Old Moore's Almanack
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (June 2012)|
Old Moore’s Almanack is an astrological almanac which has been published in Britain since 1697.
The first edition in 1697 contained weather forecasts. In 1700 Moore published Vox Stellarum, The Voice of the Stars, containing astrological observations; this was also known as Old Moore’s Almanack. It was a bestseller throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, selling as many as 107,000 copies in 1768.
The almanac is still published annually by W. Foulsham & Company Limited, giving predictions of world and sporting events, as well as more conventional data such as tide tables. It claims to have predicted the September 11 attacks.
The almanac is not to be confused with Old Moore's Almanac, an Irish publication dating from approximately the same time.
