[1] A series of scholarly editions of Kepler’s collected works. The overall series credit appears thus: “In Auftrag der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften – Herausgegben von der Kepler-Kommission der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaft”

[2] The present volume features editions in the original Latin of Kepler’s De Stellis (pp. 7-15); Brevis et dilucida explicatio fundamentorum harmonicorum (pp. 16-19); Ex dialogis Vincentii Galilaei De musica veteri et moderna (pp. 20-31) and Appendix ad Harmonices Mundi librum V (pp. 32-108), followed by five treatises on chronology (pp. [109]-461), closing with scholarly commentaries on the treatises included by the editors (pp. 465-543)

[3] The present volume features editions in the original Latin of Kepler’s surviving collection of 1172 manuscript horoscopes, birth details and related documents (pp. 5-422), followed by his full interpretations of horoscopes for Kaiser Rudolf II, Wallenstein, and assorted others (pp. 423-483), and various writings on theoretical astrology (pp. 493-507. It also incidentally contains Kepler’s writings on pneumatics (pp. 513-547), but concludes with commentaries on all the contents of the volume, the astrological ones (including an index to the featured names) spanning pp. [551]-664

[4] A series of publications collectively edited by A. Buchenau, F. von der Leyen, and J. Schuster

[5] A translation into modern German of the edition originally published in 1661, presumably in Latin, under the title “Strena Seu De Niue Sexangula”

[6] Comprises Bericht von den Finsternissen der Jahre 1620 / 1621; Somnium seu de Astronomia Lunari; Plutarchi libellus de facie in Luna, latine redditus; Unterricht vom H. Sacrament des Leibs und Bluts Jesu Christi; Elegia de nuptiis Huldenrici; Lessus in funere Heilandi; Elegia in obitum Tychonis Brahe; Collectanea ex Codicibus Pulkoviensibus; and Judicium Matris Kepler. Of these main sections, the Collectanea fills pp. 145-358, of which pp. 294-358 are subtitled “Astrologica” and further divided into six chapters: Kepleri Nativitas a H. Röslino scripta; de Directionibus; Judicium de Prognostico Sutorii; Prognostici in Annum 1604 fragmentum; Nativitates Imp. Rudolphi, Augusti etc.; and Wallenstenii Nativitas.

[7] Comprises Historia Astronomiae Seculo XVI; Kepleri Vita; De Kepleri Familia; De Amicis et Fautoribus Kepler; and Kepleri literarum studia et doctrina. The volume concludes with a lengthy index

[8] This edition was revised by Seck after Franz Hammer’s death in 1969

[9] Hand-dated “[19]68” by a former owner

[10] A pseudonym for Jean-François Planas, according to library records, which claim is also supported by a photocopy of a contemporaneous German article laid in to his book “Stunden-Astrologie” (q.v. below). Curiously, given his French name, his astrological works are only to be found in German

[11] Not in Worldcat or the DNB. There is a copy at Freiburg for which only an estimated date is provided, being 1920.

[12] The article apparently describes him as the descendant of a gypsy who was trained by his grandmother

[13] Copyrighted 1979, but this edition has its cover design credited to Jack Cipolla and advertising for the AFA website, showing it to date after 2005

[14] Reprinted from the 1st edition of 1982. The last date mentioned in it is 1921, in reference to the publication of an article by someone previously under discussion. This does not much help with dating the book

[15]  DNB records give 1949

[16] After the first edition of 1993, according to the copyright page. Yet the foreword belies this dating, itself being dated 28th August 1979

[17] Essentially a compendium of 26 detailed case studies of lives tragically cut short or otherwise irreversibly damaged. Subjects include a mixture of famous individuals (notably Mozart; Marilyn Monroe; Princess Diana; John F. Kennedy Jr., and Jayne Mansfield) and lesser-known ones

[18] Revised from the original “correspondence study” of 1972

[19] A celebrity birth data collection organised by chart feature, with each feature being represented by a shortlist of celebrities possessing it and the exact degrees involved in each case. Interpretations are not offered – it is left to the reader to judge the influence of the features on the groups of celebrities listed in each case

[20] To this title is suffixed on the front cover but not the inner title page ‘for Accurate Horoscope Making’

[21] The original publication date is given as 1966

[22] The original printing date is given as 1969

[23] A series of publications edited by Bill Boland, in collaboration with Justine Cullinan, Joyce Hitchcock and Cook Kimball

[24] A collection of 34 papers by different scholars including Asger Aaboe, Owen Gingerich, Bernard R. Goldstein, Paul Kunitzsch, O. Neugebauer, Davind Pingree, Julio Samsó, Noel M. Swerdlow, G. J. Toomer, J. Vernet, B. L. van der Waerden, and the editors of the present volume
