Book Description: This peer-reviewed study represents a culmination of years of research into the history of the Theosophical Society. In this unique project which combines biographies with source analyses, Jeffrey D. Lavoie records a detailed history of the early Theosophical Society and examines its relationship with the modern Spiritualist movement between the years 1875-1891. Special attention has been paid to some of the neglected figures associated with these organizations including Arthur Lillie- the Gnostic-occultist and early critic of the Theosophical Society; the Davenport Brothers- the Spiritualist mediums who developed many of the standard elements which became associated with modern Spiritualism; Alfred Wallace- the prominent scientist, Spiritualist, and supposed member of the Theosophical Society and many others. This work will appeal to a wide array of readers including those interested in modern religious movements, Western Esotericism, South Asian history, and Victorian studies.

Book Description: The colorful history of the Theosophical Society in America. Although Helena P. Blavatsky and Henry S. Olcott founded the Theosophical Society in New York in 1875, they left the country in 1878 for India, where they established the international headquarters. It might seem that the three short years would not be long enough to establish firm roots here, yet by 1886 there were 14 branches in cities as far flung as St. Louis, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The American Section was formally chartered in 1886, and this book was published in 1987 -- a century as full of events and change for the Society as for the country itself.

Book Description: 1925. Three Lectures delivered by Besant, in the Kensington Town Hall, London, to Fellows of the Theosophical Society. From the beginning of the Theosophical Society, Theosophists have been strong individualists who have stressed the importance of freedom of thought. Freedom of thought includes the freedom to either affirm or reject any person's claims to occult authority. This was a matter of contention at times within the Theosophical Society and Besant raises this issue in the lectures. See other works by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Book Description: 1925. This book contains a brief history of the Theosophical Society's growth from 1875-1925, issued in commemoration of the jubilee of the Theosophical Society by its General Council. A large number of the illustrated found within are from photographs that were forty to fifty years old at the time of the original publication, so we did our best to reproduce them as clearly as possible. Many members of the TS cooperated in compiling the material for this volume.
