[1] A native of Vienna, Austria; Professor of Assyriology at the Oriental Institute, University of Chicago, since 1954

[2] After the first of 1964

[3] After the first edition of 1906 and second edition of 1912

[4] Dated thus, but this copy has been bound up with later advertising matter from 1929. The 1920 edition of this title would appear from library records to be the first under the present name, the original name of what was originally a separate book having been altered to make a coherent two-volume set. I could not conclusively determine the date or name of the original edition of this volume, but the only obvious candidate in library records is “Problemen der modernen Astronomie”, first published by the same publisher, Teubner, in 1911, although that was a longer book at 156 pages. It might have been condensed slightly in the cause of producing a coherent two-volume set for this edition

[5] The text of all parts of this work except the appendix appears in between six and seven languages. In most cases, the text is brief enough to appear in all six or seven languages on the same pages. Where it is more extensive, it appears on successive pages in the different languages. In all cases, the text is found in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and one Asian script that looks to me like non-joined-up Sanskrit. Most contents (but not all) also appear in Chinese. Two additional translators are credited in the scripts in the suspected Sanskrit and Chinese, neither of which I can read; consequently, I have not been able to identify their names

[6] This book teaches an unorthodox astrological system, including many circular chart diagrams whose appearance is wholly unfamiliar from a western astrological perspective

[7] Comprises pp. 201-310 of the present volume. Caroti states that the present edition was in his thesis supervised by Professor P. (Paola) Zambelli and also discussed in June 1973 by E. (Eugenio) Garin and P. Rossi at the Faculty of Humanities and Philosohy (Facolta di Lettere e Filosofia) in Firenze. He says that the text in his possession cannot be considered definitive and that one scholar regarded it as an incomplete summary. The original text is dated to 1370, when it was reportedly discussed in Paris. Caroti extends credit to a Prof. Filippo di Bendetto for having revised the text available to him.

[8] An academic journal directed (at that time) by Ét. Gilson de l’Académie française; M.-D. Chenu, O. P., Maître en Théologie; and M.-T. d’Alverny, Directeur de Recherche au C.N.R.S..

[9] In all this volume includes two studies and three texts, of widely differing lengths and subject-matter.

[10] OCLC suggests 1906; but a pencilled note to foot of title page claims 1920. It seems possible, though it is unclear and therefore uncertain, that whoever wrote that note had researched the exact printing date of this issue with reference to the publisher and its history

[11] Title page dated 1893 but printing and copyright entry notice on reverse indicate 1894

[12] NB: This edition is substantially altered and reset from the original

[13] Library records give 1935

[14] Library records give 1932
