Announcing the reprint of an important rare document on Madame Blavatsky and
the Mahatmas.

I've just added to the archives the following item:

First Report of the Committee of the Society for Psychical Research,
Appointed to Investigate the Evidence for Marvellous Phenomena offered by
Certain Members of the Theosophical Society

It is reprinted from the rare 1884 edition consisting of 130 pages of text.

This online edition can be found at:
Look in the section titled "New Items Recently Added."

This is NOT the "Hodgson Report" which was the second or final report on
Madame Blavatsky issued by the Society for Psychical Research, London.

A valuable preface written by Leslie Price has been added to this online

The rarity of this "First Report" is mentioned by Mr. Price in his Preface:

"The report which is here made available was private and confidential to SPR
members, and in our time has never been read except by a handful of
psychical researchers and historians of Theosophy.  Copies were on the shelf
in the SPR library, London and in one or two other archives, but students
generally overlooked it. Its republication is therefore a signal service."
