[1] The date of the original edition is given as October 3rd, 1966

[2] The preface is dated 1939, but COPAC gives 1946. It would seem possible that the book was ready in 1939 but published in 1946 owing to the intervention of the Second World War.

[3] The preface to the second edition is dated December 1962, and its publication to 1963, with subsequent reprints in August 1963 and March 1964

[4] The dates of the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth reprints respective are given as March 1966, June 1966, December 1967, April 1968 and July 1969. For the dates of the earlier printings of the second edition, see the footnote corresponding to the entry for the third reprint above.

[5] “Addenda: [Zodiacal] Birthstars Inadvertently Omitted from the List”. This page was not present in the 1965 printing, but it is not known how much later it was added

[6] After the first edition of December 1st, 1967

[7] Pagination jumps from 78 to 80 but there appears to be no missing content

[8] Page 61 is backed with page 64 in this copy. Pages 62-3 are clearly missing.

[9] The preface is dated April 25th, 1956

[10] The text is continuous between pp. 38-9, the pagination being faulty

[11] After the second edition of January 1st, 1966; the first publication date of the first edition is given as December 1960, with a reprint thereof in April 1964. The preface is dated January, 1955

[12] COPAC gives 1936

[13] Over the original printed address has been pasted a label reading “Tuckers Lodge, 38 Kermoor Avenue, Sharples, Boston, Lancs.”

[14] The original copyright date is given as August 21st, 1963, with earlier reprints dated to May 196 and May 1967

[15] The copyright date of the original edition is given as 1961. The preface is dated June, 1956.

[16] Sic: aparently should have read “… and purposes of mankind…” but no “of” is present as printed

[17] The preface is dated October, 1965

[18] The preface is dated March 10th, 1959

[19] The date of the original publication is given as May 22, 1962, with a 1st reprint having followed on April 23, 1963. The preface is dated August 25th, 1955.

[20] The date for the first printing of the second edition is given as the same year. For the original edition, see under “Principles” above

[21] Page 203 is backed directly onto the first index page, which is page 209. There is no evidence of any missing content, and the error appears to be in the pagination.

[22] In this printing, page 203 is backed with a blank, which in turn is followed by page 209. As with the printing above, there is no evidence of any missing content, and the error appears to be in the pagination.

[23] Believed 1935, originally. However, the text calls for a violet line marking the ecliptic on each graph, yet here the graphs are entirely in monochrome, suggesting that there may have been a limited first printing in 1935 in which the ecliptic lines were printed in violet, then a more cheaply produced printing at a later stage, possibly but not necessarily in the same year

[24] The preface is dated August, 1954

[25] This title was also later reprinted in a cheap Indian edition, whose title was bizarrely corrupted to “Study by the stars”

[26] Over the original printed address has been affixed a label on which is printed one revised to “38 Kermoor Avenue, Sharples, Bolton, Lancs.”

[27] The original publication date is given as January 29, 1968

[28] Contents are continuous between pp. 149 and 151, the pagination being in error

[29] Library records give 1935
