Review

will be a cherished possession of any Mason who receives it. Retaining all the traditional charm of McKay's Standard Edition, this gift volume includes both the Guide to the Three Symbolic Degrees of the Ancient York Rite and to the degree of Mark Master, Past Master, Most Excellent Master, and the Royal Arch, as written by Malcolm C. Duncan and explained and interpreted through copious notes and numerous original engravings. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is a book a Mason would not want you to have! After reading so much negative garbage about Freemasonry, I bought this book out of curiosity. And when I opened it, boy was I shocked. This book contains all the duegard signs, the illusions, secret hand shakes, and passwords for the first three degrees. It gives the entire initiation process for the first three degrees, from the begining to the ending. It also contains the lectures and the story behind each degree. This book also has the opening of the lodge.

This is a must book for anybody who wants to get a peep inside the lodge. Even though this book is packed with a lot of good information, and give you a lot of insight on the craft and if you study it and somehow be able to master it, you still would not truly be a mason until you come into the Lodge the right way.

This book also contains additional degrees on the York Rite side of masonry. The degrees are Mark Master, Past Master, Most Excellent Master, and The Royal Arch. As for me I'm on the Scottish Rite side of masonry, so the additional information is of no use to me, but it's still good information to read.

If you want to try and fool somebody by saying you are a mason, with this book you might can pull it off. All you have to master is the first three degrees. But be aware, a true mason will throw some stuff at you that will make your head spin. Don't read this book and then go buy masonic gear or vehicle emblems, because if you cain't protect it, might get taken from you. Their's more to freemasonry than reading a book.

I highly recommend this book for anybody who is curious about the craft or anyone who looking to join the Lodge.

Format: Hardcover
This is mildly interesting from a Masonic researchers point of view because the ritual is only somewhat dated. Today's ritual differs by jurisdiction. Most researchers are interested in very old ritual which was never written. This text represents somebody's rendering of some recent past interpretation. Masonically, it is of limited value. The secret of Freemasonry is ineffable. The ritual is designed to make a man think and find the meaning for himself. Read this and know nothing, but have it cause you to seek further light, then you will have something. This is the purpose of the ritual. Do not get hung up in "discovering" Masonry's secret. After all, you can find out everything thing there is to know about it, if you want. The question is: will you do anything with what you learn?

Format: Paperback
This book is a classic, and a treasure. Reading about the rituals of Freemasonry is fascinating, but to see illustrations of the gestures that are described is to take the study up to the next level. Many Masonic symbols are illustrated and codes for reading certain Masonic texts are revealed. This is a handbook for Masons, but those who study without the lodge will gain some insight, from previous reading. This book will not give you a free pass into the lodge...but, it may inspire you to petition one! I keep the Hardback version on-display, beside The Holy Bible and "Freemasonry: A Journey Through Ritual and Symbol," by W. Kirk MacNulty. This Paper-back version is just as impressive as the Hard-back, the other one is simply prettier to look at on the shelf. Either way, you can't lose!

This book gives the entire initiation for the first three degrees and the stories pertaining to each degree. It also includes all the signs and gestures relating to each degree. It is most fascinating and of enormous help to those studying the rituals. I believe this book belongs in every Mason's library.

14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By D. Charles Pyle on July 25, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Beautifully done artwork and cover design. At a time when most Masonic publishers are going to paperback, this hardcover edition is not only pleasing to the eye and a welcome addition to any Masonic library, it is useful to those who are seeking more light and who might need a little extra help in memorizing the lectures and degree work. The only caveat is that the clue to the sanctum sanctorum is purposely witheld and some of the work for the Sublime Degree appears misleading. What is to be expected? The work is not an expose. Not for those seeking to infiltrate the Lodge but a boon to Masons and others who seek to understand or want to be somewhat prepared for their initiations. It can also be of some benefit to the curious. This book is a prized possession on my bookshelf.
