After studying the original records, my take on the 
THEOSOPHICAL GLOSSARY is that the work was compiled by
HPB from more than 25 other titles to which she added
her own comments. Therefore I don't think it would be proper
to "phase" the book out, whatever that might involve.

My own findings are to be found at:
