Dallas warns readers but here is a question....

Dallas once wrote on Theos-Talk:

"If you wish I can give you as an example the little book that
the Adyar Theosophical Publishing House issued under H.P.Blavatsky's
name as PRACTICAL OCCULTISM   It is one of the articles she wrote.
If you have a copy then compare it with the same article you have
reprinted by the U.L.T. in OCCULTISM OR RAJA-YOGA. The U.L.T.
is verbatim from H.P.Blavatsky's original article -- remember
proof reading it myself years ago. The ADYAR version has been
heavily edited. . . .

"In U.L.T. I don't have to worry -- the originals are available on a
reliable basis . . . . Personally I would rather deal with
H.P.Blavatsky's 'mistakes' than with those created by others who have
had the temerity to believe they knew better than she did, and had
the audacity to introduce changes which she did not authorize. . . ."


Notice Dallas warns readers against the Adyar version of OCCULTISM
OR RAJA-YOGA because it has been heavily edited. 

Why isn't he warning readers against the Theosophy Company's 
editions of THE VOICE and A MODERN PANARION since these two works 
are ALSO heavily edited??
