THE MYSTERIES OF FREEMASONRY
Original 1877 Edition of “The Mysteries of Freemasonry or an Exposition of the Religious Dogmas and Customs of Ancient Egyptians; showing from the Origin, Nature, and Object of the Rites and Ceremonies of the Remote Antiquity, their identity with the Order of Modern Masonry, with some remarks on the Metamorphosis of Apuleius” by John Fellows AM :: Published by Reeves and Turner: London :: Measures 4 1/4 x 7" :: Complete with 366 Pages. VERY GOOD CONDITION: A tightly bound volume, some cracking towards middle, cover wear as shown, clean pages throughout; Overall a great copy for age.
The original object of the secret rites of Freemasonry has been a subject of inquiry for upwards of six hundred years, and the enigma seems not to have been satisfactorily solved. The initiated, as well as those without pale of the order, are equally ignorant of their derivation and import.
The intention of this work is to endeavor to unravel the intricate web in which the mystery is involved, by tracing the order back to its source, and, by showing its intimate connection and similitude to institutions more ancient, put it beyond a doubt, that is sprang from, and is a continuation of the rites and ceremonies observed in those establishments. The author leaves no stone unturned throughout antiquity to prove the identity of the ancient mysteries of Eleusis, of the Jews, of the Druids, and of the Egyptians, with those of Freemasonry.
