Pingisne, Roderich W. ‘Praktische Astrologie: Wie berechnet und deutet man ein Horoskop?’ Verlag Malsch und Vogel, Karlsruhe,  1949. Original quarter-cloth with paper-covered boards, in dj (chipped at top of spine and of flap-folds; slightly chipped to feet of spine and flap-folds; small central internal tear to spine). (Previous owner’s red marginal bracket to p. 56, and very occasional small red marginal circles elsewhere; misprinted glyph corrected in blue ink to p. 86.)

[1] (A former owner’s red circular stickers have been adhered to the outer margins of pp. 3-4 and 7 of the review; the last leaf has a 1 cm tear at the outer margin.)

[2] A  reprint of the above

[3] Pseud. of Georges Descormiers, according to Charles de Herbais de Thun

[3a] An early Sun sign synastry guide, divided along gender lines. For each Sun sign, separate sections are given over to the personality of men and women born under the sign, followed by one on men born under the sign in relationship with women born under every other sign, with typically from half a page to two-thirds of a page given over to each combination. Thus, in all 144 combinations are described.

[3b] The British Library record gives 1937

[4] Presumed 1980

[5] The eccentric pagination would suggest it is an offprint from a journal, perhaps the transactions of the Numismatic and Antiquarian Society of Philaelphia?

[6] COPAC records suggest that the Rev. C. C. Clarke, given as the author of ‘The Hundred Wonders of the World’, was a pseudonym of Sir Richard Phillips, the publisher of the present work. The evidence underpinning this attribution is unknown to me. The present work is on astronomy but includes a lot of fine plates and useful information on the solar system as it was understood in the early 19th century, plus a lecture on the zodiacal constellations with information on related mythology.

[7] Text is continuous from p. 143 to p. 192. There are no missing pages but the book is seriously mispaginated

[7a] A series of publications of variably direct or indirect relevance to the work of late author

[7b] A new edition of the original publication of 1913, with two added introductions by Baldacchini and Casali totalling 31 pages between them

[8] The daughter of the actor and theatre director Jacques Rouché

[9] A mysterious unpublished typescript with no title page, from the library of Maurice Privat. Author and title taken from spine. The contents do not match those of Picard’s ‘Astrologie Judiciaire’ or Privat’s own published works. Internal references to earlier authors are a stylistic match to Privat’s work; and the binding, typed style and handwritten aditions are a match for the other typescripts from Privat’s library in this collection.

[10] Guessed 1940s or 1950s

[11] There is no evidence of content missing before p. 109 or after p. 112. The error is therefore presumed to lie in the running design of the pagination itself

[11a] The overall project director, who is assisted by a team of five named editors and two illustrators

[11b] Contents consist of a series of 27 essays by different astrologers and scholars, mostly Italian; some American or of other nationalities but translated into Italian. Authors include Margherita Fiorello, Robert Hand, Meskalila Nunzia Coppola, Liz Greene, Lisa Morpurgo, Irene Zanier, Stephen Arroyo, Richard Tarnas, and Anna Maria Morsucci

[12] A recently published reduced photocopy of the (undated) original, Latin edition. It is not presented with any introduction that might otherwise helpfully have specified the date and other details of the text being reproduced. The Latin facsimile text is mostly fairly clear to read although the text is a little coarsened, with just a small ink stain on original double-page spread li obscuring a few words

[13] It is not clear why no double-page spread xcii is present in this reproduction. The previous page ends ‘Cum Privilegio’; and the left-hand page xciii is the first part of the index.

[14] Essentially a critical edition of the Latin text of Pietro d’Abano’s Lucidator dubitabilium astronomiae [pp. 57-324], with no translation but the editor’s notes in Italian and a lengthy introduction. The Latin text of Pietro’s Tractatus de motu octavae sphaerae appears as an appendix (pp. 329-365). Further appendices feature works by different authors: Cecco d’Ascoli De excentricis et epicyclis (pp. 371-394); and Pierre de Limoges Nota autografa ‘Iudei feriant in sabbato’ (pp. 399-406)

[15] After the first edition of 1988
