A wide range of articles of interest to theosophists, both generally and specifically of interest to the Australian lodges. Also letters, reviews, notices, related advertisements, etc. The magazine of the Theosophical Society of Australia ran from 1926 to 1933. From 1926 to 1929 it was independent and edited by C.W. Leadbeater; in 1929 it became the official organ of The Theosophical Society in Australia and General-Secretary Harold Morton became the editor with Leadbeater as co-editor. The majority of the magazine's issues are here. A scarce resource for researchers and theosophists. Item #102829
