Editorial reviews

At the time that this Free Masonry tell-all was published in 1826, it became a best seller, a status that can probably be attributed to the mysterious disappearance of its author, William Morgan, who was rumored to have been murdered at the hands of the Masons he had exposed. Sensationalism, it seems, has always sold books. Listeners with an interest in ritual and liturgy will be fascinated by Morgan's step-by-step descriptions of Masonic ceremonies. Ken Maxon is the convivial voice that brings life to this procedural material. On a contemporary note, the historic Mysteries of Free Masonry reminds listeners of the current anti-Scientology literature being published by dissatisfied practitioners.

Publisher's summary

After being denied admission to a Masonic lodge in Batavia, William Morgan secured a sizable advance from a local newspaper publisher for this work. That publisher, David Cade Miller, released this book after Morgan's death, presumably at the hands of the Masons. Because of the notoriety of the previous events, The Mysteries of Free Masonry Containing All the Degrees of the Order Conferred in a Master's Lodge became an instant best seller and an American classic.
