THE HISTORY OF FREEMASONRY
AND MASONIC DIGEST



Original 1869/70 Edition of “The History of Freemasonry and Masonic Digest” by J.W.S. Mitchell :: Published by Griffin, Geo: J.W.S. Mitchell :: Measures 6 1/4 x 9 1/2" :: Complete with 1439 Pages + Index.

VERY GOOD CONDITION: Both volumes are tightly bound, solid hinges, moderate foxing throughout, cover wear as shown, complete with all pages and illustrations; overall a very good condition set of these rare Masonic works.


Here is the History of Freemasonry and Masonic Digest by Dr. James W.S. Mitchell. Little known today, Mitchell was the first to venture a major history, with a distinct bias toward the Ancients. Together, both volumes cover the histories of Operative Masonry, Speculative Masonry, the High Grades, the Egyptian Mysteries, and included much material about Solomon; given that Mitchell followed Masonic scholar George Oliver in believing that Solomon was the first Grand Master.

Mitchell’s work illustrates what was known, believed and practiced in Masonry in the United States, in the 1860s time frame – also the period of the American Civil War. Lacking a better foundation, Mitchell was obligated to reason and speculate, based on what little material was available (as there were no Masonic libraries) augmented by his best judgment and intuition. Certainly, Mitchell’s presented facts are both sincere and valuable and is to be credited for a massive undertaking laying the foundation of Masonic history.

As the subtitle suggests, both volumes embrace an account of the order from the building of Solomon’s Temple, its progress throughout the civilized world and the introduction of modern degrees called Masonic, and the first written history of Masonry in the United States. Added to both volumes are the old charges and ancient regulations as collated by the Order of the Grand Lodge of England in 1722; also, The Spurious Laws, as published by Dermott; a Code of Masonic Jurisprudence, illustrated by the author’s answers to questions of law and usage; a dictionary of Masonic Terms; Descriptions of Masonic Jewels, Regalia, and more.

In all ages is has been the object of Freemasonry, not only to inform the minds of its members by instructing them in the sciences and useful arts, but to better their hearts by enforcing the precepts of religion and morality. 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.

Bound in red leather gilt embossed covers with full Gilt Pages, both volumes cover the craft of freemasonry in precise detail from its inception up until the printing of these volumes and would make an excellent addition to a collector’s library.
