[1] A wide-ranging discussion of subjects including free will, knowledge of destiny, karma, psychoanalysis, ajnd yoga. Includes a six-page section on astrology (pp. 24-30)

[2] BIdnetified in print in some of his own promotional literature as Johann Vrbata of Forststraße 38, Ewersbach

[3] Title to spine is ‘Die astrologische Revolution’.

[4] After the original edition of 1983

[5] The author has been identified from library records although his name is not stated in the book.

[6] This book is printed in old script; it appears to date from the early 20th century. Swiss library records claim a date of 1910.

[7] Also held, another copy, undated, publisher not specified, misbound in terms of page order

[8] A compendium of fragments attributed to sources including Johannes Lydus, Masha’Allah, Hermes Trismegistus (attrib.), Nechepso and Petosiris, Erimarabos, Phoredas, Odapsos, Zoroaster, Pythagoras the Philosopher, Erasistratos, Timaeus, Serapio, Critodemos, Thrasyllus, Callicrates, Demetrius, Balbillus, and Teucer of Babylon

[8a] After the original edition published by The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc., copyrighted 1970

[8b] Facsimile reprint, estimated early-mid-20th century, of original edition published by Verlag der Buchhandlung des Waisenhauses, Halle, 1832. It is impossible to give an exact dating for this undated printing without further research to locate it in contemporaneous advertisements, because there are no deposit library records in the DNB and the publisher Omnitypie-Gesellschaft appears to have been active from 1882 to 1972 inclusive. However, the flyer laid in within this copy advertises the revised edition published by Otto Wilhelm Barth in München in 1927, and it therefore seems most likely that the present facsimile, which lacks the added preface by Strunz in the Barth Verlag edition, predates this, with booksellers often estimating 1925

[8c] An annual charitable fundraising drive by Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt, a social welfare organisation operative in Nazi Germany

[8d] A series of publications edited by Chia-Feng Chang, Michael Lackner, Klaus Herbers and Alexander Fidora at this time

[9] Also held, a recent reprint of Schmitt’s book scanned from the original work, showing the same date though in fact much later

[10] DNB records give 1927

[11] On the front board, his first name is misrepresented as Oskar, but internally it is spelled correctly

[12] After the first edition (1.-3. Tsd.) of 1922 (374pp); the second edition of 1925 (373pp); and the third of 1931 (387pp), according to German library records. The reason for the reduced page count in the present posthumous fourth edition is not immediately apparent

[12a] A series of publications collectively edited at this time by Guy Delmarcel and Koenraad Brosens, supported by an Advisory Committee of six

[12b] A series of publications collectively edited by Burkhard Gladigow and Günter Kehrer

[13] Translated from the original Latin edition as published in 1545. At the time of writing (October 2015), the long-awaited follow-up translations of Books II and III from Schöner’s original text have yet to appear

[14] The original publication date is given as 1994

[15] A compilation of fourteen articles by different authors, including Thomas Ring; Fritz Werle; Reinhold Ebertin; Hans Genuit;  and the editor
