YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
This is a book a Mason would not wantyou to have! It furnishes, in a single volume, details of Masonic initiation rituals, along with symbols, grips, passwords and regalia. The duegard signs, the illusions, secret hand shakes, and passwords for the first three degrees are all here! It gives the entire initiation process for thethree degrees, from beginning to end, with the story behind each degree and all the signs and gestures relating to it. It also contains additional degrees of Masonry: the degrees are Mark Master, Past Master, Most Excellent Master, and The Royal Arch.
There are nearly 300 ILLUSTRATIONS!!! which show important details of the rituals, including gestures, tools,and symbolic pictures. The illustrations are so numerous thattheymay givethe lay reader an invalid impression thathe finally knows all about the secrets of Masonry. Therefore, for non-masons who are simply curious about Freemasonry, there is a lot here to entertain the eye and bedazzle the mind.
While the parade of illustrations accurately depict Masonic lodge activity, the illustrations may also be distractions cleverly placed by the Author so that non-Masons don'tget whathe is really putting down in the book.
There are mysterious configurations in the illustrations along with clever clues and key words with cryptic connotation in the text. The Chivalric Orders are presented through a system of TACTICS & DRILL OF KNIGHTHOOD to the Commandery, the KNIGHTS TEMPLAR, Knights of Malta, and Knights of the Red Cross.
There is no Society so widely known, and yet really so little known, as that of the Masons. Even many of the members of that Ancient and Honorable Fraternity are strangely uninformed respecting its eventful past.
Dealing critically and impartially with the traditions, customs, records, degrees andceremonies of theBrotherhood, this manual contains the actualrites of the Craft, extending over a period of someseven centuries, and that of its grand structures. Myth here gives up its underlying truth.
The numerous and engravings which adorn this work bear testimony to the earnest desire of the Publishers to spare no effort or expense necessary to the production of a book which should prove in every way satisfactory to those interested in the subject treated. Masons will find this an indispensable tool to bone up on their degree work, and non-Masons will find it simple, informative, and it may even inspire them to petition a lodge and experience the real thing.
