THE author of the Every-Day-Book has published an amusing sa- tire upon the old astrological almanacks. His black-letter informa- tion has enabled him to preserve the character of these publications, the relics of ancient ignorance and superstition, and at 1 he same time to mix up with it a good deal of curious matter. Parts also are not destitute of humour. A shilling cannot be better expended, provided that it is a shilling to spare.
