ATTENTION: CONCERNING THE POSTED VERSION OF
*THE VOICE OF THE SILENCE*
I am glad that some of us have decided to post THE VOICE OF THE SILENCE
on theos-roots and encourage a study discussion of this classic.
But I should tell people that the version posted on theos-roots with
the following(See below) publishing information is not a verbatim copy of the
original edition first published in 1889. About 6 to 8 weeks ago,
I informed John Drais (whose organization was responsible for
posting this version on their Web page) about this. In the meantime
Mr. Drais has been doing some research on the matter to confirm what I
told him. The version posted on theos-roots is NOT verbatim with
the original edition as given by HPB. There are a good number of
changes. Possibly most of the changes are trivial in nature. If
anyone is interested, a verbatim reproduction of the original 1889
edition has been reprinted by THE THEOSOPHICAL UNIIVERSITY
PRESS in Pasadena, CA.
Hopefully, Mr. Drais will post his findings in the near future.
Looking forward to the Voice discussion.
