A good intro, but very dated, and contains what is now kown to be
inaccurate information. A good buy nonetheless. If you are new to the
list or theosophy, don't look for a Quest Bookshop on every street
corner, but never fear, any occult bookseller should be able to supply it!
Diond Fortune's terminology is useful, as she was a theosophist before
she specialised in Qabalah. The difference in spelling is idiosyncratic.
She left the Theosophical Society around the time she established the
Society of the Inner Light. which still functions in the UK, but with
*very* different ideas.
If you are buying books, also look for Halevi: "The Way of Kabbalah."
He was never a theosophist. Also known as Warren Kenton, he has a
number of Kabbalist titles to his credit, including his intro under Kenton,
"The Tree of Life."
I can recommend a great many books on this subject (my life's work).
