For decades, Webb's monitor has been called for and has been a standard in the lodge room. Dealing Critically and impartially with the traditions, customs, records, degrees and ceremonies of the Brotherhood, this manual contains the actual rites of the craft, extending over a period of some seven centuries and that of its grand structures. It is calculated to expalin the nature and design of the Masonic institution, to those who may be desirous of becoming acquainted with its principles, whether for the purpose of initiation into the society, or merely for the gratification of their curiosity.
An often highly guarded and secretive society, the fraternal brotherhood of the Freemasons remains a subject of wild fascination for historians, scholars, and general enthusiasts alike. Thomas Smith Webb's Freemason's Monitor offered a factual glimpse into often aggrandized Masonic Rituals, having a significant impact on the development of Masonic Ritual in America, and especially that of the York Rite. It has been said that no man understood the arrangment and philosophy of masonic rituals quite like Thomas Smith Webb.
The Freemason's Monitor delivers in a single volume the vast history of the craft from Masonic Initiation rituals in the various degrees from Entered Apprentice to The High Order of the Priesthood, along with Symbols, Grips, handshakes, secrets, and regalia. It contains the three degrees of Knighthood including Knights of the Red Cross, The Knights Templar, and the Knights of Malta giving a brief account of the rituals of the craft including installation, encampment, and burial ceremonies. In addition, this book includes the ineffable degrees from Secret master through Knights of the East and West, Prince of the Tabernacle, sublime prince of the Royal Secret, and everything in between. Taken as a whole, the work is one of the most complete book of rituals that has ever been published. Throughout the book is profusely illustrated with hundreds of Symbolic Engravings.
