[1] A date around 1932 is strongly indicated by internal evidence. One of the articles, about the film star Ery Bos (born 3 October 1908), and featuring a picture of her as a young woman, indicates a date in the early-to-mid 1930s. Her films were released in the narrow period of 1932 to 1934. Another refers to Marlene Dietrich’s film “Die blonde Venus”, released in 1932. Another features a letter to Sachs dated December 12, 1932

[2] Said to have been translated from the German edition published in 1997 by Wilhelm Goldmann Verlag, München

[3] A strange device, but apparently designed that way. The card covers themselves are without print and presumably were not designed to be seen

[4] A compendium of translations by Dykes, consisting of Sahl’s “The Introduction”, “The Fifty Judgments”, “On Questions”, “On Elections” and “On Times”; and Masha’Allah’s “On the Knowledge of the Motion of the Orb”; “On the Roots of Revolutions”; “Chapter of the Rains of the Year”; “On Rains”; “On the Revolution of the Years of the World”; “On the Significations of the Planets in a Nativity”; “On Nativities”; “On the Interpretation of Cognition”; “On Hidden Things”; “Book on Reception”; and “What the Planets SIgnify in the Twelve Domiciles of the Circle”

[4a] A series of publications edited at this time by Jonathan Barry, Willem de Blécourt and Owen Davies

[4b] Despite the lack of its mention in the title, astrology is central to the focus of this volume, which comprises eight studies by the author, nearly all of which are directly concerned with astrology. Subjects include the work and thoughts of Abu Ma’Shar, Al-Kindi, the Picatrix, Marsilio Ficino, Pico della Mirandola, John Dee, and (in a combined study) Albertus Magnus, Thomas Aquinas and Roger Bacon.

[5] Pseud. of Émile-Dominique Nourry (1870-1935). His surname is misrepresented by De Herbais de Thun as ‘Nourrit’. This work was posthumously published through his publishing house, presumably by his successor J. Thiébaud, to judge from the printed legend

[6] The date of the original printing is given as 1976

[7] It is dated 1974 but in suspiciously immaculate condition with glossy covers, and therefore suspected of being a much later undeclared AFA reprint in common with other pamphlets by these authors

[8]Falsely dated 1974, but clearly a later printing as the AFA had not moved to this address before 1975

[9] The date of the original printing is given as 1977

[10] Copyrighted 1972, but this is unbelievable in application to this copy in new, glossy condition; it is therefore suspected of being an undeclared recent AFA reprint

[11]  Copyrighted 1975. This copy, however, is suspected to be a much later undeclared monochrome facsimile reprint, perhaps by the AFA

[12] Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the Department of Middle East and Asian Studies, Columbia University

[13] The copyright date of 2007 presumably relates to the original printing

[14] But stamped to upper margin of final blank: M. B. Salley, 546 West 147th Street, New York, N. Y..
