Blavatsky on the Internet Archive

The Internet Archive is a non-profit digital library that offers texts free of charge online. “Its purposes include offering permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format.” Protecting our right to know, exercising our right to remember, it believes that “open and free access to literature and other writings has long been considered essential to education and to the maintenance of an open society.”

The listing on its database of books available by or about HPB online, over a hundred titles in their original editions, can be seen here.

Of course there are many more titles than this by HPB online, but at the Internet Archive one can actually see what the original book looked like (and how many times they have been downloaded).
