[1] There is no overall internal title page, so the limited details for the overall publication are taken from the front cover. The two separate internal title pages are dated 1970 and 1971 respectively, but these correspond to the publication dates of the original standalone editions of each separate component volume, of which this is a very much later combined facsimile reprint.

[2] A reprint of the edition first published in 1976

[3] The date of the original copyright is given as 1981.

[4] It is not known whether or not this is an undeclared later printing of this volume, but the cover is of relatively good quality compared with the reprints of the other volumes in the series in this collection, so it seems likely to be the original. It was purchased new around 2005.

[5] A series of publications edited at this time by Lawrence I. Conrad, Dominik Wujastyk and Paul U. Unschuld, together with an editorial board comprising Donald J. Harper, Guy Attewell and Ronald E. Emmerick

[6] The catalogue features works on astronomy (pp. 1-55); mathematics (pp. 57-67); divination (pp. 69-117); and astrology (pp. 119-332), as well as short sections on a few other subjects

[7] A series of publications edited by Jonathan Katz

[8] This catalogue chiefly covers texts on astronomy, mathematics, divination, genethlialogy, muhurta, and prasna. There are also a few other mischellaneous categories in the closing main pages (pp. 140-7).

[9] A series of publications by the Istituto Italiano per l’Africa e l’Oriente that was founded by Giuseppe Tucci and directed (at this time) by Gherardo Gnoli

[10] A series edited by Bruce Chandler

[11] A series edited by Jan Gonda

[12] Pingree’s doctoral dissertation is divided into ten chapters essentially constituting separate essays, with additional major bibliographical appendices to two chapters: 1: The Dates of Sphujidvaja, Yavanesvara, and Minaraja; 2: The Origins of Greek Horoscopy (pp. 33-81); Appendix: Notes on Western Astrologers (pp. 82-165); 3: Early Indian Astrology (pp. 166-174); Appendix: Notes on Indian Astrologers (pp. 175-215); 4: The Iconography of the Signs of the Zodiac (pp. 216-234); 5: The Iconography of the Horas (pp. 235-260); 6: The Iconography of the Decans (pp. 261-303); 7: De Signis (pp. 304-388); 8: The Iconography of the Planets (pp. 389-426); 9: De Astris Errantibus (pp. 427-531); 10: The Dodecatopus (pp. 532-555)

[13] As issued, in untrimmed photocopier facsimile quality. Awaiting professional binding

[13a] A compendium of 33 previously published academic essays by the late author, drawn from many different academic journals and some other academic compendia. The contents are grouped into six sections: General Studies; Mesopotamia; The Classical World; India; Islam; and Byzantine, Medieval, and Renaissance Europe. The subjects include astrology, astronomy and mathematics, in keeping with Professor Pingree’s lifetime scholarly interests. The editor is his widow

[14] Pseud. of Comte Pierre Vincenti

[15] Rebound thus, without original paper covers, as was common practice in 20th century France

[15a] Despite its unprepossessing title, this is essentially a Sun sign primer (pp 3-60), densely typeset with many lines per page. The last eight pages deal with crystal gazing and scrying

[16] A chronologically ordered annotated catalogue of the books at the library “Carlo Vigano” on astrology. Those listed range in date from 1550 to 1650, as the title suggests.

[17] The pagination of this volume is peculiarly erratic, with several pages commanding dual page numbers, others being marked by numbers followed by the letter ‘a’, and multiple instances of blanks followed by the pagination continuing as though there had not been blanks present

[18] After the original hardcover edition published by Transworld Publishers in 1988
