Is there any evidence that TSE read “The light of Asia” by Sir Edwin Arnold during his investigations of Indian spirituality?  It is a book length poem, written as an indian Epic, concerning the life of Buddha.  Published in 1879 it was popular in literary/intellectual circles through at least the turn of the century.  My edition was printed in 1894.
