Born in Dublin in 1851, William Quan Judge came to the United States (with his father) at the age of thirteen, arriving in New York in 1864. He became a citizen in 1872 and was admitted to the bar in that year. Having from boy-hood shown an interest in mystical matters, it was natural for him to make inquiries which led him to Madame Blavatsky, whom he met in 1874. In the following year he was one of the co-founders - with H.P. Blavatsky and Henry S. Olcott - of the Theosophical Society. When these two associates in the Movement went to India in 1879, Judge carried on the work of the Society in the United States. He started the American monthly, The Path, in 1886, and thereafter wrote for it unceasingly until the time of his death in 1896.

This book presents the bulk of his contributions to the Path, and articles written for the Theosophist, founded by H.P.B. in 1879 in India, for Lucifer [1], begun in 1887 in England, also by H.P.B., and for one or two other journals. As a result of his efforts, the Theosophical Society grew to major proportions in the United States.
