[1] The work bears no title page but appears to be an index to the contents of the German astrological journal “Die Astrologische Auskunftsbogen”, q. v. in the German periodicals section when it is ready. In view of the workmanlike production values, I suspect it was prepared by a former owner of a large set of the journal for personal private use, and was not formally published.

[1a] Presumed 1940s

[1b] In his introduction, Rau states that the source volume he is translating ‘has no introduction’, and he is therefore unable to say anything about its author, but he subsequently refers to him as ‘Sage Bhrugu’.

[1c] A series of publications collectively edited at this time by Hans Daiber, Anna Akasoy and Emilie Savage-Smith

[1d] The volume comprises a colour facsimile, Arabic critical edition, and English translation of an anonymous work believed to have been compiled in Egypt between 1020 and 1050, together with a commentary upon it and indices. The critical edition is based on the collation of nine incomplete manuscripts, primarily an illustrated one acquired by the Bodleian Library in 2002, which is said to date from the late 12th or early 13th century. The eight other partial or complete copies of the text used in the preparation of the critical edition were later, mostly unillustrated manuscripts of the 16th to 19th centuries, found in other libraries around the world.  The contents of the work include Book One: On the Heavens, whose contents are partly astrological, spanning pp. 323-414 in the English translation section of this volume. The editors have also included an extensive annotated glossary of star names featured in the text, spanning pp. 529-662

[1e] A discussion of the relative election prospects for Mr. Hoover, Roosevelt, Mr. (Al) Smith, and Garner, the year before a new United States Presidency was to begin. Internal references to Hoover being the current president assuredly date the discussion (and subsequent election) to 1932

[1f] An added notice reads ‘Published Quarterly’, but the content consists of fixed natal Sun sign delineations, not predictive material

[1g] No authorship is stated at the beginning of this text, but the end is labelled in print ‘Notes from Grace Ellery Williams’, indicating that it may be a transcript of notes taken by a student from a lecture delivered by Williams

[1h] Appears to be the automated output of an early astrological computer program

[1i] A non-astrological publication based on the visions of renowned psychic Edgar Cayce. This copy was acquired through its inclusion in a mixed lot of esoteric titles

[1j] Said to have been revised and expanded from the original 1959 edition entitled ‘A Psychic Interpretation of some Late-Cenozoic Events Compared with Selected Scientific Data’. The additions to the present title were made in an undeclared later printing. Other declared dates of earlier printings are 1961 and 1963

[1k] The author gives no clues as to his or her identity but is presumed a loyal associate of the Professor Shearhod to whom frequent references are made in the text. This Professor Shearhod would appear to have been a consulting astrologer

[1l] The text refers retrospectively to three press citations in 1928, the last of which is dated to December 29th of that year, so it can reasonably be presumed to have been published in 1929; indeed, Internet references to it are found in scanned publications from 1929

[1m] U.S. edition of the above

[2] Pseud. of Georges-Marcel Mostade

[3] Library records indicate an undated first edition with the same total page count having been published in 1953. It is presumed that this 1955 edition is essentially unchanged in content

[4] The binder is labelled a “Classeur-Relieur Colma” and sourced to “26, rue Fortuny, Paris”

[5] A reference to a work referred to in internal advertising as “L’Art de l’Interprétation Astrologique” being in preparation would suggest a date not later than 1955

[5a] The advertisement on the back for the issue of “Demain” for Septembre 1935 firmly dates this printing, which is presumed to be the original one, to that time

[6] Deduced from address and internal references to be 1935-6, thus soon after the original edition above

[7] So stated on front cover although not within

[8] A series of publications collectively edited at this time by Michael Dewar, Adolf Köhnken, Karla Pollmann and Ruth Scodel

[9] Billed as the revised version of Heilen’s habilitation thesis that was accepted in the summer of 2006 by the Department of History and Philosophy at the Westfälischen Wilhelms-Universität, Münster. This first volume is centred around Heilen’s critical edition, with modern German translation, of the excerpts from Antigonos featured in the text of Hephaistio of Thebes (pp. 65-186). It also includes a section on the life and work of Antigonos; a discussion of sources; an extensive catalogue of antique horoscopes (pp. 204-333), and a lengthy bibliography.

[10] A series of publications collectively edited at this time by Michael Dewar, Adolf Köhnken, Karla Pollmann and Ruth Scodel

[11] This second volume comprises Heilen’s very extensive commentary, in German, on the text of the fragments of Antigonus

[12] A planned series of 30 publications presenting English translations and commentaries upon the Hellenistic astrological corpus. As of September 2015, only this one had yet appeared, the volume number representing its planned place in the series rather than its order of publication

[13] It is believed that all the pre-ordered copies sold in the summer of 2009 were signed thus, in personalised dedication to their purchasers

[14] A critical edition of the ancient Greek text of Anubio

[14a] A series of publications published under the patronage of the Association Guillaume Budé

[14b] A new, extensively annotated critical edition with French translation of Anubio’s astrological poem previously edited in the Bibliotheca Teubneriana series

[16] Library records give 1936

[17] A series of publications edited by J. Diggle, N. Hopkinson, H. D. Jocelyn, M. D. Reeve, D. N. Sedley and R. J. Tarrant

[18] The core of this volume is a critical edition of the original ancient Greek text (said to have been composed some time between 276 and 239 B.C.), with facing translation (pp. 72-157), followed by a very extensive commentary (pp. 161-577)

[19] After the original (hardback) edition of 1997

[20] Pseudonym of a Mme. Bucco of 39, rue de Chateaudun, Paris, according to Charles de Herbais de Thun
