The First English Translation Ever of Avraham Ibn Ezra's The Book of Nativities and Revolutions
From the translator's introduction:
Rabbi Avraham Ben Meir Ibn Ezra (1089-1164) was a renowned Jewish scholar, whose accomplishments and prolific writing encompassed Biblical exegeses, Hebrew grammar, personal, national and liturgical poetry, philosophy, mathematics, geometry, astronomy and astrology.
Ibn Ezra was born in Tudela, Spain, but spent most of his adult life wandering throughout the Jewish communities in southern Spain, North Africa, Italy, France and England. It was Italy and France (about 1140 - 1160) where he wrote his astrological works.
The Book of Nativities and Revolutions (Sefer Ha'Moladot) is the third publication in the series of English translations of Avraham Ibn Ezra's astrological works. The other two are The Beginning of Wisdom (Reshit Hokhma), ARHAT 1998, and The Book of Reasons (Sefer Ha'Te'amim), 1994 (soon to be re-issued in a revised edition by ARHAT). Together, these three, written by Ibn Ezra in this sequence, make one integral body of the basic astrological doctrine: Introduction of fundamentals, further theoretical explanations and the application to the individual birth chart.

Bibliography & References
The most important things about this book are these: It is an especially clear account of the major issues of medieval natal astrology, dealing with both practical issues and important philosophical issues. Also, scattered among the text are many jewels of medieval astrological technique not covered, or not covered as well in other texts. Ibn Ezra was not only a master astrologer, he was one of the most brilliant minds ever to practice astrology. (Rob Hand)
