PB:  According to de Zirkoff, it looks like A.O. Hume translated it into English from an original French copy from KH (which originally was supposed to go to Sinnett (p. 258).  There is a whole bunch on it pp 257-60, vol. 6, Blavatsky Collected Writings (these are worth a year of one's life, at least.)  It seems Blavatsky's friend Mary Gebhard also had an original copy (BCW, p. 494, Zirkoff's Levi short bio.)  'Says both E.O. and Blavatsky made notes to the publication.

>Dear friends,

>I am writing a text for my blog about Eliphas Levi's version of the life of Jesus Christ (which came from Jewish sources).

>The TS edited a book in 1883 called "The paradoxes of the highest science" penned by the French occultist.

>There are some notes signed by E.O (Eminent Occultist) who is believed to be KH. What I want to ask is if the translator is HPB.

>For instance is note 53, E.O made the first statement "But he preached it a century before his birth.--E. O.". The text that follows was written by HPB?

>Thank you in advance for your help.
