Re: Some issues regarding discovery of SD owned by Einstein
Sep 15, 2010 03:34 PM
MKR, the reason I did NOT mention who possessed the HPB manuscript is
because I was told and assured many times by the Theosophy Company
officials that the Theosophy Company was indeed going to publish the
manuscript as a book. And this was confirmed by other people
involved in the project.
That is also the reason that no attempt was made to scan the material.
This was a project that was being undertaken by the Theosophy Company
people and was going to cost them money to publish. Among other
reasons, it would therefore not have been fair to try to publish the
material online at the same time.
Even two years ago when Michael Gomes was then involved in the
project it is my undertanding that it was done in conjunction with
the Theosophy Company and the plan was to have the Theosophy Company
I only wanted the material published and I also thought that when
published by the Theosophy Company it would not have cost anymore
than any other book published by them.
As far as I know, the Theosophy Company has the original material and
I suppose could still publish their own version and/or even put up on
their website an online version.
You and other interested persons should write directly to the
Theosophy Company about this. I already have.
