William Lilly (1602-81), the most important English astrologer of his time, was a great influence on modern fortune telling. He published an annual almanac that sold 30,000 in 1659. In 1652 he published images of a city on fire; he was later called in for questioning by the Parliamentary committee investigating the causes of the Great Fire of London. This portrait was the frontispiece to his 'Christian Astrology' of 1647.
