About This Item

The Supreme council of the Thirty-Third Degree. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Extremely rare, Good+ Condition. No publisher stated but I assume it would be 'The Supreme Council of the 33rd Degree' also difficult to date correctly but probably late 1800's to early 1900's. The Author isn't stated but I'm sure its Albert Pike. Black Cloth boards slightly faded with bright gold gilt title to front board, very small patches around spine on boards where looks like a Moth had a feed at one time, very minor and doesn't affect the work in any way, very minor bumping to corners, binding tight and solid. Pages crisp, clean with minor tanning at edges, no markings throughout work whatsoever, Gold gilt to top edge of pages. 'Readings' was written for members of the Scottish Rite to supplement the ritualistic instruction. This work is similar, in some respects, to Pike's Lectures on Masonic Symbolism, but was considered REQUIRED READING by Pike himself. No Mason can truly understand the Scottish Rite degrees without reading this essential work (See Photos) If you would like more info on this work please contact anytime.

About The Mason's Corner

I am a private collector of interesting, hard to find rare books mainly of a Masonic nature and related subjects but due too personal reasons I have decided to let my collection go. All my listings will be accurately described and contain photos of the actual book for sale. If you are in the States or elsewhere other than Australia please contact me before purchase of the larger and heavier books so I can check shipping costs. In most case I've tried to add the shipping cost straight onto the price of the book. Therefore the prices are not set in stone, IE: prices can be adjusted if purchaser is in Australia.Feel free to ask any questions concerning my listings as well as extra photo's if required.Glenn BrittenThe Mason's corner
