You're right, vol. 4 is not available anywhere, not even in Google Books. But I don't wish to purchase it. The Ransom book should be sufficient for my purposes, especially as it is focused on the TSA anyway.
However, if you happen across any tidbits in Ross of particular interest, by all means share if you like.
Unless the TS plans to print it again it would be nice of them to release it from copyright.
It is interesting that Annie Besant was such an apparently charismatic individual. Another consideration is that the breakaway groups themselves split up in some cases.
Are either A. P. Warrington or L. W. Rogers mentioned? During the former’s presidency Krotona was established. During Roger’s presidency Wheaton was obtained.
I have a copy and the paper is very brittle and was published in 1938 and I think it is still under copyright. I found that when the American Section seceded, and those who did not secede formed the new American Section of TS and the rebuilding started with a lecture tour by Annie Besant and of course the labors of many leading members was responsible for rebuilding the section as we know it today. The seceded Section almost disappeared.
It is high time that TS releases the book to public domain so that it can be scanned and made available to everyone. Visiting wiki on copyright, I found it interesting that it had its origins in state trying to control what is printed and circulated and this took place after printing was invented. Later it was used to help authors make a living by their creativity.
