Thanks for the Tookaram Links, the Yogasara Sangraha seemed well constructed and explanatory in reading the first pages and the small Biography has a few interesting comments..

A few views: 

I found three books by Tookaram Tatya in the below list by Caldwell, although Tookaram Tatya produced more than that. 
Maybe the following printed by Tookaram Tatya, who, Blavatsky praised in one of her articles could be good to add... 

The Yogasara-Sangraha by Vijnana Bhikshu, printed by Tookaram Tatya (TS Publishing House, 1894) 

A short biography on Tookaram Tatya has been given by TS Adyar... 
(Here is mentioned some of the books he wrote, and some of those he edited and printed) 

The other books or translations by Tookaram Tatya could be considered. 
He also used the name -Tattva Vivechaka Grantha Prasarak Mandali 

For instance: 
"The Twelve Principal Upanishads, English translation, with notes from the commentaries of SankarÃchÃrya and the gloss of Ãnandagiri. Published by Rajaram Tukaram Tatya " (See 

- - - 
A short note which could be considered and given due value: 
The shift in emphasis from Eastern literature to Westernized literature and popular elementary works is truely remarkable since the early days of the TS and its later offshoots. And one aught to consdider why, whether this was and is a good idea. 

Good quality translations of ancient Eastern Literarture seem not to be given any particular emphasis.

We've added a good number of documents to our webpage titled: 

"Theosophical Publications Online" 


Both pdf and html versions of various books, etc. are given. 

Most of the pdf versions are what we could call "photographic 
facsimiles" of the original (first) editions.
