[1] The date of the first is given as October, 1968. The present volume however appears to be a bound monochrome photocopy of the original second printing of the book, unless of course that is the manner in which the second printing itself was produced from the first. James Eshelman notes in his introduction to “The New Instant Astrologer” (1976) (q. v. under Eshelman, above) that Stanton and Miyai’s book had reached a fourth printing in 1973 and that that one was “issued by the University of Texas” in connection with a Community College associated with the university, in which it was used. However, he adds that the book had “never been intended for wide circulation”; and indeed it is my observation that all four original printings are now very scarce on the free market

[2] Pseud. of Eugène Jacob

[4] In the introduction to this work, the author explains it as a response to the strong criticism he received for his earlier work “Les Mystères de l’Horoscope” (q.v.) on account of its popularisation of onomantic astrological methods (as compared with “real astrology”). However, even the present work includes significant geomantic content

[5] B.N.F. gives 1897

[6] Address as given on title page and in internal advertising

[7] Address as given on pictorial front cover and in advertising on rear cover

[8]This copy bears the cover price of 20 centimes and is clearly, from the more elbaorate multi-colour cover artwork, the original edition; believed published 1900s. However, the contradictory internal and external publisher’s addresses raise further questions, indicating the possibility of a second issue of the original edition.

[9] This copy bears the higher printed cover price of 30 centimes, which together with the fact of the changed address and simplified cover design would indicate a somewhat later date of publication than the above edition. The contents appear unchanged except for the different advertisements

[10] As well as being simplified in terms of the range of colours used, this edition bears a completely different front cover pictorial design from the original edition listed above

[11] Library records show  1892

[12] Presumed a 1920s or 1930s reprint of the above

[13] Dated 2005; but this may relate to an earlier printing

[14] A print-on-demand facsimile-based reprint, issued March 2009, of the original dissertation

[15] I have not yet been able to paginate this because it remains shrink-wrapped within temporary card end-supports awaiting binding

[16] A male author, although Jess is often used as an abbreviation for Jessica too.

[16a] A series of publications collectively edited by Charles Burnett and Sacha Stern, assisted by an editorial board comprising twelve other scholars

[16b] A collection of seventeen studies by different scholars, including Francesca Rochberg, Alexander Jones, and the editor. Seven of the studies are specifically related to astrology; other topics include astronomy, calendars and the transmission of knowledge

[17] Hans Georg was born only in 1912

[18] A series of publications founded in 1905 by August Sauer and Carl v. Kraus, and subsequently edited by Herbert Cysarz and Erich Geirach, but edited at the time of publication of this volume by Ernst Schwarz and Erich Trunz before the named present editors took it over. It is described as the publication series of the Germanistische Schule of the Deutschen Universität in Prague

[19] A series of publications collectively edited at this time by Univ.-Prof. F. Bilabel in Heidelberg, and Univ-Prof. A. Grohmann in Prag
