What is going on is nothing new. It has happened before. For example, the
well known book by Ernest Wood -- Is this Theosophy.... which was published
in 1936, I did not get to find out about the book until a couple of years
ago. I had been to many TS Lodge Libraries -- some of them had books even
Adyar Library did not have -- and none of them had the book. I don't know if
you have seen the book.
