I am seeking donations to support the Astrolearn Astrology Library. This is an unofficial campaign started and managed by Peter Marko, a concerned friend, author of The Lunar Effect Bibliography. All proceeds will be redirected to Philip Graves, proprietor of the library.
Astrolearn is self-described as "an astrological learning and reference resource created and managed
Philip M. Graves, a British astrological historian who has also lived
for a year in France and over ten years in Sweden... One of the major projects underway at
Astrolearn is the establishment of a thorough online bibliography
of printed astrological literature based upon direct access to and
examination of the holdings of the archive of astrological literature
maintained and developed by Graves with the help of donations from
within the astrological and academic communities. The library now numbers approximately
7,065 discrete volumes of books and pamphlets on astrology and closely related topics, in addition to just over 10,400 individual issues of hundreds of periodicals. This tally ranks it among the most extensively stocked with printed astrological literature of all recorded libraries in Europe today." (source: Astrolearn)
A one-time goal has been set to reach US $675 to recover a potentially lost parcel of valuable shipment. You can read about this unfortunate event here: "Genuinely worried that a valuable shipment of mostly irreplaceably rare books and magazines may have got lost...". Only 27 people are need to donate $25 each to reach this goal.
Ongoing donations are also possible and encouraged to support the management and expansion of this magnificent library. The sole beneficiary of this campaign and ongoing funding drive is Philip, and I personally have nothing to gain other than the good feeling emanating from helping out a worthwhile fellow and project in need.
