Dear Frank,

Well, to begin with, I have Robert Froebe's 1899 translation of the 
Secret Doctrine arranged by Franz Hartmann, his Die Weisse und 
Schwarze Magie, and so on.

I was in a same position last year. Now the Slovenian theosopical 
website has about 120 visits per day  in a country with 2 millions 
citizens! So, this information is more than needed and with the 
collaboration all the problems can be solved.

Warmest regards,
