There are a large number of notes in both The Garden of Cyrus and Hydriotaphia. Footnote references will take you to a file containing the notes; they will open in a new window (called "notes"). You may wish to set the notes and the text side by side on your desktop. The notes are also located at the end of the file; you can scroll down to read them. Please read A note on the texts for more information on the texts and on the notes.

You should be aware that Chapter III is long, as befits the center of the quincunx, with aspects and views in every direction. Memory-limited browsers and slow connections may create some difficulty in loading it. Patience, in this as in other things, will be rewarded.
