[2] A collection of 11 essays by different scholars, including Paul Magdalino, David Pingree, Charles Burnett and George Saliba. Six of the essays directly concern astrology according to their titles

[2a] A compendium of 16 essays divided into five topical themes: 1. Divination and philosophy; 2. Pagan and Christian oracles; 3. Divinatory practices at Byzantium; 4. Astrology from  Rome to Byzantium; 5. Pagan and Christian oneiromancy. The astrological section comprises three essays, spanning pp. 305-365, by authors including Béatrice Bakhouche

[3] Dated 1989, but this might be a later undeclared reprint

[3a] A further credit reads: “appendice astronomica di Marco Fumigali”

[3b] A monochrome facsimile of the original Latin edition of 1616, with facing modern Italian translation. The original edition was an annex to a volume of ephemerides by Magini spanning the years 1611 to 1630. The introduction to this edition features a full bibliographical listing of 33 published works by Magini

[3c] A posthumous second edition after the original edition of 1941

[4] A series of publications edited by Jacques-É. Ménard, in collaboration with an editorial committee comprising Hervé Gagné, Bernard Barc, Jean-Pierre Mahé and MIchael Roberge.

[5] By this time, the series was jointly edited by Jacques-É. Ménard, Paul-Hubert Poirier and Michel Roberge, in collaboration with Bernard Barc, Paul Claude, Jean-Pierre Mahé, Louis Painchaud and Anne Pasquier

[6] There is no rational cause for the jump in pagination to 7, in view of there being only one blank and one printed leaf before this page.

[7] Conservator at the department of oriental Antiquities, Islamic section (within the musée du Louvre)

[8] A companion volume to an exhibition that took place at the Louvre from the 18th June to the 21st September, 1998. It features five studies by different scholars and teams thereof, including one by David King and one jointly by Makariou and Anna Caiozzo

[8b] A collection of thirty-six essays by the author, seven of which were previously published in Dell Horoscope Magazine, two in Diamond Fire Magazine and three in The Mountain Astrologer

[8c] After the original printing of 1988 and a subsequent one of 1992 that is referenced in the ‘Preface to Revised (1992) Edition’ at p. 5; the present edition has supplemented the contents of the original one with photocopies of several articles by Makransky on the same topic that appeared in the astrological magazine press between 1988 and 1995, of which the last two from 1995 and the others from 1988 to 1992, and features multiple web addresses, of which at least one was on the web as early as 1995, suggesting it may be from that year or soon after then

[9] This volume presents horoscopes and aspect grids for 69 countries and about seven other entities of relevance to mundane astrology, with facing analysis by Malec

[10] This sequel to the volume above presents horoscopes and aspect grids for a further 58 countries and two other entities of relevance to mundane astrology, with facing analysis by Malec

[11a] After the original John Watkins edition published in London in 1934. No editorial indication is given of the changes since the original edition, though this one is about 20 pages longer

[11b] The author, a female, is described as a “student and disciple, under the guidance and tutorship of Prince Tuala Tamalelagi, of Samoa” in the foreword. It would appear possible that she was also at some stage his wife in the light of evidence (see entry for “Star Symphony” under Tamalelagi below) that she took his name

[12] The work appears self-published, but a printed label adhered to the lower margin of the title page identifies the distributor: ‘Sold by Church of Light’

[13] The Corpus Poetarum Epicorum Graecorum would appear to be a sub-series of works by Greek epic poets within the overall long-running series of critical editions of ancient Greek and Roman writings published by Teubner.

[14] It is bound first in this volume, before two contemporaneous non-astrological works by the same publisher: “Nicomachi Geraseni Pythagorei Introductorius Arithmeticae Libri II. Recensuit Ricardus Hoche” (Teubner, 1866), and “Onosandri De Imperatoris Officio Liber. Recensuit et Commentaroi Critico Instruxit Arminius Koechly” (Teubner, 1860)

[15] A series of publications collectively edited by Klaus Alpers, Christian Brockmann, Dieter Harlfinger and Diether R. Reinsch

[16] A new critical edition of the original ancient Greek text of Manetho’s famed astrological poem, claimed to be an improvement on that of Koechly (1858) (q.v.), thanks to the benefit of additional manuscript sources. The Greek text of the present edition spans pages 51-193, and is preceded by a scholarly study of the text by the editor in German, spanning pp. 9-42.  No translation is included
