Re: Theos-World CWL, A.B. & FALSE DISCIPLESHIP

Until the book "Is This Theosophy?" was reprinted by Kessinger, it was one
of the rarest books one can find in any theosophical library - most
libraries did not have a copy, whether they did not purchase or they were
not available for public use/circulation. In about four decades, I saw only
two copies of the original publication. For any one interested in
theosophical history, it has very valuable first hand information.
