Binding format and presentation notes:

  • All issues of I. Jahrgang, 1930, bound up together in publisher’s gilt-printed ribbed cloth (light separation to parts of rear inner paper hinge), without individual issue covers, as issued. Contents printed on expensive thin glossy plate paper throughout. Prelims.: [1 leaf] + viii
  • All issues of II. Jahrgang, 1931, bound up together in publisher’s gilt-printed ribbed cloth (gilt relatively faded; light separation to parts of rear inner paper hinge), without individual issue covers, as issued. Contents printed on cheaper, thick acidic paper throughout, except where otherwise indicated. Prelims.: [1 leaf] + [pp. iii-x]
  • All issues of III. Jahrgang, 1932, bound up together with Beilage (“Dezimal-Klassifikation für das Gebiet der Astrologie”) in publisher’s gilt-printed ribbed cloth, without individual issue covers, as issued. Contents printed on cheaper, thick acidic paper throughout, except where otherwise indicated. Title-page hand-signed by Dr. Korsch, Düsseldorf, 20.XII.1932, in dedication to the original owner of this volume (but some philistine has glued a square of plain paper over the top[6]). Prelims.: [1 leaf] + [pp. iii-xii]
  • All issues from IV. Jahrgang, Heft 1 to IV. Jahrgang, Heft 11; V. Jahrgang, Heft 5 and 7-12; and those issues held of VI, VII, VIII and IX. Jahrgang, as original separate issues in original card covers (varying degrees of mostly light-to-moderate wear to extremities and surfaces of spines). Staplebound pamphlets
  • V. Jahrgang (whole year) bound up in custom half-cloth (moderate wear to extremities of spine hinges) with paper-covered boards (light wear to outer corners). Volume index to the year bound in at front

 

[1] The editorial credits on the insides of the front covers noticeably lag behind those on the inner title pages in each issue, which are clearly more accurate and up-to-date. I have nonetheless listed them separately for the purposes of clarity

[2] Despite its nominal single-issue status as printed, this is a double issue, twice the length of the usual single ones, and leads directly into the following Heft 10

[3] It is headed “Nicht nur an die berufstätigen Astrologen” and begins by discussing Herr A. M. Grimm

[4] The 1. Lieferung was supposed (according to the table of contents) to be included in the September issue for this year; the 2. Lieferung in the Oktober one; the 3. Lieferung in the November issue; and the 4. Lieferung in the Dezember one, but only the 2. Lieferung and 4. Lieferung are present and bound into these copies. For the 5. Lieferung, see the Februar 1936 issue

[5] Mislabelled on front cover “Heft 11 / 12, Nov. / Dez. 1938”, but correctly labelled on inner title

[6] And then only after attempting to efface seven words from the dedication. Fortunately it’s still possible to see his signature clearly by holding the book up to the light. I do not dare remove the piece of paper that has been glued hard over the top, because I am sure that that the glue would peel away parts of the underlying page with it, severely damaging the inscription. But perhaps there may be professional methods of achieving the separation of the adhered paper from the page without damage
