Collected Writings VOLUME VIII
At this point in the chronological sequence of H. P. B.’s writings, begins the period of her brilliant and
dynamic Editorials, as well as other essays and articles, in the pages of the newly-started monthly journal
Lucifer. The first issue of this magazine is dated September 15, 1887, and the title-page describes it as: A
Theosophical Magazine, designed to “bring to light the hidden things of darkness,” a description fully
justified by the many remarkable articles which appeared in its pages as time went on.
Lucifer began to be published only four months after H. P. B. had settled in London, having come over
from Ostende, Belgium, at the insistent urging of Bertram and Archibald Keightley and others. For a short
time, the magazine was published by George Redway, in York Street, Covent Garden, but the same Fall the
Theosophical Publishing Company was organized with a capital of £1,500, and took over the publication of
Lucifer and whatever else was being brought out by the indefatigable workers in London.
From the very first issue, and until October, 1888, the Editorial responsibility for Lucifer was shared by
H. P. B. with Mabel Collins, which was the nom de plume of Mrs. Kenningale Cook. Considering the
important role that she played in the Movement, it has been thought advisable to include a rather
comprehensive biographical sketch of her career in the Bio-Bibliographical Index of the present Volume, to
which the student is referred.— Compiler.
Collected Writings VOLUME VIII
The material in the present Volume is in direct chronological sequence to the writings
contained in Volume VII, and includes several very important and scholarly contributions
from H. P. B.'s pen.
With this Volume we enter her Lucifer cycle of writing which produced some of her
most brilliant Editorials and some of her most scholarly essays. We also reach at this stage
the beginning of her famous controversy with the Abbé Roca.
No special acknowledgements are required in connection with this Volume, as the same
individuals have helped in its production as those already fully mentioned in the Foreword to
Volume VII.
We are deeply grateful for the continued interest they have shown in this endeavor, and
the willing help they have given, each in his or her way, towards the successful completion
of the Manuscript.
August 11th, 1958.
