I agree with the majority of what you have said, in fact it is impossible not to disagree with such an intelligent response.
Fortunately (enough) those rejects books are online so easy access is possible now. Takes me back a few years when I first saw the Book of Enoch which was a photocopy, a veritable treaure :)
Some much ancient literature is extinct unfortunately but I am reading the BHAGAVAD -GITA with the interpretation by A.C. BHATIVDANTA SWAMI PRABHUPADA at the moment.
