[1] DNB gives 1927

[2] The same edition as the above but in the alternative publisher’s issue paper binding

[3] DNB gives 1927

[4] This edition not found in Karlsruhe Virtueller Katalog, so cannot readily be dated; but it is a much later reprint of the original Theosophisches Verlagshaus edition shown above

[5] DNB and other German library records give 1926, which is supported by advertising for a 1926 calendar in the rear of the volume

[6] The credit continues: “Inhaber der Königl. Peurß. goldenen Medaille für Wissenschaft, ordentlichen Mitgliede der deutschen morgenländischen, sowie der historisch-theologischen Gesellschaft zu Leipzig”

[6a] A series of publications founded by M. H. E. Weippert and edited at this time by Jonathan Stökl

[6b] A subseries jointly edited by Anthony Spalinger and Davide Nadali

[7] DNB records 1928

[7a] An early series of publications focused on English translations of ancient Indian astrological texts. This was the fourth volume to be released in the series, following the Brihat Samhita of Varaha Mihira (q.v.), the Brihat Jataka of Varaha Mihira (q.v. for a later reprint of the same translation) and a shorter work on horary (not in this collection)

[8] An internal reference indicates within the year before March 1931

[9] Internal references suggest probably 1933 or early 1934

[10] The typeface matches that for the previous tables, so this is presumed as issued despite the workmanlike production quality

[11] No publication date recorded in available Worldcat records, but presumed to date from the early 1930s. Over the original printed publisher credit to the title page has been pasted a label of D. G. Nelson, Publisher & Sales Agent, 619 N. State St., Chicago 10, Ill.

[12] NB: Urania is believed to have been a late-adopted pseudonym of White, although this cannot be verified; the above work notably is published from the shop he ran.

[13] A facsimile reprint of the original publication of 1898, whose publisher is not specified here but shown by Worldcat records to be the Light of Truth Pub., Columbus, Ohio. It is said to have been published as Vol. 2, No. 2 of a series called the Light of Truth Library

[13a] Described as a Moscow-born professional dancer who later became a dance teacher, theatre writer, poet and astrologer in the United States. It is not known whether she was born to a Russian family and changed her name or whether she was born to an American family in the United States

[13b] Expanded from the original, unillustrated 32-page edition. The plates in this edition, all of which are tinted green, are based on the author’s own line artwork

[14] Dated 1999; but it is unclear whether this date relates to the first or second printing

[15] Described on the dj rear flap as “Assistant Professor of Classics at the University of Southern California”

[16] A series of publicatins edited by Ralph Mathisen

[17] Further credits for their “contributions” go to Silke Ackermann, François Charette, Elly Dekker, Paul Kunitzsch, Richard Lorch, David Proctor and A. J. Turner. Charette has edited the catalogue of Eastern astrolabes, while Van Cleempoel took on the catalogue of European astrolabes; the others each contributed one of the introductory essays

[18] Part of a series of catalogues collectively edited by Kristen Lippincott. The present volume begins with nine essays (pp. 3-111), including three by Van Cleempoel and six by the separately credited contributors identified in the previous footnote. The catalogue of European Astrolabes spans pp. 115-209, and that of Eastern Astrolabes pp. 210-319

[19] “with contributions by Peter Huber”

[20] The advertisement is for Vol. I of the series, which deals with “Egyptian, Babylonian and Greek Mathematics”, and is therefore not directly relevant for the purposes of this collection

[20a] In one of her letters, the author gives her birth data as 21 Novembre 1926 at Paris, T.S. 17h16m.

[20b] A covering letter in the author’s hand, from an address in Auxerre, dated 1 Janvier 1990, is enclosed; the manuscript itself would therefore appear likely to have been finished in late 1989

[20c] From the context of accompanying correspondence, this was clearly 1966

[20d] This does not have a particularly professional-looking finish and may or may not be the work of Hadès

[21] Excepting the final tables from p. 84 to the end, this publication is printed in dual-columned pages throughout, and with repeated references to the continuation of articles on later pages; thus, it appears to be essentially a series of articles reprinted from an astrological magazine, and in view of the publisher, it seems most probably sourced in American Astrology Magazine

[22] A series of publications of the Dutch Historical-archaeological Institute of Istanbul, directed by Machteld J. Mellink, J. de Roos, J.J. Roodenberg and K.R. Veenhof

[23] Both the original text and an English translation is provided for the tables covered by this book

[24] A later printing of the original edition of 1981, q. v. above

[25] A series of publications collectively edited at this time by Frances Andrews, supported by a team of five other editors including Paul Magdalino

[26] The chief focus of this book is the cultural context of three astrological texts preserved in a single manuscript. Although in spite of its main title, this is a wide-ranging history of the reign of Emperor Baldwin II, there are significant astrological chapters, notably Chapter 1, Manuscript Tradition, about the astrological texts in the particular manuscript under review; Chapter 5, The Astrological Corpus: Western and Byzantine Influences (pp.97-130); and three appendices that are editions in medieval French of parts of the manuscript itself, comprising an astrological poem (pp. 217-227), Courtenay’s Horoscope of Baldwin II (pp. 228-234), and selected chapters from the Introductoire d’Astronomie [pp. 235-252]
