Very good – overall. A nice selection of hard to find first editions, numbers 2, 4, and 8 are uncommon, 3, 5, 6, and 7 are scarce, with the Fragment of Autobiography now increasingly rare £125

T2H. Besterman, T, A Dictionary of Theosophy, 1st edition, Theosophical Publishing House 1927, small 4to, blue cloth with gilt titles to spine, 18 + 147pp; a useful an d fairly comprehensive dictionary of Theosophical terms including pronunciation guide. Cloth rather rubbed, faded and marked in places, spine dull, edges of text block spotted, vertical crease to rear end paper, light foxing to first and last few leaves, minor spots to the odd margin, text clean and tight, a good, approaching good + overall copy of the uncommon original issue £12

T5B. Blavatsky, H.P, The Secret Doctrine: The Synthesis of Science, Religion, and Philosophy, 1888, Theosophical Publishing Society 1918, Royal 8vo, 4 volumes complete in matching blue cloth with gilt titles to spines, 24 + 740pp,  20 + 842pp, 20 + 594pp with diagrams in the text and 2 folding plans, 346 + 27pp index volume. A reprint of the 3rd  revised and enlarged edition of this monumental study of occultism and religion, first published in 1895, and benefiting greatly from G.R.S Mead’s editorial work; and therefore, for me and many others, this is still the best edition. Light bumping and rubbing to corners, spine ends rubbed, a few relatively minor marks to boards, small ink note to title page of volume one and a pencil quote from Blavatsky to the front end paper by a previous owner, minor soiling to end papers, trivial spots to the odd margin, text clean and tight in all volumes. Inner margin of volume three opposite the title page neatly reinforced with clear tape, otherwise a near very good set and increasingly scarce as such £100
