This secret society has had a direct and profound influence on Western culture with famous and prominent figures throughout history being part of the organization. Just to name a scant few of the exhaustive list: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Franklin and Theodore Roosevelt, King Edward VII and King Edward VIII, Sir Ernest Shackleton, Voltaire and Mozart are past brothers of the organization. A complete list would fill pages!!
Overall this is an excellent investment opportunity as antique Masonic books continue to increase in value and become ever scarcer, as well as a chance to own an authentic piece of Masonic history.
This book is in good condition, shelfwear & small splitting to Top & bottom of spine, rubbing on corners, otherwise, the covers are in excellent condition with a few minor stain marks & scratches. Endpapers are clean, unmarked & have no cracking in the gutters. The text is clean and has no foxing, stains, writing, no torn or missing pages. Overall, an excellent book with wear to the leather (leather is drying out).
