Extremely Rare 1738 Edition Of Masonic Book Of Constitutions - James Anderson:
As of today - March 3rd, 2013 I have done a check via some major websites and of course included the international online book search of abebooks - and found only one copy of this available worldwide online at the moment! (And that copy is marked at a price of $3,000). Up for sale is
THE NEW BOOK OF CONSTITUTIONS OF THE ANTIENT AND HONOURABLE FRATERNITY OF FREE AND ACCEPTED MASONS.....written by James Anderson. This was published in 1738 ..."for Brothers Caesar Ward and Richard Chandler..." - in London, England. It has apx 231 pages. Tons of information in it. Please note its few evidences of having been in a small library as discussed in the above discussion pertaining to condition. Spine was stabilized /recovered in black by the library, and there are ink stampings along edges of pages - and I had also noted above, a tear in the main illustration at front. This is an extraordinarily rare book!!!!! Its contents offers insights into the early Freemasons expectations, rules and ritual within the fraternity ...as well as a lot of masonic history. A very stable, complete book of a most fascinating window into the secret society of the Freemasons.... ***Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances I will be out of town March 14-16.This is one of two items I am selling that will be sending funds from sale to a charity known as Rite Care - Funds from this specific sale are going to the masonic funded RITE CARE childhood language program for children. RiteCare provides diagnostic and therapeutic services to children, who are 2-7 years old, whose disorder consists of a severe delay in language or speech development. It also includes a program for their parents. Please examine my various sales - current and upcoming. I try combine shipping however possible. **If you plan on offerding on multiple items, that come up on different days; please give me a warning you are doing that, so that I might delay the initial invoice, until I know for sure if you have multiple wins from my sales. It makes it easier to then send you a combined invoice, with revised shipping fees for you.
