The Conjuror’s Magazine

Vol 1 No 7 (February 1792) p.204.


The Correspondents etc. page is printed at the start of each number. It serves as the editor’s  noticeboard with messages to named individuals who have submitted articles or queries: (“J. FOOLISH will be answered in our next”). B.’s announcement below shows that his articles in the magazine have stimulated letters addressed to him.




B. returns Ben Row his thanks for the communication of the Volume of Almanacks for 1682, and will be able to illustrate Astrology, and the relations and virtues of certain parts of the Zodiac, very strongly from them, and some circumstances attending them. It is the purpose of B. to communicate gradually through this Magazine, a Treatise on MACROCOSMAL ASTROLOGY; which he had first designed for a separate publication; but thinks his OBJECT—the enlightening of Mankind will be more certainly attained by interspersing his information where it may meet the eye that looks not for it, and important matter where amusement is sought. An INTRODUCTION on the TRUTH and IMPORTANCE of ASTROLOGY, is promised for our next.
