Mother Shipton, known as the Yorkshire Prophetess, is the subject of this book. Little is known about her life, and we cannot even be sure that she existed. She was supposedly incredibly ugly, and she was apparently able to levitate. Mother Shipton made her most famous prophecy in 1530: she foretold that Cardinal Wolsey, the new Archbishop of York, would see the city from afar but never reach it. Wolsey was arrested on his approach to York and died soon afterwards. Shown here: title-page
