[1] NB: for the tables promised by the title, see the separate entry for the separately bound volume ‘Supplement to Placidus de Titus’: they are not included in this one. Note also that only 32 plates (inc. frontis.) are present in this volume, as compared with the 36 promised, but the count of 32 corresponds with other copies advertised

[2] NB: in past bibliographies, the title has often been misrepresented based on the inner subtitle page headed “Quaestionum Physiomathematicarum Libri Tres”, which appears on the 5th leaf

[3] Library records give 1650 for this first edition

[4] Library records show 1814

[5] A facsimile reprint, issued early 2000s, of another copy of the original edition above, but without the tables at the end of the volume or the plate at the beginning

[5a] With added half-title page to upper half of p. 1: ”Tabulae Primi Mobilis cum Thesibus ad Theoricen, & Canonibus ad praxim, additis In rerum demonstrationem, & supputationum Exemplum Triginta clarissimorum natalium Thematibus, authore D. Placido de Titis Perusino Olivetano. – Theses Ex Coelesti Philosophia Authoris desumptae, ex Primo Libro”. With added half-title to upper part of p. 56: “Triginta Mirabilium Exemplorum Themata Ad rerum veritatem, & Canonum supputationem exposita”. With added title page to [p. 141]: “Tabulae primi Mobilis D. Placidi de Titis Perusini”

[6] The preface and ‘Stellingen’ annex of this work are both written in Dutch; the foreword and main text are in German

[7] Library records give 1938

[8] Another novel centered around De Wohl’s character “Dr. Zodiac”, as previously featured in his novel “Introducing Doctor Zodiac”, q. v. above

[9] The date of the first is given as 1941

[10] This book was the fruit of an organised collaboration on a grand scale. The two named main compilers (and effectively overall executive editors) were supported by the following eight collaborators “on the entire text”: John Addey, M.A., D.F. Astrol. S.,; Chester Kemp, A.G.S.M.; Baldur Ebertin, Dr.Phil, Dip.Psych.B.D.P.; Nona Press, B.A.; Charles Harvey, D.F.Astrol.S.; James Williamsen, Ph.D.; Frank Hyde, F.S.E.; F.S.P.E.; F.R.A.S.; and (for the summaries in French and German) Henri de Marré, Dip.I.C.G., D.F.Astrol.S.. Additionally named as having “assisted with the entire text” are: Pamela Bennett, D.F.Astrol.S., D.M.S.Astrol. (Hon.); T. Patrick Davis; Ronald Davison; Doris Chase Doane; Mark Feldman, M.S.; Dr. Joseph Frederici; Robert Hand, B.S.; Charles A. Jayne; Anthony Joseph, M.A.; Jeff Mayo, F.R.Met.S.; D.F.Astrol.S.; Neil Michelsen, B.S.; Al H. Morrison, B.A.; Michael Munkasey, B.S.; E.M. Russell, M.Ed.; Maurice Silver; and Harold J. White, M.A.. A further cast of twenty-eight, many of them well-known astrologers and theoretical writers on subjects related to astrology, is credited with having “assisted with special topics”

[11] A very wide-ranging and thoroughly source-referenced summary and review of developments in astrological ideas and research during the first three quarters of the twentieth century. The source references in themselves are something of a gold mine of information

[12] Credited thus on the inner title page, although the formal publisher was Analogic.  The copyright page further states that publication was partly made possibly by The Urania Trust and Astro Computing Services

[12a] This massive, compendious work formerly bore the working name of “Recent Advances in Natal Astrology 2” while it was under preparation from the early 1980s onwards. It attempts to achieve a comprehensive formal evidence-based review of known significant empirical tests into astrology in the years to 2015. The component reviews assume a sound technical understanding of basic statistical concepts. While the authors’ conclusions about all pieces of research into astrological correlations except for the Gauquelin studies (on which they are equivocal) are negative, the work as a whole serves as a valuable reference work and introduction to previously published studies, whatever one’s personal persuasion on the issue of the factual veracity or otherwise of astrological doctrine.

[13] Professor of History and Director of the Office of the History of Science and Technology, at Berkeley

[14] Despite the title, this volume has significant astrological content. The Latin edition and facing translation by Shumaker of Dee’s “Propaedeumata Aphoristica” spans pp. [100]-[201] and is followed by Shumaker’s notes spanning pp. [203]-241, a bibliography and an index. The introductory essay by Heilbron spans pp. 1-99 and includes over ten pages on astrology, with reference to the relevant numbered source paragraphs in the text of the Propaedeumata Aphoristica.

[15] Internally, stated first printing, 1992, but this copy has a later Unibind.com binding and must therefore be a later printing, probably late 1990s or early 2000s
