L'Initiation, November 1890, notes the appearance of third issues of this "large review that translates the principal articles that have appeared in L'Initiation." Plantenga was a correspondent of Papus's Groupe d'études ésotériques, a Theosophist (he founded a lodge in Amsterdam that was affiliated with the French Section), a homeopath, and an astrologer -- author of Influence des planètes sur le corps humain. He described himself in this journal as "Gep. Officier van Gezondheid 1e klasse en Magnetiseur" -- "Retired Health Officer First Class and Magnetiseur." The journal proclaimed as its goal the revelation to the present day of the wisdom and science of the Essenes, the Eleusinian mysteries, the Templars, alchemists, etc., and proposed to do so initially by translations from foreign authors, principally from L'Initiation. The journal offered correspondence and book reviews, notably Elise van Calcar's translation of Emma Hardinge Britten's Prof. von Marx en zijn sujet, de gehypnotiseerde. At the end of the second volume Plantenga announced that he had to leave the country for a period and was suspending the journal until his return.
