[1] These additional credits feature on the internal reproduction of the original title page, although not on the added new title page representing the reprint

[2] After the Third Revised Edition of 1996, also reprinted 1997. The Second Edition is dated to 1933. It is noted in B. V. Raman’s foreword to the Third Edition, dated 10-6-1994, that the first part of the work only was originally published in 1899 with both source text and translation, before only the translation was reprinted in 1933. Raman goes on to note that the second and third parts were translated by Rao (his grandfather) in the 1920s, and that those translations were published separately then; but that they were not included in the 1933 reprint of the translation of the first part. Thus, the 1994 edition would appear to be only the second of Parts II and III.

[3] See note above. It is not apparent why the 1994 edition (as reprinted here) is presented in two “Parts” when it represents the content of three according to Raman’s original scheme, but it can reasonably be presumed that the second volume of the present edition contains the original Parts II and III although it is labelled “Part II”

[3a] Presumed the original printing of the 2nd edition, thus published in or shortly after 1901. Dalton’s earliest editions of his ‘The Spherical Basis of Astrology’ were also published in Boston.

[4] Presumed an undated later reprint from the 2nd edition (q. v. above) that was originally published in 1901. The Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Co. was active in publishing from New York during a wide range of dates spanning 1904 to 1953 at least, according to Worldcat records; but their other issues of publications by Joseph Dalton are credited to their operation in Richmond, Virginia. There are no obvious clues to the date of this printing, but in view of the ephemeris not having revised to include years beyond 1948, it cannot be later than this and seems most likely to date from the 1910s along with the first Macoy Publishing issue of Dalton’s “The Spherical Basis of Astrology”, which was published thus in 1911

[5] A reprint under an altered title of Damian (1991), q.v. below

[6] The author lived from August 24, 1922 to October 2, 1984. This volume was produced from unfinished manuscripts left behind after his death by others who had been involved with him as part of the Wisdom’s Goldenrod Centre for Philosophic Studies in Valois, New York, a group he had founded in 1972, and whose activities appear to have included study and meditation

[7] It is not immediately apparent whether it is Wisdom’s Goldenrod or Larson Publications that is a division of the Paul Brunton Philosophic Foundation. The word order has been reproduced as printed

[8] The original copyright date is 2000

[9] The main title page continues with a notice of the G. C. treatise to follow: ‘Also hereunto is added a brief Treatise of Mathematicall Phisicke…’ (the remainder takes almost exactly the same form as the separate title page for the G. C. treatise

[10] The identity of this author is not known. He is represented perplexingly as “Buxtorfius, Joannes Ludovicus” in the Arhat Bibliography (in the Association for the Retrieval of Historical Astrological Texts Journal No. 1)

[11] This leaf is supposed to have been cut out and its parts fitted to two volvelle diagrams earlier in the book, but this has not yet been done; and in view of the antique age of the book probably now never will be

[12] Of 68: lacks leaf A2 ‘To the Courteous Reader’ with diagram ‘On the Anatomie of Man’s Body’ to the reverse; following the 66 (of 68) pages, a fold-out table of ‘planetary howers’ is also missing from this copy.

[13] Copyrighted 1992, so this is clearly a slightly later printing of the JustUs edition. It has been retyped chiefly from the original English edition “Imprinted at London by Thomas Pursfoote, and are to be sold at his shop without Newgate over against Saint Sepulchers Church, 1583”, but also reportedly with reference to a 1609 printing

[14] The text is continuous; the error is in the pagination

[15] The title has been inaccurately and incompletely rendered by Kessinger, even to the point of the author’s surname being incompletely rendered. The facsimile of the original title page reads: “Ad Astrorum Iudicia Facilis Introductio Claudio Darioto Pomarcensi Medico ac Mathematico authore. Eiusdem Tractatus De Electionibus Principiorum idoneorum rebus inchoandis. Quibus Accessit Fragmentum de morbis & diebus Criticis ex astrorum motu cognoscendis, eodem authore: Ad illustrisssimum & eruditissimum virum dominum Anthonium Themam Savium doctorem medicum Lugdunensem”. The original imprint is difficult to read in places but appears to be: “Apud Mauricium Rey, et Ludovicum Pesnet, Lugduni, 1557”.

[16] A monochrome facsimile of the original published Apud Mauricium Rey, & Ludouicum [?] Pesnet, Lugduni, 1557.

[17] Stated as being ‘an enlarged and revised edition of the original title Organum Quarterni first published by CSA Press in 1968’

[18] The leaf that should comprise pp. 275-6 appears to have been cut out of this copy.

[19] “The Senior Minister of the Dublin Unitarian Church”

[20] The original copyright date is given as 1973

[21] The original copyright date is given as 1961

[22] Hand-dated “[19]64” by a former owner

[23] Dated 1975, but this may relate only to the first impression, of which this is likely to be  a later reprint

[24] The original copyright date is given as 1976

[25] Copyrighted 1976, but this may be a later undeclared reprinting

[26] This date, however, may relate only to the first impression
