It is key also to consider that Jones valued Rudhyar's work so well as to grant the requested permission to him to give the astrological world its first public exposure to the Sabian symbols, which appeared in Rudhyar's seminal book, The Astrology Of Personality (1936). This happened nearly twenty years before Jones published his own work on the subject of The Sabian Symbols In Astrology (1953). Later, of course, Rudhyar produced another book of broad significance as well, with his free-wheeling and poetically intense recension of the Sabian symbols as a multi-phasic cycle of transformation in An Astrological Mandala (1973). (In passing, it may clarify somewhat to suggest that to refer to "the Sabian symbols" simply as "the Sabians" is probably insufficient, as the phrase, "the Sabians", actually indicates an ancient Middle-Eastern people, who have their own specific identity or place in history.)

      After the discovery and recording of that highly-regarded set of degree-symbols by Marc Edmund Jones and Elsie Wheeler in a single day at Balboa Park, San Diego, California, 1925 between then and now and for all future times, it is important to recognize that Rudhyar was the only person accorded such open recognition of merit by a co-equal worker in the field. Other writings about the Symbols have appeared, and more may appear later, but none will have or can have the same pre-eminence as the source works of Rudhyar and Jones, Jones and Rudhyar. Given the fact that Jones himself considered the Sabian symbols work to be a highly significant feature in any evaluation of his own contribution as a whole, this speaks volumes as to the high regard of Jones for Rudhyar. At the NASO Astrology Conference in Atlanta in 1979, Dr. Jones addressed a rousing keynote encomium to Rudhyar, calling him the grand "chevalier" or gallant knight of contemporary astrology. Rudhyar in turn dedicated his very special work on zodiacal cycle, The Pulse Of Life, to his friend Marc Edmund Jones.
