[1] A bound photocopy-based reprint of the dissertation originally published 1987

[2] A series of publications directed by Antonio Panaino

[3] The core of this volume is a transliteration, transcription, and Italian translation of chapters V A and VI F of the Bundahishn, a ninth-century Zoroastrian text (pp. 66-80). The remainder is  introduction and commentary, including upon two other astrological sections in the Bundahishn (not reproduced here), V and V B. Appendices briefly discuss (pp. 137-162) several relevant texts by other authors, including two other zoroastrian texts, three classical texts, one Indian, three Arabic, and three grouped under the subheading “Byzantine and late medieval”.

[4] Seems an identical reprint of the above except for the fewer advertisements at the end

[5] A collection of ten essays by different scholars, including Charles Burnett, Laura Ackerman Smoller, Hilary M. Carey, Jean-Patrice Boudet, H. Darrel Rutkin, Darin Hayton, Monica Azzolini, Claudia Brosseder, and Ralley, with an introduction by Kassell

[6] The author is described in the preface as ‘one Sri Ramadayalu belonging to the Advaita Brahmin class[,] evidently a saivite’; and the age of the source text is indicated as being ‘the middle of the 19th century’. In common with other 1970s editions of translations by Sastri, the Sanskrit source text is integrally presented with its English translation throughout the book, making this an ideal scholarly reference edition for those able to read Sanskrit as well as English.

[7] The preface is dated 1943; and the original edition was published by V.B. Soobbiah of Bangalore in 1944, according to Worldcat library records. By 1976, Sastri was deceased, but the foreword to the second edition is provided by his presumed relative K. Subrahmanyan

[8] Said to have been thoroughly revised from the original edition of 1962, with many of the charts ‘reworked’ for accuracy

[9] This volume notably includes a transcript of a letter sent by C. G. Jung to the author in September 1947, detailing Jung’s then philosophical position on astrology

[9a] Expanded from the first edition of 1946, with subsequent editions having been published in 1950 (82 pages), and 1956 (116 pages). See below for the following fifth edition

[10] After the fourth edition of 1958, q. v. above. The following sixth edition of 1972 appears according to library records to have been reduced to 138 pages, for reasons unknown

[11] The first edition is dated to 1940, and the sixth is said to have been published ‘four years ago’, i.e. 1957 or 1956

[11a] This edition is said by Raman himself to have been ‘thoroughly revised and improved’ although there is no change in page count from the previous one

[11b] The first edition is dated to 1938, with the preface to it, dated February 1938, retained. The preface to the third edition suggests that the second dates to within two years before it, so is presumed to have been published in 1941

[12] The first edition is dated to 1938, with the preface to it, dated February 1938, retained. Other editions recorded by libraries include the 5th of 1951, the 6th of 1955 and the 8th of 1963

[13] The seventh edition is stated ‘thoroughly revised’; the preface to the first edition, dated 1941, is retained within. The earliest edition recorded in Worldcat is the fifth of 1953, with an unspecified edition of 1971 (presumed the sixth) also listed, as well as an eighth edition of 1981

[14] Ostensibly the first edition of this volume, billed as a belated sequel to Part One, which is said to have been first published in 1943

[14a] Here credited as ‘Editor, Astrological Magazine and Author of more than Seventy works on Astrology and other subjects’

[14b] There is no copyright page or date on the title page, but the preface is dated October 1935 and this is generally accepted as correct for this first edition; although on the title page, the author makes reference to some works of his that have not yet been published by this stage, the evidence suggests he had already been working on them and his plans to publish them were therefore underway. One of the works to which he lays claim, ‘A Text-Book of Hindu Astrology’, would never appear under that name, becoming instead ‘Hindu Predictive Astrology’ when eventually published in 1938

[15] Said to have been ‘entirely revised, recast and at some places re-written’. The preface to the first edition is retained and dated October 1935

[15a] After the fourth edition of May 1949, the retained preface of which indicated that it was ‘entirely revised, re-cast and at some places re-written’. For the third edition of 1946, see above

[16] A collection of 76 nativities, including the author’s detailed interpretations, for an international assortment of famous individuals, also including the author and B. Suryanarain Rao. Many are said to have been revised from articles previously published in a feature called ‘Horoscope of the Month’ in The Astrological Magazine

[17] The preface is dated 1956 and appears to belong to the first edition
