[2] DNB records 1941 for the first edition

[3] A collection of Bezza’s Italian translations of ancient, medieval and Renaissance astrological texts grouped by theme, with multiple writers’ takes on each theme featured successively. Many of the sources are obscure and otherwise unavailable in modern editions in any language. This first volume has eleven themed chapters. Featured writers include Conrad Rauchfuss; al-Biruni; Bartholomew of Parma; Cardano; Ptolemy; Rhetorius; Olympiodorus; Ficino; John of Eschenden; Abu Ma’Sar; Orpheus; Paulus Alexandrinus; Vettius Valens; Censorinus; Nicomachus of Gerasa; Manele Briennio; Placido Titi; al-Khwarizmi; Ibn Ezra; Andalò di Negro; Firmicus Maternus; al-Qabisi; Antoine de Villon; Johannes Stadius; Anonymous of 379; Cassius Dio; Theophilus of Edessa; Abraham Bar Hiyya (Savasorda); John Lydus; Aulus Gellius; Philo of Alexandria; Alberto Marchesi; Giuliano di Laodicea; Hephaestio of Thebes; Palchus; Agostino Nifo; Pierre d’Ailly; Pedro Ciruelo; Levi ben Gerson; Masha’Allah; Johannes de Muris; Firmin de Beauval; and Conrad Heingartner

[4] This second volume has six themed chapters and an appendix. Featured writers include many of those previously sampled in the first volume, and additionally Proclus; Leonardo Qualea; Johannes Virdung; Ali ibn Ridwan; Nabod; Bonatti; John X of Consantinople; and Nizami Aruzi

[5] An Italian translation of the first book of Ptolemy’s Tetrabiblos, with lengthy Italian commentary including many tables and diagrams

[6] After the first edition of 1990

[6a] A series of publications collectively directed by Ornella Pompeo Faracovi

[7] The copyright date (and thus presumed original printing date) is given as 1971; the date of the second printing is not specified here

[8] NB: Many of the blanks in this volume are numbered as though they were real pages and headed ‘Additional Entries’ as though to invite the reader to fill them in with his / her own correspondences. In this copy they remain blank. They have not been counted as pages in my pagination scheme

[9] A paperback reprint of the above

[10] Copyrighted 1986; but the reference on the title page to Vito’s death in October 1991 demonstrates this to be a much later printing

[11] “A cura di Daniele Bini”. The credit list continues: “testi di Ernesto Milano, Grazia Mirti, Leandro Ventura, Anna Rosa Venturi; schedi di Milena Luppi, Paola Di Pietro, Paola Ortolani”.

[12] A series of publications directed by Ernesto Milano, all published by Il Bulino edizione d’arte. Whether or not the other volumes are also connected with the Minostero per i Beni Culturali or the Biblioteca Estense Universitaria di Modena (see following footnote) is not clear. The advertising on the rear dj flap for the earlier volumes in the series does not mention either of them.

[13] A further credit at the top of the title page, of unclear relevance, reads: “Minostero per i Beni Culturali: Ufficio Centrale per i Beni Librari, gli Istituti Culturali e l’Editoria; Biblioteca Estense Universitaria di Modena”.

[14] A compendium of twelve articles by three authors, comprising one by Fritz Werle entitled “Die kosmische Weltanschauung des Paracelsus” (pp. 12-29); ten by J. Strebel, and one by B. de Telepnef

[15] NB: content is continuous between pp. 6 and 9 of the final part and between pp. 12 and 13 of same.

[16] NB: A partial retyped edition only of the original 17th century work

[17] OCLC tentatively gives 1909
