New York: Redding & Co, 731 Broadway, 1888 . 0. A scarce early printing of the Cabalist ritual in code. A very good wallet-style leather binding. 5.75" x 4" x 0.5" . pp.198 . Maroon calf over thin board in a wrap-round (wallet-style) binding. Simple blind stamp decoratoion to back and front covers. The front flap also has the initials "W B". Hinges carefully strengthened and blended to match the original leather binding. All page edges bright gilt. Marbled endpapers. Printed title and clean text throughout. A description of this book by Don Carr states: "Masonic-type rituals—featuring a “M[aster] Cabalist”—in a code reminiscent of IF U CN RD THIS, with a few other signs and symbols (among others, x and ) thrown in. Thus, “W-t. ws. th-n. s-d. t. u-.” is “What was then said to you?” Assuming a familiarity with Masonic rites and a little practice, Cabala is almost readable.

[ STEVENS, THADDEUS 1792-1868 / LEFEVER, JACOB 1795-1875 ] .
Free-Masonry Unmasked or Minutes of the Trial of a Suit in the Court of Common Pleas of Adams County, wherein Thaddeus Stevens, esq. was Plaintiff and Jacob Lefever, Defendant.
Gettysburg, PA. (Pennsylvania) : R. W. Middleton, Printer And Publisher, 1835 . 0. Minutes of the trial of a suit in the Court of Common Pleas of Adams County. First edition. A very good tight binding. 8vo. 7.25" x 4.75" x 0.25". pp.93. Early grey papered boards, with later paper covered spine. Title with printed vignette of a Masonic ritual. Clear English text throughout. Light spotting to a few pages. All pages uniformly toned. A well preserved copy of this early anti-masonic publication. VG. ** "Thaddeus Stevens (April 4, 1792 – August 11, 1868) was a member of the United States House of Representatives from Pennsylvania .. In September 1833, Stevens was elected to a one-year term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives as an Anti-Mason, and once in the capital Harrisburg sought to have the body establish a committee to investigate Masonry. Stevens gained attention far beyond Pennsylvania for his oratory against Masonry, and also quickly became expert in legislative maneuvers. In 1835, a split among the Democrats put the Anti-Masons in control of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, the legislature. Granted subpoena powers, Stevens summoned leading state politicians who were Masons, including Governor George Wolf. The witnesses invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and when Stevens verbally abused one of them, it created a backlash that caused his own party to end the investigation. The fracas cost Stevens reelection in 1836, and the issue of Anti-Masonry died in Pennsylvania. Nevertheless, Stevens remained an opponent of the order for the rest of his life." - See Wikipedia. *** In his newspaper Jacob Lefever (1795-1875), founder and editor of the gettysburg Compiler, had castigated Thaddeus Stevens and his Anti-Masonry activities.. the Compiler printed a letter which referred indirectly to Stevens as a murderer.. Stevens then sued Lefever for Libel in both criminaland civil proceedings.." - See Selected papers of Thaddeus Stevens.

The New Musical Instrument.; An Advert and report for the Lauch of the Masonic Life-Boat (Albert Edward) at Clacton-on-Sea; Provincial Grand Lodge Of Suffolk; etc. ** ".. By the 1850s publishers had rapid and reliable access to the whole country, in addition, time spent travelling by rail created a demand for material to read. The growing number of freemasons were part of an expanding middle class who travelled and read, and these factors help to explain why, within three years of each other, two new, weekly masonic newspapers were launched, The freemason in 1869, and The freemasons’ chronicle in 1872. It is also surely no coincidence that the first weekly masonic publications were launched after the removal of the last of the stamp and paper taxes in 1855 and 1861 respectively, commonly referred to as the taxes on knowledge. As Brake points out, after these taxes were abolished there was a rise in daily and weekly serials. The newspaper reported freemasons’ involvement in national events, for example in the issue for the 27th October 1877, there is a notice concerning the Freemasons Indian Famine Fund. The regular column, ‘Masonic and general tidings’ always tended to include items of general interest such as short reviews of good restaurants in London and details of the Lord Mayor’s show. By the 1880s the newspaper had a special column which reviewed the plays on in the London theatres. A further indication of the leisure activities and interests of those who read the newspaper. The newspaper always included reports of lodge meetings, with a section specifically for London lodges. These reports often give a detailed account of an event or a meeting, listing individuals who attended and can be a very useful source of information about London freemasons and masonic life. Similarly the obituaries, some of which are very detailed and include pictures, provide insight into an aspect of a man’s life which in many cases has remained hidden. Between 1873 and 1885 the Rev. Adolphus Frederic Alexander Woodford acted as editor. Woodford was a formidable masonic scholar and drew around him some of the great masonic scholars of the time. As a result articles by such men began to appear in the newspapers pages and helped to ignite a lively debate about the accepted views of masonic history. The newspaper was reflecting the interests and concerns of a growing number of freemasons who were believed in a more disciplined and erudite approach to masonic history. In 1886, a year after Woodford stepped down as editor, Quatuor Coronati Lodge, No. 2076 was formed with the aim of being the premier research Lodge and Woodford was one of its founding members. The newspaper demonstrated that a new approach to the history of freemasonry was in demand by the brethren, and the success of the research lodge, which still exists today, built on the foundations which the paper had laid.." - See Fraternal Communications: The Rise Of The English Masonic Periodical by Rebecca Coombes, 2009 . *** George Kenning. The son of an East End oyster seller, Kenning realised the potential of the market: he not only manufactured the costumes, but sold a range of products from his shops across Britain. He set up a mail order business which operated across the British Empire and was keen to develop new markets in the USA. He became a media magnate and advertised in his own widely read newspaper: The Freemason. He even extended the brand by becoming closely involved in developing new Masonic orders all of which needed special costumes and props.

"We have..endeavoured to weave a picture of the Lodge from the threads of the human incidents - the grave and the gay, the successes and the reverses, the creditable and the discreditable. It might seem indeed, that we have dwelt unduly on the scandalous side of Lodge affairs. Yet there is a lesson to be learned from these incidents. In their time many of them must have seemed absolute calamities to the brethren concerned. Yet the Lodge has survived and flourished."

When consecrated its number was 849, in 1832 it became No.578 and in 1863 No.403. It would appear that no mention is made in the minutes of the fact that the number was altered.

At the time of its consecration there appears to have been no other Lodge existing in the County." - See Hertford Lodge No. 403.
