YOU'LL LOVE THIS SET OF BOOKS!!!
It furnishes the cream of Masonry history.
There is no Society so widely known, and yet really so little known, as that of the Free and Accepted Masons. Even many of the members of that Ancient and Honorable Fraternity are strangely uninformed respecting its eventful past.
This set of books furnishes an outline History of Freemasonry, including many FACTS NOT BEFORE PUBLISHED!!!, and presents many practical matters not generally known to the fraternity.
Dealing critically and impartially with the traditions, customs, records, degrees and ceremonies of the Brotherhood, it contains the actual history of the Craft, extending over a period of some six centuries, and that of its grand structures.
The fraternal order of Freemasons has a long and distinguished past and an even more fascinating membership roll. This secret society has had a profound influence on Western culture with the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Voltaire and Mozart as past brothers of the organization. The History of Freemasonry by Albert Mackey provides an in-depth account of this centuries-old institution. Myth here gives up its underlying truth. Research clears away the rubbish, and discloses the sure foundations and majestic arches of a noble structure.
In this work some idols are destroyed, but, in their destruction, nothing is lost but the fables with which degenerate men have sought to embellish a truth, the beauty of whose simplicity they could not discern. The History of Freemasonry studies the development, evolution and events of the fraternal organization known as Masonry.
This history is generally separated into two time periods: before and after the formation of the Grand Lodge of England in 1717.
Before this time, the facts and origins of Freemasonry are not absolutely known and are therefore frequently explained by theories or legends.
After the formation of the Grand Lodge of England, the history of Freemasonry is extremely well-documented and can be traced through the creation of hundreds of Grand Lodges that spread rapidly worldwide.
This set of books is an investigation of the records of the organizations of the fraternity in England, Scotland, Ireland, British Colonies, France, Germany, and the United States. Derived from official sources. Grandly illustrated. The numerous and BEAUTIFUL 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. Partial contents: Ancient mysteries - the Essenes - Roman Collegia - the Culdees; Old charges of British Freemasons; Stonemasons (Steinmetzen) of Germany; Craft guilds (Corps d'Etat) of France; Companionage, or Les Compagnons du Tour de France; Mediaeval operative Masonry; Statutes relating to the Freemasons; Early British Freemasonry (Scotland); Masons' marks; Quatuor Coronati (Four Crowned or Four Holy Martyrs); Apocryphal manuscripts.
