The subject is astrology, which in Ptolemy's time as down to the Renaissance was fused as a respectable science with astronomy. Translations and commentaries are few, and only three Greek texts had been printed (all in the 16th century) before the present one and the one begun by F. Boll and finished by Emilie Boer in 1940. aMode of access: World Wide Web. aText in Greek with English translation on facing pages. aDescription based on print version record. zE-book aadded 11/15/16 DJW 0aAstrologyvEarly works to 1800.1 aRobbins, Frank Egleston,d1884-etranslator.08iPrint version:aPtolemy, active 2nd century.tTetrabiblos.dCambridge, Mass. : Harvard University Press, 1940z9780674994799 0aLoeb Classical Library ; v435.40uhttp://ezproxy.sebts.edu/login?url=http://www.loebclassics.com/view/LCL435/1940/volume.xml40uhttp://www.loebclassics.com/view/LCL435/1940/volume.xml aBF1680 .P86 2014EBwLCc1i198293-1001lE-BOOKmMAINrNsYtE-BOOKu11/15/2016
