[1] DNB gives 1934. Translated from the original Dutch edition of 1932, which was entitled “Astrologie: eenvoudige handleiding voor het berekenen der primaire directies”, according to Worldcat records

[2] The date for the original Dutch edition is given as 2002

[3] The author, a woman, is also referred to as Buddie Vance on p. 254

[4] It is unclear whether this date relates to the first edition or the current one.

[5] A series of publications edited by Johannes M. M. H. Thijssen and Christoph Lüthy of the University of Nijmegen, together with an international editorial board of five

[6] Pseud. of a Trioullaire (first name unknown), according to Charles de Herbais de Thun

[7] This edition appears reprinted from the second edition of 1905, which itself was belatedly published by the translator’s brother N. Visvanatha Aiyar from the manuscript of a major revision of the original edition by the translator said to have been prepared a few years before the death of the latter in 1892. The original edition was published in June 1885. Aiyar’s edition integrates English translation and extensive footnotes, without the original source text

[8] Reprinted from the original edition of 1929. This edition appears more scholarly than the earlier one of Aiyar (q. v. above) in that it integrates the original Sanskrit source text with Sastri’s translation and extensive commentary. The result is a much longer volume of 548 main pages as compared with 300 in Aiyar’s edition

[9] The front cover title is instead “Lehrbuch der Altindischen Astrologie”

[10] The name of this organisation is also represented in English translation as “The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters”. A further note indicates that Munksgaard acts as the agent of the Academy.

[11] The name of this organisation is also represented in English translation as “The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters”. A further note indicates that Munksgaard acts as the agent of the Academy.

[12] The pseudonym of Holmes Whittier Merton, who oddly appears to be credited only as the illustrator, although this interpretation depends on how one reads the extended title

[13] This work was reviewed by Frederick White, at the time of its first publication, in very favourable terms, as being by far the best writing on the subject to date (implicitly including his own). It combines the interpretation of the geocentric Sun and Moon sign combinations with that of the signs of the heliocentric planets.

[14] The ephemerides attempt to give the heliocentric sign change dates of the planets from Mercury to Neptune, as well as the geocentric sign change dates of the Moon, for each year. Thus, they are not degree-precise, but nor is the interpretative section of this book.

[15] A series of publications edited at this time by A.J. Vanderjagt of the University of Groningen, together with an Editorial Board comprising M. Colish, J.I. Israel, J.D. North, H.A. Oberman and R.H. Popkin

[16] The first 203 main pages are given over to a study. An annotated edition of the French source texts follows from pp. 223-339. Three appendices feature transcriptions of three other brief works: “The Confession of Master Jehan de Bar” (Bibliothèque Nationale fonds français ms. 25552); “Prognostication on the Life of John, Duke of Burgundy, and his Heirs, by Master Alofresin” (Madrid Biblioteca Nacional, ms. 6015); and “The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac and a Game of Numerological Divination” (Bruxelles Bibliothèque Royale, mss. 10394-10414)

[17] Combined from the original Bds. I and II of 1926

[18] Expanded from the original Bd. 3 of 1928

[19] Expanded, together with the new Band IV, from the original single-volume Bd. 4 of 1929. It is curious that the new Band III was issued a year later than the new Band IV (DNB records agree), which itself would appear to have been composed almost entirely of original content not previously published in the original Bd. 4 of 1929.

[20] Expanded, together with the new Band III, from the original single-volume Bd. 4 of 1929
