[1] [sic] – despite the full stop, the new sentence begins with a lower-case letter

[2] Copyrighted 1901, with copyright credited to G. W. Dillingham Co. and dated 1901; but this is clearly a later, cheaper reprint of the work above, bearing in mind revised publisher identity, simpler cover design and omission of all but one of the plates in the original edition

[3] The leaf following p. 6 in the original edition was a list of plates, which has been removed from the reprint together with most of the plates themselves.

[4] This book is mostly example graphs serving a relatively small amount of text outlining several different astrological trading concepts. A reprint of an article by William D. Gann originally published in December 1909 is incidentally included

[5] With separate title page to leaf before final 30 unnumbered pages: “Super Timing 2001 Annual Forecast, By Myles Wilson Walker”. This would possibly suggest a late 2000 printing date for this copy although the main text is copyrighted 1999.

[6] A further foreword is provided by the publisher, a Madame Blondel

[7] Worldcat suggests 2001 for this printing, while indicating the original to have been published in 1978. However, the author’s own preface indicates 1971 as the date of first publication.

[8] COPAC records 1961 for this imprimatur

[9] The date of the original edition is given as 1967

[10] Issued in the mid-late 2000s

[11] A compilation of extracts on electional astrology topics from facsimiles of ten different 17th century English astrological works, as detailed below

[12] Except for those sources expressly referenced with footnotes here, all the sources used are found in full in the same editions elsewhere in this catalogue, to which entries the enquiring reader is referred. Except for Ramesey’s book, two pages of original source text are presented side-by-side on every one page of this facsimile edition. The paginations given are for the pages in the original source editions, excluding reproduced title pages (which are unpaginated). Thus, the true number of pages filled in the new, overall unpaginated edition is roughly half the number indicated, except in the case of Ramesey, where it is unchanged

[13] From the first edition of 1691, bearing the publication credit: “Printed for Matthew Street, London”

[14] From the original edition bearing the publication credit: “Printed by J. Cottrel, for Ri. Moone and Steph. Chatfield; at the seven stars in Paul’s Church-yard, and in the middle of St. Dunstan’s Church-yard, London, 1654”

[15] From the original edition bearing the publication credit: “Printed by John Windet, for William Cotten and John Tapp, London, 1609”

[16] The date of the original edition is given as 1977

[17] In this instance, only “Sonderdruck” is printed, the series title being omitted

[18] The original edition is presumed to be from the mid-1960s (after 1963); but the present appears to be a much later undeclared, albeit official, facsimile reprint

[19] Presumed late 1950s or early 1960s

[20] DNB records give 1954

[21] Not in DNB. Swiss library records give 1957; German library records estimate”about 1960″
