Sibly's horoscope for Lilly

From Ebenezer Sibly's New and Complete Illustration of the Celestial Science of Astrology;
Horoscope: Plate no 9, following page 872. Natal report: p.879

WILLIAM LILLY, Student in Astrology. Born in Lat. 53 38'.
[Sibly's remarks are a paraphrase of Gadbury's notes on Lilly's chart]

I shall only give the horoscopical figure and the latitude of the planets in this nativity, because the native has given two different times of his own birth, which might be seen in his Ephemeris printed in the year 1645, and in another work of his, entitled, Christian Astrology. And therefore, as I am an enemy to every species of double-dealing, I shall content myself with pointing out the fraud, and leave others to make their remarks upon a nativity, which, having no certainty for its basis, can afford no amusement to intelligent minds.
