[1] Comprises pp. 215-302 of the present volume, which also contains seventeen other, mostly short, studies by different scholars, and a bibliography of the works of R. Borger

[2] A series edited by Giorgio Buccellati, subtitled: “Primary sources and interpretive analyses for the study of Mesopotamian civilization and its influences from late prehistory to the end of the cuneiform tradition”

[3] A further credit reads: “Published under the Auspices of IIMAS: The International Institute for Mesopotamian Area Studies”.

[4] A series of publications edited at this time by T. Abusch, M. J. Geller, Th. P. J. van den Hout, S. M. Maul and F. A. M. Wiggermann

[5] This volume presents a transcription and English translation of the surviving Venus omens in tablets other than those in Tablet 63, which were previously presented in Part One, q. v. above. In particular, the omens featured in the Enuma Anu Enlil Tablets 59 and 60 are presented here.

[6] A series of publications whose overall managing editor at this time is Geerd Haayer, and whose other editors are T. Abusch, M.J. Geller, M.P. Maidman, S.M. Maul and F.A.M. Wiggermann

[7] This volume presents a transcription and English translation of the surviving tables of Jupiter omens, especially those comprising the Enuma Anu Enlil Tablets 64 and 65.

[7a] A work of popular romance fiction testifying to the widespread permeation of zodiac sign consciousness into the culture of the United States during the 1970s. The writing appears adult-oriented and follows the adventures of a young man dating representatives of each of the Sun signs

[8] A series of publications directed by Dieter Wuttke, “in Verbindung mit Stephan Füssel und Joachim Knape”

[9] “k. bayer. Hauptmann in Regensburg; Inhaber der k. k. österr. großen goldenen Medaille für Kunst und Wissenschaft; Mitglied mehrerer historischen Vereine”

[10] “k. württ. Ober-Justiz-Revisor in Ulm; Geschäftsführer beim Kepler-Denkmal; Inhaber des k. bayer. Verdienst-Ordens vom heil. Michael, des k. k. österr. Franz-Joseph- und des k. preuß Kron-Ordens”

[11] The preface is dated 6. März, 1866, but there is no publication date provided. However, the DNB records 1866, agreeing with the preface

[11a] Advertising on the rear dj cover for Jupiter’s ‘For the Stars Foretell’ shows cannot predate 1960. Presumed 1960 or very early 1960s. After the original edition of 1924, revised second edition in 1935, and undated third and fourth editions

[11b] The original edition was published in 1924, with the revised second edition in 1935, according to library records. The third and fourth editions are unclearly dated, with some library records giving them the same year as the second, but this is likely to be false. No public library records for the fifth edition (q. v. above) could be found at the time of writing.

[12] Library records show that the first edition was published in 1943 and the sixth in 1965, so this one is guessed at having been published approximately in the 1950s

[12a] Subtitled ‘A series of handbooks and reference works on the intellectual and religious life of Europe, 500-1800’, this series was edited at this time by Christopher M. Bellitto of Kean University

[12b] This volume consists chiefly of a compilation of essays by different scholars on the theology (pp. 15-161) and philosophy (pp. 165-721) of Albertus Magnus. There are four essays in the theology section and 13 in the philosophy section, with the last of these, on metaphysics, itself being subdivided into 13 shorter essays by different scholars. An epilogue entitled ‘Albert’s Contributions to or Influence on Vernacular Literatures’ (pp. 725-757) concludes the main text. The philosophy section includes three successive chapters comprising over 100 pages on Astronomy, the Speculum Astronomiae, and Astrology and Magic

[13] According to Holden, this work can be inferred as having been written at the beginning of the sixth century A.D.. Holden’s translation is taken chiefly from CCAG VIII.4, partly from CCAG II, partly from an appendix to David Pignree’s edition of the Arabic verison of Dorotheus of Sidon, and partly from a draft of chapters 108-112 of David Pingree’s unpublished Greek critical edition of the text of Dorotheus

[14] The present volume is said to contain the fourth edition of the translation. The previous editions were circulated privately in 1985, 2000 and 2005

[15] A series of publications focused on the middle ages, directed by the present editor, Bernard Ribémont

[15a] A unique popular astrology work giving separate character readings for every calendar day of any month, without reference to the month. The delineations are said to be based on the ’Sunrise figure’ for each day of the calendar month, thus to be astrological and not numerological. The unpromising, keyword-deficient title would appear to suggest that it was marketed at the non-astrological mass-public who might otherwise have been put off by obviously astrological references in it., and that the author did not particularly wish to have his work critiqued by astrologers, although the front flap of the dust jacket bills the book as a ‘Book of Horoscopes’ – which mention is not made in the book itself

[16] This is apparent from the line of numbers at the foot of the title page, besides the fact that it is a paperback edition whereas the first copy held, from the original printing, is a hardback
