Complete Astrologer by Derek & Julia Parker – First Edition 1971
When visiting my parents a couple weeks ago, my father and I ventured out to some of our favorite thrift shops because it’s our thing to spend hours searching for vintage treasures like toys, board games, house decor, oddities and books!
Anyways we went to this HUGE thrift shop and I was so fortunate to find the above mentioned book, The Complete Astrologer. It is something else, I tell you! Filled with so much information and unlike any type of astrology book that I have ever seen before. I have been reviewing it while reading 2 other books so I have barely broke the surface with this one. It’s a mental juggling act that I don’t mind for the true greater good, but I do need to focus on it exclusively once I’m finished the two. My Amazon Wish List has to wait for a bit
There are two versions of this book and both are featured in pictures in this blog. There is a white covered version of this book but the issue I found is the red hardcover one that I found shelled in a solid, red and thick paper case. The picture is right below this paragraph.
When I flipped through it’s thick, yet smooth, colorful, yet dull pages, I felt as though I was in a Beatles 70s movie lol So 70′s esque! The artwork is amazing and even the fonts make you want to run outside on a sunny day in a wheat field, in the nude, whilst picking some wildflowers that start to bloom under your bare feet.
The couple that wrote it, Parkers, have written so many more books too. I am actually kind of excited to try and collect them all. It’s very rare that I find these treasures in person so I will resort to Amazon and Ebay because it is so very easy to purchase out of print books that way.
I just wanted to share this with you because I think it’s a book that people who are interested in astrology and/or the zodiac might want to check out. Peace out
