About Book

Book Description
Writing from London to William Q. Judge in late 1889, Constance Wachtmeister announced, "We have now in the Press a Theosophical Birthday Book with 'Gems from the East.' H.P.B. has written down all these axioms and the book will I think be a popular one."

A precept or axiom, compiled chiefly from Oriental sources, is given for each day of the year, while more lengthy selections from poets and philosophers introduce the months. Attractively bound, with original pen drawings, this perennial calendar book makes a thoughtful gift.

From the Publisher
Theosophical University Press, publisher of quality theosophical literature since 1886

In 1849 she married N. V. Blavatsky, and shortly thereafter began more than 20 years of extensive travel, which brought her into contact with mystic traditions the world over. She was the principal founder of The Theosophical Society in New York City in 1875, and devoted her extraordinary literary talents to its humanitarian and educational purposes until her death in London, England,on May 8, 1891.
