Re: The Theosophical Glossary by HPB or Mead!?

Morten,

I have looked for the original manuscript of HPB's
Theosophical Glossary.  As far as I know it is not
extant except for the title page.

After some extensive research I am confident that
what was published in 1892 as the Theosophical Glossary
is HPB's work.  G.R.S. Mead may have slightly edited
the existing text but I see no good reason for thinking
that Mead or anyone else "played a trick" on HPB.  This
hypothesis is flawed and doesn't hold up when closely
examined.

In my notes published on Theos-talk which you made
reference to, I went over many points in some detail.
My notes can be found at:
