[0] COPAC records 1950

[1] This series of three volumes was a posthumous compilation of the various separate booklets and other writings produced by the author in his lifetime.

[2] The BL indicates 1954-5 for the second editions of all volumes in this series, but does not differentiate between them or hold records of the first edition dates

[3] Ibid.

[4] Ibid.

[5] Ibid.

[6] Ibid.

[7] Ibid.

[8] BL gives 1954-5 for the edition contemporaneous with the other books advertised at the back of this copy, but comments that the original edition of the present title was published in 1949

[9] B.L. gives 1965

[10] A list of foreign publishers follows thus: New York: G. P. Putnam’s Sons; Bombay, Calcutta, Madras: Macmillan and Co., Ltd.; Toronto: J. M. Dent and Sons, Ltd.; Tokyo: The Maruzen-Kabushiki-Kaisha

[11] The only instance of the much-deprecated word ‘Astrologist[s]’ in any title in this catalogue, perhaps a function of the editor Michael Whitty’s broad-based interest in divinatory topics. The authors of the predictions within include Frank T. Allen; John B. Earley; Llewellyn George; John Hazelrigg; Frederick White; four little-known names, and one ‘Incog’

[12]The binder houses the workbooks for six successive correspondence courses. NB: These workbooks do not appear for the most part to constitute lessons, although those from Course 3 onwards do include sketchy outlines of various interpretative teachings; the main instructive material or at least some kind of overarching study plan guide is presumed to have been separately provided in another format as part of the correspondence course – possibly cassette tapes although this is not readily apparent

[13] The manual to a separate cassette-based correspondence course, although included in this binder. I have described it more fully at the end of the listing of the six main courses that are properly bound in to the binder

[14] NB: this is a manual only, not including the originally accompanying cassette tapes

[15] A series of publications collectively edited by Fritz Werle
