[1] Vol. II bears the same publication details as Vol. I

[2] The only date given is the original copyright date of 1923. This is a much later printing, probably from the 1960s in common with the other volumes in this set, q. v. below

[3] Ibid.

[4] Reprinted from the 1934 original.

[5] Ibid.

[6] The date of the original printing is given as 1941

[7] Ibid.

[8] Stated “published 1958”, but this appears most likely to be the date of the original printing of this volume, since the foreword is dated October 1956 by Thorndike himself, and it seems unlikely that it was rushed to release immediately after he wrote it and that two print-runs had already sold out by 1958. The true printing date seems much more likely to tally with those of the other volumes in this set, thus mid-late 1960s

[9] The affected chapters are not, however, concerned with astrology. The first is “Artificial Magic and Technology” and the second “Huygens”.

[10] As for the relevant footnote concerning the dating of Volume VII above

[11] Said to be the third volume of an unnamed corpus of medieval scientific texts sponsored jointly by the Medieval Academy of America and the University  of Chicago under the supervision of the Committee on Medieval Science of the Academy, comprising at this time the present author together with Dino Bigoniari and Richard McKeon

[12] A list of other addresses for variant forms of the company name, in Melbourne, Johannesburg, Ontario and New Jersey, follows

[13] Said to have been first published in 1905

[14] The full title as printed on the inner title page. To the front dj cover is added the following subtitle: “: the Latin text, with contemporary commentaries and English translation of the manual of astronomy most widely used from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century”.

[15] [sic]

[16] A monochrome facsimile reprint of the original bearing the following publication credit: “Printed by J. Darby, for William Bradley, and to be sold as [sic] his shop at the Three Bibles in the Minories, London, 1671”. The only recent date in the volume is a collective copyright date for the Renaissance Astrology Facsimile Editions Series, which is 2005. The present copy may have been a print-on-demand edition purchased a year or two later

[17] Apart from the title page and first page of the address to the reader, this book has been reprinted with two pages of the original book per one page of the new edition. There are some errors in this printing, with several pages of the original work repeated, viz. pp. 254-259; pp. 260-1; and pp. 270-5. But duplication is surely a lesser evil than omission

[18] There is no evidence in library records of a remotely comparably lengthy original edition. The only earlier edition recorded, variously copyrighted 1966 and 1960 / 1970 according to different library records, is said to extend to just 31 pages and to be a single volume, whereas the present two-volume edition collectively runs to about 200 pages. It could conceivably also incorporate the differently titled work listed below the second volume of the later edition in this catalogue; but even if it does, the original two-volume edition would have spanned barely 67 pages 

[19] The component internal studies are dated 1966-1968; the overall volume would seem most likely to have been published in 1968 or 1969, but could be later. The DNB estimates 1967, but this is clearly wrong

[20] On planetary influences on weather; the only part published: plans to subsequently publish a retrospectively installed Part I on general meteorological principles after the event appear to have been abandoned)
