[1] Translated from the Latin edition of Joachim Heller of Nuremberg, as published in 1549. Hand notes that that edition was edited from an earlier Latin translation by John of Seville from the Arabic original

[2] After the original printing of 1998

[3] With separate title pages specific to the original book being translated to p. [1] of every separately paginated main section.

[4] Facsimile edition, translation and study of the surviving fragment of Masha’allah’s otherwise lost book “On Conjunctions, Religions, and Peoples”

[5] Initial copyright dates of 1992 and 1995 are given, but the first page of the synopsis that follows is copyrighted 1996 and signed October 1996, indicating 1996 as the most likely publication date for this printing

[6] The original copyright date is stated as 1977, but this clearly a much more recent printing

[7] The copyright is given as 1977, but this appears to be a later printing

[8] Based on the common source of this set, presumed Joan Moreland – see inclusion with Book 6 below

[9] Also held, a later printing of this volume in which the text has been reset over very slightly fewer pages, and yet as a consequence of the original pagination being retained for the final two pages, the pagination leaps from p. 64 to 66 at the end of the volume, but with no  loss of content. The later printing is distinguished by the advertising for Books 1-9 in the series on the rear cover, whereas the early one advertises only Books 1-3 there

[10] The same advertisement appears in print on the final page of Book I in this series, q. v. above

[11] The series title is not explicitly stated in this volume, but the belonging of the present volume to the series of this name is clear from both its own context and external advertising for it

[12] Copyrighted 1994 and published by Aquarian-Cancerian Publications then; but this copy, purchased new in the 2010s, is evidently a later facsimile reprint, bearing added A-C Tapes advertising pages including web and email addresses that would not have existed as early as 1994. It seems likely that A-C Tapes itself is an evolution of Aquarian-Cancerian Publications, and that the latter no longer formally exists since Sophia Mason’s untimely passing. Its address is given as 3258 West 129 Street, Cleveland, OH, at difference from the original publication address reproduced in facsimile at the start of the volume

[13]Dorothy Hughes was a well-known astrologer. The donor is a Fern Wheeler

[14] Quite likely to be the notes of Dorothy Hughes although not expressly identified as such

[15] A print-on-demand facsimile-based reprint, issued March 2009, of the original dissertation

[16] I have not yet been able to paginate this because it remains shrink-wrapped within temporary card end-supports awaiting binding
