Profusely illustrated with numerous color and b&w plates, illustrations & drawings, this set reveals the traditions, customs, symbols, ceremonies, degrees and notable members of the great brotherhood throughout history.
As you can see from the pictures below, the publishers spared no expense in trying to create one of the most richly decorated 2 volume sets ever published to date, just look at all the rich color embossing on the front boards and fabulous designwork done in gold foil gilt on the front & spines. The back boards are richly done in blind stamped Masonic symbols as well.

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 these books continue to increase in value and become ever scarcer, as well as a chance to own an authentic piece of Masonic history.
This set is in very good condition, minor shelfwear to spines with a little tiny splitting in cloth top of spine of Vol I, extremely minor rubbing on corners.
