Partridge and Flamstead’s New and well experienced FORTUNE BOOK

Partridge and Flamstead’s New and well experienced FORTUNE BOOK

is the earliest English-language work assigning specific meanings to playing cards for the purpose of fortune-telling with cards. The first edition was published as Dr. Flamstead’s and Mr. Patridge’s New Fortune-Book in 1729. This updated shorter version was published some time after 1750. The individuals in the title likely to refer to Dr. John Flamsteed (1646–1719), the first Astronomer Royal, and John Partridge (1644-1715), a writer of astrology books and almanacs. However, the names of both Partridge and Flamstead are believed to have been appropriated by the true author(s) of the work. We've transcribed it from an original and are offering it as a free PDF.
