3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By A. Drinkwater Johnson on October 18, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Replete with illustrations, this is also one of the better books on masonry available. Masonry's history, so entertwined with that of the founding of the U.S. in philosophy and symbolism, should be a subject for all school children. Rather than focusing on closed doors, this respectful narrative opens to all the beautiful imagery of masonry and associated subjects.

Not limited to architectural discussions, Curl reviews the music and contemporary sets of The Magic Flute more comprehensibly than elsewhere, seen in a light of many arts (and cultures) at once.

This largely silent part of the history of western civilization is good reading for just about anyone wanting at once broader and more specific historical knowledge; it should be requisite for every student of architecture.
