[1] The internal advertising makes apparent that the planned series was directed by a Dr. Charles A. Logan of Fairhope, Alabama, assisted by Jennings. Six further titles were slated for subsequent release, including two by Jennings and two by Logan, but I’m not aware of any evidence that any of them was ever published in practice

[2] This book is a compilation of his two 1930s-era pamphlets on financial astrology, ‘Major Trends in American Economics’ (q. v., below) and ‘Astro-Economic Interpretation’ (not in this collection), together with a shorter, obscure work from 1961 entitled ‘Market Charts’ (likewise). The compilation was edited by Jensen himself, his foreword being dated September 1977 

[3] Dated 1978 to title page, but this is clearly a later undeclared reprint

[3a] US copyright records suggest March 1938, which is supported by postage date stamped on the envelope retained with this copy: ‘Mar 29, 1938’

[3b] An active figure in the astrological community in her day, said to have been involved with the West Coast Convention of Scientific Astrologers in 1943

[4] A series of publications collectively edited by the Vorderasiatischen Gesellschaft

[5] A collection of 21 essays by different scholars including W. Hübner, J.-H. Abry, J. Halbron[n], G. Bezza, and the editors of the present volume

[6] A compilation of four one-page and fourteen multi-page articles with a spiritual focus on astrology. The articles have been previously separately issued over an extended period; and the authors note that the idea to prepare the volume began 12 years previously (thus presumably in or around 1935) but that the first article had already been written before that

[7] After the original edition of 1933

[8] Appears an unaltered reprint of the 1929 edition

[9] Republished thus. Previously reprinted in In Search magazine in 1958. Library records indicate that the first edition was published in San Diego, California, in 1934

[10] The flyer gives Johndro’s then address a 211 Central Building, Rochester, N. Y., but it has been corrected in pencil to San Bernadino, Calif.

[10a] A disbound partial copy, formerly in the possession of Catherine Thompson, of a different, apparently later printing of the complete course shown below. The paragraphs have been reset and some text altered, in addition to the subtitle “Mail Order Course of Lessons in Astrology” having notably been removed, as compared with the original edition

[10b] There is clear evidence of a former staple binding having been removed

[11] Presumed to date from the early 1930s  from the fact of the paper matching that of other Louise Johnson materials from 1932

[12] The accompanying advertisement for an annual for 1937 strongly indicates a publication date of late 1936

[13] A series of publications edited at this time by H. S. Versnel, D. Frankfurter and J. Hahn

[14] A collection of ten essays by nine different scholars including the editors. They concern non-astrological forms of divination but present valuable intellectual context for ancient Greek divinatory practices.
