By Cross, Jeremy L.; [S. S. Jocelyn [ill.]

New-Haven: Published and sold by the author [et al.]; A. H. Maltby & Co., Printers, 1821. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 12mo. [2],vi,10-157 pp. including engraved half title, engraved frontispiece, and musical notation in pp. 111-156, plus 21 leaves of plates (1-20 numbered), complete. Later speckled paper over boards, gilt leather label. Moderate foxing throughout. Very good. Scarce first edition of the first illustrated guide to the organization, rituals, and symbolism of the Masonic Knights Templar for the General Grand Encampment of the United States, by the influential Masonic author and lecturer Jeremy Ladd Cross (1783-1860). The work follows on the success of Cross’s pioneering 1820 publication of Masonic emblems, THE TRUE MASONIC CHART, with a monitor for the specifically Christian “knighthood” orders associated with freemasonry in the U.S. Following ritual manuals, lessons, constitutions, and lists of officers for the orders is a large selection of songs, many with musical notation, and plates of symbols, ritual schematics, and Biblical and allegorical scenes, including Paul’s shipwreck on Malta. The frontispiece, a depiction of Constantine’s vision of the cross blazing in the heavens, is an early copper engraving of Simeon Smith Jocelyn (1799-1879) of New Haven. Jocelyn is evidently the illustrator of the all of the plates in the volume (taking the place of Amos Doolittle, who engraved the plates of the TRUE MASONIC CHART). Around the time of the TEMPLAR CHART’s publication, Jocelyn enrolled at Yale to train as a Congregationalist minister. Successfully ordained, in the 1830’s Jocelyn abandoned the engraving trade to dedicate himself to antislavery and African American educational causes.

THE RECENT ATTEMPT TO DEFEAT THE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS IN FAVOUR OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, CONSIDERED IN REFERENCE TO THE TRUST CONVEYANCES OF HANOVER STREET CHURCH. BY A LAYMAN

By [Lowell, John]

Boston: Wells and Lilly, 1823. First Edition. Softcover. Very good. 24 pp. Original plain green wrappers, stitched. Contemporary ink ownership signature of "G. Bond" on front wrapper. Wrappers lightly chipped at spine ends and corners, light soiling to front wrapper and extreme fore-edge, else near fine. An anti-Calvinist pamphlet from the Unitarian Controversy of 1805-1835, insisting upon "right of thought" and separation of church and state as fundamentally Christian principles. The author targets Massachusetts's "orthodox party" of Congregationalist clergy as heirs to Constantine and Rome in their abuses of Christianity and mental enslavement of their churches' laity. Sabin attributes the work to John Lowell, Jr. (1769-1840), the prominent Federalist Massachusetts lawyer, prolific pseudonymous pamphleteer, and author several years earlier of "Are You a Christian or a Calvinist?"

By Prescott, Harriet Elizabeth [i.e., Harriet Prescott Spofford]

Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1864. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 251 pp. plus 22,[1] pp. of publisher's advertisements. Original green cloth, stamped in blind and gilt. Minor wear and light welts from a lace or band on front board, light foxing in later leaves. Very good. The second novel and third book of Harriet Elizabeth Prescott Spofford (1835-1921), concerning an engagement between Azarian, an egocentric Greek doctor and aesthete working in Boston, and Ruth Yetton, an idealistic young orphan painter. Prescott was a Massachusetts-based American author of poetry and prose, known for her detective stories, Gothic romances, and defiantly exuberant style. Among her detractors was Henry James, who wrote in 1865, "'Azarian' is true to nothing. No one ever looked like Azarian, talked like him, nor, on the whole, acted like him; for although his specific deeds, as related in the volume before us, are few and far between, we find it difficult to believe that any one ever pursued a line of conduct so utterly meaningless as that which we are invited, or rather allowed, to attribute to him."

THE MASTER RACE MENTALITY "WE OR THEY"

By Anspacher, Louis K.

New York: Island Workshop Press, 1945. First Edition. Softcover. Near fine. 29 pp. Approx. 8 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Original printed wrappers. Light wear to wrappers, else near fine. A late-World War II anti-German, anti-Isolationist polemic by the American playwright and poet, Louis K. Anspacher, including several pages of his verse. Anspacher argues that the Pan-German mentality infects the minds of Germany as a whole, not merely the Nazi leadership, and that Anglo-American civilization must destroy it utterly lest it continue to re-emerge in history. He spares little: "The German soldier is still a serf. He accepts no moral or civic responsibility whatever. He would rather obey than think. He is trained to unconditional and unthinking, blind obedience. This Herrenvolk soldier is the most slavishly robotted animal in history. This is why the German soldier at command will take low advantage of armistice terms as he did in Paris on August 23rd, 1944. He will murder innocent civilians, shoot hostages, he will slaughter and strangle millions of Jews by mass-murder in his lethal vans and his Lublins, he will strip and whip the wives of hostages to death, as he did in the public square in Belgrade, he will rape the helpless women, bayonet the babies, he will commit blood-curdling and incredible atrocities; and he will do all these things with a cold and methodical ferocity that appalls the rest of civilized humanity. He will utilize pain, agony and torture systematically as military weapons. Even savages got beyond doing that. He will use his enemyís old men, women and children, as a front-line screen, behind which he advances and shoots at us; but we cannot shoot back without killing those whom we love. He will even utilize his own dead as booby-traps to kill our soldiers who try to give them decent burial. You will find all these things justified in their political philosophies and in the manuals of their military writers" (p. 11).
