 No overall title page is present in this copy, but the title of the original magazine is inferred from the use of this name in the editor’s address to readers at the start of the volume.
 The present volume is a slightly later compilation of a periodical published erratically by the author in what can reasonably be presumed to have been a very small circulation. Most internal contents suggest 1858, though one letter printed is dated 1850. An advertisement at the back of Zadkiel’s Almanac for 1858 indicates that the magazine commenced publishing as a monthly on September 1st, 1857. It would seem probable from the available evidence that it ran only until some time in 1858 before ending, whereupon this compilation was produced for continuing sale.
