Publishing history of Raphael’s

A Longstanding Tradition

The oldest of its kind, Raphael’s Ephemeris has a rich history, being published by W. Foulsham & Co. (London) since 1836. Founded by William Foulsham in 1819, Foulsham Publishing is also the current publisher of Old Moore’s Almanack, an annual publication first published in 1697.

Raphael’s Ephemeris was first issued as part of an almanac entitled The Prophetic Messenger in the early nineteenth century. However, several astrologers around that time mysteriously used the angelic name ‘Raphael’ in order to maintain privacy.
