Vol 8 Page xxi
FOREWORD TO VOLUME EIGHT
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.
