Relatively uncommon autobiographical work from prolific English astrologer, William J. Tucker (1896-1981). This book along with 30+ other titles were all self published by his Pythagorean Press in the 60's and 70's, a handful being reprints of his earlier works from the 30's and 40's. Tucker was influential in bringing a scientifically established model to the field of astrology in England in the mid 20th century.
We note no publication statement nor copyright page in this copy, perhaps making it an early proof of some sort. All printings and reprintings, including with this particular title, were noted by Tucker usually with the month and year of imprint. . Item #5562
