    Nostradamus(Author)
The predictions of Nostradamus have been continuously in print since his death and count, alongside the Bible, as one of the two best selling books in publishing history. Today, interest has never been higher, with claims that he foretold recent events and fears that even worse is to come. But prophecy is a tricky business at best, and much of what is claimed for Nostradamus is based on mistranslation, over-optimistic interpretation or corrupt texts. This translation by a professional linguist offers a literary verse translation of all the original prophecies and identifies their historical sources. It identifies the original omen books, illustrated from the original sources and offers reports of these omens in contemporary English translations.

A revelation. I am amazed by the translations’ objectivity and refusal to interpret the prophecies beyond what the text suggests. -- New Age RetailerA significant effort to reveal the written sources underlying the prophecies of Nostradamus -- Dr Elmar R.
