[1] Studies of the nativities of 27 famous individuals. The choppy pagination results from the publisher’s habit of usually (but not always) leaving the final page in each chapter unmarked, further to which there are whole-page single-sided title pages and two illustrations between every chapter

[2] The charts appear to have been coloured with red and blue aspect lines in print, from somewhat untidy hand-drawn originals

[3] A study of astrological physiognomy

[3a] After the original printing of 2011

[4] A broad-focused work aimed at a popular general audience, and scattily internally organised, with the three sections on astrology spanning pp. 17-54, pp. 69-82, and pp. 127-132

[5] A facsimile of the original full title page is included inside, but to avoid lengthy duplication I have taken the simplified title from the cover of this reprint

[6] A facsimile reprint, as issued in the early 2000s, of the original edition shown above. The republication date is given as 1970, but this copy was purchased new after 2000 and appears to have been bound up on demand or issued from recently produced stocks. It bears the publisher’s website address to the copyright page, proving that it cannot have been produced before the mid-1990s at the very earliest

[7] A series of publications founded by François Jullien and edited by Florence Bretelle-Establet and Romain Graziani, together with a large editorial committee

[8] A compendium of eight studies by different scholars

[9] The original copyright date is given as 1974

[10] Worldcat gives 1979

[11] Formally, a journal edited and published by the author through his Institute of Cosmopsychology; but this issue is effectively a standalone book and has been listed accordingly

[12] A later reprint of the above under a revised subtitle

[13] Copyrighted 1975, but this manifestly relates to an earlier printing of which this is a later reprint. The original text is signed in print January, 1972 by the author, but online evidence indicates that the 1975 edition was itself self-published by Robertson and distributed by the Astrology Center of the Northwest, so it seems reasonable to presume that, whether or not the 1975 edition was the author’s first, the AFA one is a later reprint thereof. The facsimile print quality on this copy suggests the use of the 1975 edition by the AFA in preparing its own reprint

[14] Copyrighted 1976, but this undoubtedly refers to the earliest A.F.A. printing of which this appears to be a much later reprint. The 1976 A.F.A. printing was itself seemingly a partly retitled reprint of the original publication listed above

[15] Might however be an undeclared more recent reprint, although the A.F.A. did move to Tempe in 1975

[16] A chronologically ordered attempt to update F. Leigh Gardner’s classic “Bibliotheca Astrologica” (q.v.) by listing and dating the original editions of all proven and “available” astrological books in all the languages listed, up to and including the year 2005. The criteria used for availability were that they are found in a public library, on the new book marketplace in the year 2005, at auction between June and October 2005, or on the fixed price used book marketplace between June and October 2005. The result is a very wide-ranging survey of books, and especially strong in its coverage of German-language material, although some scarce non-German works are notable by their absence or by the incorrect dating of their first editions. Further, almanacs and journals were expressly excluded from the study. In all, there are 6087 entries. Details of pagination and binding format are not provided
