Description:

Behold a true rarity – an 1860 First Edition of Jabez Richardson’s MONITOR OF FREE-MASONRY.

RICHARDSON’S MONITOR OF FREE-MASONRY was one of the first comprehensive works on Freemasonry to be published in the wake of the widespread Anti-Masonic movement of the mid-19th century. With this highly detailed and illustrated book, Richardson hoped to dispel public prejudice against Freemasons, while at the same time furnish the Masonic brotherhood with a true guide to all the degrees offered by the fraternity – including the Ineffable and Historic Degrees -- and the ceremonies associated with them (for a full list see below).

He writes in the Preface:

In the following pages I have endeavored to give exact descriptions of the Masonic ceremonies as they are (or should be) performed in the Lodges, Chapters, &c., of each degree. The information is intended, not only for the public at large who have a curiosity to fathom the wonderful secrets of Free Masonry, but for newly formed Masonic societies, who desire a printed guide to facilitate their work.

Comparatively few persons among the multitudes who join the Masonic Lodges, extend their knowledge of the Craft beyond the Royal Arch Degree; and to such as have not been advanced, this work will be read with much interest. By the aid of it they may become familiar with the higher degrees of Modern Masonry – with the Ineffable Degrees – and with those curious and enthusiastic Historical and Philosophical Degrees …

RICHARDSON’S MONITOR OF FREE-MASONRY is a complete guide to the Masonic tradition. It illuminates all of the secret Masonic signs, tokens and grips. It reveals all the words, pass-words, sacred words, and hieroglyphics used by Masons in the lodges and among themselves.

RICHARDSON’S MONITOR OF FREE-MASONRY is also illustrated with numerous cryptic engravings illuminating the ceremonies, symbols, etc.

RICHARDSON’S MONITOR OF FREE-MASONRY is a fascinating glimpse into the world’s oldest secret society. And a very rare item for the discriminating Masonic collector.
