Do you have any special collections related to Theosophy?


The Andover-Harvard Theological Library has one of the largest collections of 19th c. Theosophical literature.  The books (discoverable in HOLLIS, our catalog) came mostly from members of the former Theosophical Society in America.  We also have letters of an important Theosophical leader -- Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.  The Blavatsky Letters include correspondence between Madame Blavatsky and William Quan Judge, who was general secretary of the American Section of the Theosophical Society. Background information about these letters appeared in the October-January,1992-1993, double issue of Theosophical History, and the letters themselves were transcribed and published in volumes 5-6, 1994-1996, of this publication.
