Turning the Hiram Key

By Robert Lomas

Gloucester MA: Fair Winds Press, 2006. Near-Fine in illus wraps. Sl cornner wear. Nice copy! "The object of the book is to consider Freemasonry as a spiritual path, yet the author, although an English Mason, finds it necessary to abandon the politics and badges of rank (all chiefs, no Indians) of his mother system and move north to the older and purer realms of Scotland for inspiration. No Past Grand and Provincial Grand Officers strut their peacock aprons there, every member is a brother, even if an elected acting officer. His conclusion considers the future of Freemasonry, and it may be noted that Dr Lomas's daily work brings him into constant touch with thinking young people. Some of the grandees of Great Queen Street would do well to reflect on what he writes in this book."--author's website. Edition Unstated.. Soft Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
