[1] A facsimile reprint, issued in the early-mid 2000s, of the original bearing the imprint: “Printed for the Company of Stationers, and H. Blunden at the Castle in Corn-hill, London, 1653”

[2] Title to front board is misrepresented as ‘Anima Astrologia or the Astrologer’s Guide’; spine legend is ‘The Astrologer’s Guide – Bonatus’

[3] A facsimile reprint of the edition of 1886, q. v. above, but with the original publisher’s advertisements removed and replaced by those for Health Research publications

[3a] Internally, beyond the first printed leaf, this is a direct monochrome facsimile of the 1886 edition

[4] A facsimile reprint of the original bearing the imprint: Printed by T. B. for John Partridge and Humfrey Blunden, and to be sold in Blackfriers going into Carterlane, and at the Castle in Cornhill, London, 1648

[5] A duplication of the previous four leaves; should not be present

[6] The third-from-last leaf of the index is missing on this copy

[7] But the first and only edition in this form – although some copies were reportedly issued in a leather binding, concurrently with the cloth edition.

[8] A portrait of Lilly reproduced from the original painting at the Ashmolean Museum. Not present in the original editions of the book.

[9] These added contents not present in the original are introductions by Patrick Curry and Geoffrey Cornelius

[10] “Retyped and annotated by Deborah Houlding”. Also, from the acknowledgements page: “acknowledgement must go to David McCann and David Plant, for their constant assistance and contributions to the footnotes and explanatory material”.

[11] After the first edition thus of Easter, 2004. Roell’s edition is reset in modern type (except for the prefatory pages, which are in facsimile form), with modernised spelling, and astrological charts in both facsimile and modernised format.

[12] Hill extends acknowledgements ‘to Kim Farnell, Deborah Houlding and Olivia Barclay, for the their constant assistance and contributions to the footnotes and anotations”.

[13] In this volume, the overall title “Christian Astrology” appears only on the front cover, and not on the inner title page at all.

[14] After the first edition thus of 2004. Reset in modern type, with modern charts. The pagination scheme is integrated loosely with that of Roell’s volume for Books I and II, q.v. above

[15] A facsimile reprint of the original printed for the Company of Stationers, and H. Blunden, at the Castle in Cornhill, London, 1652

[16] A facsimile reprint (post-2000) of the original printed by John Raworth, for John Partridge, and to be sold at the Sun in Paul’s Church yard, London, 1644

[16a] The text has been completely retyped and reset, allowing a higher density of words per page than on the original edition. Aside from her ten-page introduction, Briggs contributes 149 scholarly footnotes to this edition

[17] A facsimile reprint of an original whose publisher is not specified here; the foreword is dated 1651. Library records show the first edition to have borne the imprint: “Printed for Humfrey Blunden, dwelling at the sign of the Castle in Corn-hill, London, 1651”. But there were further editions in 1653 and 1655; and it is not apparent which one this facsimile reprint was based upon

[18] With separate subtitle page to main p. 1 of the second part: ‘Several Observations Upon the Life and Death of Charles Late King of England’. It is possible though unclear that a fuller title page may be missing prior to the prefatory pages to the second part of the volume. The running header is ‘Observations on the LIfe and Death of King Charles’, and there is notably no mention of King James in either header or subtitle despite the promise in the overall title page for the volume
