[1] A sticker to front dj flap reads ‘Distributed by Llewellyn Publications Ltd. 8921 National Boulevard, Los Angeles 34, California’

[2] A revision of “1000 Aphorisms on Love and Marriage”, as published in 1959, q.v.above. Said to have been “updated and revised thoroughly”, with some chapters having been “rearranged, combined and expanded”. Ashutosh Ojha, the credited co-author of this edition, is the son of the original author

[2a] The publication credits imply that this title has been selected from one already in print, and that this is the first paperback edition; but the original publication details are not provided, and no evidence can be found in library records of the source, or indeed of any earlier printed book by Oken. A compilation of previously published magazine articles would be one possibility

[2b] The content of this edition appears identical to that of the 1971 edition featured under the title without ‘Star’ above

[3] It is not clear how these figures have been derived, since the number of plates is 57, excluding those on ordinary paper in the text, which corresponds correctly to the index of pages with one exception: the promised ‘Chariot’ at p. 69 is only a small in-text illustration and not a plate.

[4] In this case, the tally corresponds to the number of plates including the frontispiece

[5] Part of ‘The Wisdom of the East Series’ edited by L. Cranmer-Byng and Dr. S. A. Kapadia, an extensive series of short books on oriental themes for English-speaking audiences. The present volume is not inherently astrological but exemplifies Sepharial’s broader scholarly interests in ancient oriental culture

[6] This work, though not specifically astrological, includes one diagram containing astrological glyphs and is contextually important as an example of the other esoteric interests of Sepharial

[6a] Their photocopied signatures appear at the top of the first leaf of photocopied text, indicating that they were on the original source document, and were probably identifying themselves as its authors. A photocopied handwritten note in the handwriting of McEvers also appears on the outer margin of leaf 27. A reference to ‘The authors of this series of lessons’ in the typed text of the first leaf strongly supports the hypothesis that Oliver and McEvers were indeed the authors, since multiple authorship is unusual for astrological lectures

[7] The actual text contents of this pamphlet extend to just thirteen pages, since the verso of every main page is blank. The nominal pagination is therefore misleading, unless of course this is an anomalous defective copy and the versos are supposed to feature continuations of the zodiac sign depictions commenced on the previous pages

[8] A curious design feature of this book is that alternate pages from 12-58 have each decorated with different blocks of colour on paper strips that have been glued to the pages

[9] As issued. The printed side faces down, but, by design, parts of its printed contents can be seen through holes cut in the front cover as it turns

[10] The date of the original printing is given as January, 1965

[11] Dated 1999; but it is unclear if this relates only to the first printing of the second edition
