[1] At this time, President Emeritus of the American University of Beirut

[2] A series of publications edited “under the auspices of the Department of History, Columbia University”, by W. T. H. Jackson, Professor of German and History, since 1962 (the fourth holder of the position of General Editor since 1915)

[3] The original Arabic work is believed to have been composed between 987 and 990. The present volume is an English translation only, from “the most important manuscripts of the book”, of Chapters 1-6, with scholarly footnotes

[4] The date of the present printing is not expressly stated

[5] An English translation only of chapters 7-10, with scholarly footnotes, followed by a bibliography, glossary, and lengthy indices

[5a] After stated first printing of 2009

[6] A series of publications directed by Sergio De Santis

[7] A retyped edition of the text from a 16th century astrological treatise said to be contained in a manuscript from the Capuchin monasery in Palma, Mallorca. Diagrams from the original manuscript have been reproduced in photographic facsimile

[7a] This volume was the first in a projected series of three volumes in this series, of which only the first and the third (‘The Daily Use of the Ephemeris’) are known to have been published. The second, slated for publication in January 1927, was to have been a sequel to the present volume entitled ‘The Interpretation of Progression’. I can find no library records or other online records testifying to its existence, and presume therefore that it never made it to print, at least until such time as it may be demonstrated otherwise

[8] A popularly marketed Sun sign primer; the typesetting is very dense, with as many as 69 lines per page, so a lot of material is crammed into the available space

[9] A collection of publications directed by Mario di Pinto and Laura Dolfi

[10] A compilation of six texts from the stated Alfonsine manuscript, preceded by a lengthy introduction (pp. 7-93). Each text is presented in what appears to be the original Castillian with facing modern Italian translation. The texts in order of appearance are: Seudo-Pitágoras Libro de Los Paranatellonta, is (pp. 98-127); Libro de los Decanos (pp. 128-135); Libro de la Luna (pp. 136-225); Seudo-Aristóteles Libro de las Imágenes de los Doce Signos (pp. 226-241); Libro de Marte (pp. 242-269); and Libro de Mercurio (pp. 270-299). Extensive Italian endnotes to the various texts complete the volume (pp. 354-459)

[11] A transcription of the text of the Escorial Library manuscript h-I-15, said to consist of 119 leaves. In the present edition it fills pp. 3-147

[12] A transcription of the text of the Escorial Library manuscript h-I.16, said to consist of fourteen leaves constituting an outline of a lost work. It fills pp. 151-178 of the present edition

[13] The first of a five-volume set of mid-19th-century editions by Don Manuel Rico y Sinobas of the text of a part of the Alfonsine corpus collectively referred to as the Libro del Saber de Astrologia (although in fact its concerns were broadly astronomical). The Libro is said to be divided into sixteen parts. The present volume contains the first two of these. The first part, entitled “Los .IIII. Libros de la Ochaua Espera. Et de sus .XLVIII. Figuras. Con Sus Estrellas”, spans pp. [5]-145 of this volume. It is an illustrated treatise on the constellations and fixed stars in four ‘books’, of which the first deals with the northern ones, the second with the zodiacal ones, the third with the southern ones; and the fourth with the ‘story’ of all of them. The many interleaved plates appear to be facsimiles of the original manuscript illustrations, and typically take the form of round diagrams with pictorial representations of a particular constellation in the middle, and text radiating outwardly from it to discuss the individual fixed stars within it. The second part of the overall Libro del Saber de Astrologia, entitled “Libro de la Faycon dell Espera. Et de sus Figuras. Et de sus Huebras”, spans pp. 153-208 and completes the volume, which begins with a lengthy introduction by Rico y Sinobas. The other four volumes are not presently held in this collection

[14] Elephant folio-sized, too large for any bookcase. Must be lain flat

[15] After the Octagon Books reprint of 1966. The original edition was published by The Duke University Press in 1941. A copy of the original edition purchased for this collection was lost in transit and never received.

[16] The author’s full address is given on the advertisement to the rear cover as ’23 St. Marks Place, Brooklyn, N. Y.’

[17] This reads ‘Frank Theodore Allen, Scientific Astrologer, 204 Dartmouth St., Boston’. The bound-in pamphlet bears the same address; and a note at the back of it announces the author’s relocation from New York to his present address, which is further identified as ‘the Banner of Light Building’.

[17a] This is headed ‘Notable American Astrologers Number One: Frank Theodore Allen’ and refers to Allen’s death in 1923. It spans 1½ dual-columned pages, numbered 137 and 138, of what appears to have been a periodical publication

[18] A pseudonym of Donald Bradley, adopted for his more popular writings such as his articles in American Astrology magazine

[19] Appears a compilation of eight articles by the author under this title that were serialised in past issues of “American Astrology” magazine. The original dual-columned print format of the magazine is retained, but the text has been reduced in size to fit the smaller format of this pamphlet

[20] Earlier copyright dates of 1955 and 1965 are given. These appear to represent the original printing dates of the component articles in this compilation
