Who Played That Trick On H.P.B.?

The Puzzle of The Theosophical Glossary

         by Boris de Zirkoff

Sometime in the Spring of 1892, the Theosophical Publishing Society in London issued a work entitled The
Theosophical Glossary under the name of H. P. Blavatsky, bearing also the imprint of The Path Office in
New York, and The Theosophists at Adyar, Madras, India.

In the February, 1892, issue of The Path (Vol. VI, p. 358) it is stated that this work will be on sale in six
weeks; and in the April issue of the same year (Vol. VII, p. 28) it is briefly reviewed and described as
being edited by G. R. S. Mead.

This was, of course, about a year after H.P.B.’s death in May, 1891.  (More . . . )
