[1] Chiefly a retrospective first-person discussion of the author’s personal history of working with and teaching her method of cosmobiology. Thus, quite distinctive from her previously published ten-volume series “Ine Vrabls Kosmobiologie”, which directly teaches the methods. Vol. 1 of that series is lacking from this collection; but the other nine volumes are present. She refers to those volumes on pp. 62-3 of this one, describing the missing Vol. 1 variously as “Astronomische Berechnung mit 20 Tafeln”, or “Grundlagen und Berechnungen eines Kosmobiogramms”. (The titles she lists for the various volumes are imprecise.)

[2] 1977 or later, as is evident from references to books published in 1976 and 1977 in the bibliography at the end.

[3] Presumed early-mid 1970s originally, although this printing may possibly be later in view of the binding with two volumes in one

[4] The author and editor credits for the 3. Teil are identical to those for the 2. Teil, so I have not repeated them

[5] Presumed early-mid 1970s originally, although this printing may possibly be later in view of the binding with two volumes in one

[6] Presumed early-mid 1970s

[7] Ibid.

[8] Ibid.

[9] Ibid. The dating of the concluding internal document to 1973, if indicative of the dating of this volume as a whole, would seem to imply that  the earlier volumes in the series were first published not later than that year, although there is no proof of this

[10] The foreword is dated 25 Februar, 1974. Presumed published in 1974 or soon after. (Also held, a second copy of the same volume without a proper cover, appearing to be just a roughly-bound photocopy of the original, and containing some red marginal bullet points by former owner.)

[11] Presumed mid-late 1970s

[12] An English translation (not in this collection), “Cosmic Aspects of Birth and Death”, was published by Paul Platt and Susan Riley (Golden Stone Press) in or around the late 1980s

[13] A facsimile reprint of the original published in 1911 by Rider & Company

[14] Library records give 1961 for this edition. The original printing appears to have been from 1924.

[15] Library records give 1923

[16] First published 1910. Not specifically astrological, but Waite was a towering influence in occult circles generally and his work on the tarot is therefore relevant as cultural background material to the world of 20th century astrologers and complements a number of other classic books on the tarot in this collection

[17] This edition is said to have been first published in 1971. But ‘second edition’ appears to me a misnomer in respect of that printing date, because the 1910 edition was first; and I have reasons to believe that the 1922 edition, q. v. above, was more than just a second impression of the 1910 edition, but rather a considerable expansion of it. What’s more, the present edition appears to be a direct facsimile of the 1922 edition, suggesting that the 1971 edition was a mere facsimile reprint of it.

[18] Presumed 1917 like the first printing, or soon after. The ephemerides only run to the end of 1916, and there is no variant-dated content such as advertisements to indicate a later date

[19] The author’s foreword is signed from Honolulu, Hawaii. She is referred to as ‘Mrs. Waldron’ in the preface by another writer, also based at Honolulu.

[20] “Avec la participation technique de Robert Malzac”

[21] A series of publications collectively edited by Joanne Esner. The books in this series have erratically printed pagination, with many unnumbered pages at the end of chapters and where illustrations are present. The range of pages between the earliest printed and the latest printed numbered page has been shown, but there are many between that have no page number printed, and I have not attempted to show these details

[22] The date of this printing. Copyrighted 1981
