[1] The contents of this work on the cultivation of hidden mental powers are mostly non-astrological, but one page is astrological, and the remainder gives insight into the author’s broader occult and self-help interests and thought

[2] After the original edition dated to 1921 by the DNB

[3] “Berechnet und zusammengestellt von…”

[4] With separate t. p. to [p. 73]: “Anhang – 1. Verzeichnis der Geographischen Positionen zum Gebrauche für die Astrologie”. With separate t. p. to [p. 83]: “2. Proportional Logarithmen zum Gebrauche für die Berechnung der Direktionen”

[5] German library records give 1910

[6] Swiss library records give 1910 for this original edition. There was also a slightly expanded undated second edition by the author that ran to 151 main pages

[7] Swiss library records give 1911

[8] After the first edition of 1905, which is recorded in Swiss library records as running to just 220 pages

[9] With separate t.p. to [p. 41]: “Die Hilfshoroskope”

[10] German library records give 1910

[11] German library records give 1912

[12] These are presumed meant for use with the colour chart whose column widths their unitary spacings match, but each is in a considerably longer overall format

[13] The translation into English in itself is credited to Weaver by Charles Jayne in his foreword

[14] To these credits on the title page are further added on the copyright page those of an overarching production team: “Editor-in-Chief: Philip M. Rideout with Dodie Edmands and Jeanette Mall”. This would appear to have been quite a high-budget production

[15] The copyright to the English translation and adaptation is credited instead to Librairie Larousse, U.S.A., Inc.. It is apparent from the dj rear flap that Larousse was by this time a subsidiary company within the Mc-Graw-Hill Book Company

[16] No further printing date is indicated, but the original copyright of 1977 is credited to Librairie Larousse

[16a] One of a very small number of modern secondary texts seeking to encapsulate the whole of Hellenistic Astrology on a technical level, following on from Joseph Crane’s ‘Astrological Roots: the Hellenistic Legacy’ (q.v.). Twelve themed chapters spanning some 420 pages are given over to the treatment of techniques (pp. 165-589 inclusive). Additionally, Brennan devotes about 130 pages to the history of Hellenistic astrology (pp. 11-141 inclusive), including discussions of thirty known and legendary astrologers; and a further 22 pages to its philosophy (pp. 143-164)

[17] CCFR and Worldcat records give 1939

[18] A self-fulfilling prophecy – the ugly black stamp mars the look of an otherwise near-flawless copy

[19] Purports to be a presentation of Morin’s method of astrology

[20] This copy bears a purple stamp beneath the printed address reading: ‘Miss Broughton, (Daughter of Dr. L. D. Broughton,) Publisher of Elements of Astrology etvc. Has Removed to 126 E. 101st St., N. Y. bet. Lexington and Park Aves. Consultations, Horoscopes Written, Nativities Calculated & Astrological Books for Sale’

[21] A facsimile reprint of the very copy of the 1898 edition featured above. It was prepared by the late David Roell from my original copy as it stopped by his premises in transit to me
