MORTON Elsie K  
Crusoes of Sunday Island
Crusoes of Sunday Island for sale in New Zealand Crusoes of Sunday Island for sale in New Zealand

Tom Bell was a born pioneer who, after fighting in the Maori wars of the sixties decided that the one thing he wanted more than anything else was to find an uninhabited Pacific Island, take his wife and young children there, and open it up as a trading station.
In 1878 they came eventually to Sunday Island six hundred miles north of Auckland.
This is a desert island story. It has elements of both Robinson Crusoe and The Swiss Family Robinson, but has the added interest of being absolutely true.
Sunday Island is a tiny fertile volcanic island which was haunted by ill-luck. From the start the family had to live the life of desert islanders.
They had bought food supplies from the captain of the trading schooner from which they landed, but when they began to unpack the cases of food they found all of it rotten.
They had been deserted as well as cheated, for the schooner never returned and it was nearly another year before they saw anyone.
Tom and Frederica Bell raised a family of ten in utter isolation and after years of effort and setbacks they made an Eden of their island only to lose it in the end.
The story was told to the author by one of Tom Bell's daughters who was nine years old when the family landed on the island.

The mayor of Brentwood dedicates a new lakeside playground, and the Allen clan were there to enjoy the event and cover it for the Advance newspaper.
On their way home, Sandy and Ken opt for a short cut, and rescue Ralph Conner from the wreck of his truck. However, this last incident in a string of bad luck, could cause the Conner Brother Trucking Company to lose its insurance coverage, and end of their business. It's up to Ken and Sandy to prove a conspiracy is involved.
Despite repeated attempts to explain the circumstances surrounding Ralph's crash, nothing concrete is achieved.
When Mr. Randolph Dutton enters and offers to buy out the company, suspicions are raised. When the name of James Tolliver becomes involved, the boys find out from Granger that the mob may be in on the action.
Further investigations at the lake on the outskirts of Brentwood, reveal the whole sordid plot. Ken and Sandy must escape a gas filled tunnel and a final battle with the forces arrayed against them, before successfully unraveling the Clue of the Phantom Car.

The Secret Doctrine
3 volumes.
Collected Writings series (1888)
cover image of The Secret Doctrine, Collected Writings series for sale in New Zealand

Volume 1- Cosmogenesis, 2- Anthropogenesis, 3- General index and bibliography.
Unabridged Verbatim of Original Edition of 1888.
A large quantity of material dealing with the history of occultism as contained in the lives of the great Adepts of the Aryan Race, and showing the bearing of occult philosophy upon the conduct of life, as it is and as it ought to be.
What is contained in this work is to be found scattered throughout thousands of volumes embodying the scriptures of the great Asiatic and early European religions. What is now attempted is to gather the oldest tenets together and to make of them one harmonious and unbroken whole. The publication of many of the facts herein stated has been rendered necessary by the wild and fanciful speculations in which many Theosophists and students of mysticism have indulged in their endeavor to, as they imagined, work out a complete system of thought from the few facts previously communicated to them. But it is perhaps desirable to state unequivocally that the teachings, however fragmentary and incomplete, contained in these volumes, belong neither to the Hindu, the Zoroastrian, the Chaldean, nor the Egyptian religion, neither to Buddhism, Islam, Judaism nor Christianity exclusively.
The Secret Doctrine is the essence of all these. Sprung from it in their origins, the various religious schemes are now made to merge back into their original element, out of which every mystery and dogma has grown.
This edition has copious editorial notes and many black and white photographic plates throughout volumes 1 and 2.

He describes the Atlantean and Lemurian Root Races and their civilisations, which developed the first concepts of 'good' and 'evil'.
They manipulated natural forces, laid the foundation for human legal and ethical systems, and defined and nurtured the distinctive yet complementary powers of men and women.
They brought humankind, many centuries ago, to its highest artistic, intellectual, and spiritual attainments.
He discusses the supersensible parts of the human being.

The Stone Speaks
The Memoir of a Personal Transformation.

While convalescing after a motor accident, Maud Oakes visited the home of C. G. Jung in Switzerland. There she encountered a block of stone that Jung had designed and carved with signs, symbols, and inscriptions that drew on Greco-Roman religious ideas and the symbolism of astrology and alchemy.
The Stone Speaks is her meditation on the personal and transpersonal meaning of the Stone and her extensive correspondence with Jung regarding her interpretations and her account of the healing and transformation that took place through her inner change, achieved by synthesis and integration.
She shows that the influence of one's culture need not be antithetical to the spontaneous production of symbolism for one who can enter into the creative spirit of giving meaningful expression in some art form to the non-rational contents of the unconscious, as Jung did when he brought into visible form what he saw on the face of his block of stone.
