[0] A collection of seven scholarly essays on topics connected with mediaeval astrological and divinatory books and manuscripts

[1] Presumed within a few years before or after 1916, the date of another title by same author

[1a] No indication is given of the apparently multiple authors of the original sources translated in this text, and it is presumed that they are unknown. I have therefore credited it to the translator

[1b] Excerpts given from several reviews dated 1957 appear to suggest that as being the probable date of the original edition

[2] The main part of this book is organised with Latin source text and facing French translation. As of September 2015, Tome 2, expected to be devoted to Raymond’s Liber judiciorum, had not yet been published.

[3] There is no blank leaf present to account for the lapse in pagination between the blank [p. 346] and p. 349. The error appears to be in the pagination, since there is no evidence of any missing content

[4] Styled on the dj rear flap as “Sri P.V.R. Rayudu, B.E., M.Tech”, and described as a former Senior Scientist and Deputy Director at the Defence Research and Development Laboratory of the Government of India

[5] After the first printing of 1975, q. v. above

[6] After the first printing of 1975

[6a] On the front cover, but not on the inner title page, appears the added subtitle: ‘The Approach of Edgar Cayce’

[6b] After the first of October 1985

[7] According to the spine

[7a] The contents comprise some introductory chapters on assorted occult and divinatory topics, followed by a detailed analysis of the Sun signs in turn

[7b] A pseudonym used by the author of this brief tract, a sports fashion designer, to represent her fashion house. She is said to have earlier been a successful tennis player under her real name of Balouzet Tillard de Tigny

[7c] One of fifty, numbered from 1001 to 1050, reserved and personalised in print for friends of the illustrator. A further fifty, numbered from 1051 to 1100, were reserved for friends of the publisher. It would seem that only these hundred copies feature the hand-coloured frontis. though all have the coloured internal plate

[8] Reich’s own business. See also under “Additional items held” at the end of this catalogue

[8a] This is likely to be the ‘Kosmometer’ referred to on the title page, since it corresponds to a diagram on leaf 6, while ‘Der Kosmograph oder Psychometer’ is a heading to leaf 19; but it is not immediately clear if it was a part of a larger device, the rest of which has been lost

[9] After the original edition copyrighted 2002

[10] A print-on-demand issue via of the revised edition of 2004, after the original edition of 1995. This printing from the late 2000s

[11] Dated 1997; but it is unclear if this relates only to the first printing, as seems likely

[12] Suggested 1944 or 1946 by COPAC, with the latter appearing more definite
