[1] Worldcat suggests 1970, but this is certainly an undeclared later reprint since the AFA did not move to Tempe before 1975

[2] Online records claim 1986, which appears credible

[3] A series of publications edited by W. L. Idema in co-operation with P. K. Bol, D. R. Knechtges, E. S. Rawski, E. Zürcher, and H. T. Zurndorfer

[4] A seeming offprint from  Volumen Nonum, 1950 of Gandavensis, Georgius Sarton, ed. ‘Osiris: Commentationes de scientiarum et eruditionis historia rationeque’

[5] A work divided into three parts: “The Occult Philosophy in Renaissance and Reformation”; “The Occult Philosophy in the Elizabethan Age” and “The Occult Philosophy and Rosicrucianism and Puritanism. The Return of the Jews to England”. Among the subjects of the study are Pico della Mirandola, Henry Cornelius Agrippa, Albrecht Dürer, Jon Dee, Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, and John Milton

[6] The author is styled on the dj rear flap of this volume as “Frances A. Yates, O.B.E., D.Lit. (London)” and described as a “Fellow of the British Academy, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, an Honorary Fellow of the Warburg Institute, and of Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford”.

[7] A series of publications edited by Christopher Cullen, collectively dealing with the history of the practice of science, technology and medicine in East Asia

[8] Pseud. of Morrison, Richard

[9] Whether or not the cloth itself is original is hard to tell, but it is certainly old

[10] A more elaborately formulated pseudonym of Richard Morrison. One mistake made in F. Leigh Gardner’s Bibliotheca Astrologica (q. v.) was to attribute these works from the early 1860s to Morrison’s successor as Zadkiel, Alfred John Pearce, who in fact did not take up the pseudonym until a year or so after Morrison’s death in 1874 – and then did so only in editing Zadkiel’s Almanac

[11] In this instance, as well as in the case of the reprint of the present work as part of the compendium listed immediately beneath, there is no evidence presently available to support the identity of the author being the genuine Zadkiel, Richard Morrison. It would seem more likely to be a case of copycat marketing with an unrelated author responsible for this work

[12] This expressly dated first edition is not recorded in library records on COPAC, which show only undated reprints

[13] With separate title page to [p. 141]: Sibly, the Great Astrologer “The Popular Fortune Teller: Contains Never-Failing Means for Ladies to Obtain Good Husbands, and Husbands Good Wives; Interpretation of Dreams, Foretelling Future Events and Contingencies. Also, the Art of Divination, by the Sciences of Astrology, Physiognomy, Palmistry, Moles, Cards, &c.” (same publication details)

[14] Believed from internal advertisements at the end to be probably from the 1870s or 1880s in this printing of the combined edition. Title to front board of this combined edition is more simply ‘Zadkiel’s Dream Book’, while spine reads ‘Zadkiel’s Dream Book and Fortune Teller’

[15] Pseud. of Benjamine, Elbert, q. v.

[16] This is clearly a later printing than those of most of the other volumes, because of the unusual overall title page and the unusual presence of ISBN numbers on it and on the title pages to some of the component documents
