AN ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FREEMASONRY is the epic work by legendary Freemason Albert G. Mackey with the intention of supplying those with the materials for acquiring knowledge required to make a Masonic Scholar. Over more than a thirty year period, Mackey undertook the massive task of compiling all the works throughout Masonic history and distilling them into these two volumes to provide the knowledge of the science, the philosophy, and the history of the order. While many encyclopedia books differ in tone due to having many writers, Mackey took this massive undertaking by himself. This version, published in 1921 has been carefully revised, preserving as much as possible Dr. Mackey's work untouched, but at the same time to correct statements which later investigations have shown to be unfounded; but all of Dr. Mackey's opinions and theories are left unaltered.
As a whole, the Masonic Scholar will find these works to be one the most complete ever written. Both volumes span a wealth of Masonic material from symbols, rituals, ceremonies, witchcraft, the Knights Templar, George Washington’s Role, and much more. Bound in beautiful brown embossed boards with decorative gilt, these works feature numerous illustrations throughout supplying the reader with a most in-depth account of the institution. Considered by many a must have Masonic Work, the winner of this sale will find these two volumes in great condition a most pleasing set.
