The Bloody almanack : to which England is directed, to fore-know what shall come to passe, by that famous astrologer, M. John Booker : being a perfect abstract of the prophecies proved out of Scripture, by the noble Napier, Lord of Marchistoun in Scotland : with additions by John Napier( )

On the title-page to this tract is a woodcut, representing two stars with clouds about them. Above is "The guide of Astrologers"; "Astra regunt homines, sed regit astra Deus" appears below. Under the latter inscription is a half-length figure of a bearded man, with a staff in his left hand (? Booker). Near him is the Devil, holding a two-thonged whip. Behind the Devil is "The Crosse of Rome" a carriage, in which are seated the pope, a pilgrim holding a cross, and a naked human figure with a cross on the forehead. Below this is "Rome" a city with churches. On the right of Booker, if it be he, is "London" a city. Above the last is "The Joy of England", i.e. a king (probably King Charles the First) on a throne with two councillors seated at either hand, and two men kneeling at a bar before him. On the king's left is "The destruction of the World" showing a curtain half withdrawn from before a dark field or ground, on which lie many feathers or fallen leaves. A skull and cross-bones occupy the lower corner of the woodcut, below the last

English translation by Edward Wright, one of the greatest English writers on navigation and is important as it was checked and approved by Napier and contains a special admonition relating to the change to decimal logarithms which is not in the original. It also contains a new dedication to Charles I and preface by Napier, as well as a new preface by Briggs, and an explanation by Briggs of an instrumental table for finding proportional parts, which had been invented by Edward Wright (Gaskell, c 5, Feb 1992)
