Violet Tweedale’s copy of The Secret Doctrine

The Hermetic Library Blog provides the following facsimiles of pages from an 1888 edition of Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine. The set, described as “A unique autographed association copy belonging to Violet Tweedale [1862-1936] with copious fascinating and erudite marginalia in pencil,” includes the Third Volume and the index issued at the time. “Tweedale, a British author, was a close associate of H.P.B., an initiate of the Order of the Golden Dawn, and a respected psychic. Tweedale herself published over 30 books on spiritualist subjects. Her comments should be of great interest to scholars in the field of esoterica generally and Theosophy in particular.”

Tweedale’s copy, autographed by her and bearing her notations in The Secret Doctrine, is for sale on eBay.
