[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

[10] Expanded from the first edition of 1946, with subsequent editions having been published in 1950 (82 pages), 1956 (116 pages) and 1958 (146 pages, the same count as the present edition) respectively. The following sixth edition of 1972 appears 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.

[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

[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

[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

[18] Said to have been ‘thoroughly revised’ from the fourth edition. The preface to the first edition, retained internally, is dated 1944.

[19] According to the translator, the original version of this treatise on horary astrology was composed in 1567. It is believed by some authorities to have formed the 3rd and final division of Neelakanta’s work Tojaka Neelakanteeya

[20] The translator’s introduction is signed August 1969

[21] The preface to the first edition is retained, dated July, 1947

[22] Sheets from the two originally separately published parts of the second edition have been bound up into a single volume by the publisher. The paper quality of the two parts is distinctly different, confirming this. In later editions, the pagination would be unified

[23] The preface to the first edition is retained, dated August, 1950

[24] This edition is said to have been ‘almost completely rewritten’ from the earlier editions, with new chapters on Muntha and Yogas added, the treatment of Sahams extended to cover 35 of them, and the author’s views on the Tajaka having been revised. The preface to the first edition, retained here, is dated 1938. Library records show the first edition to have comprised 80 pages, and the seventh (of 1961) 101 pages.
