Description

Western Tract and Book Society, Cincinnati, 1869. [first edition]. Tall duodecimo, dark brown publ's cloth, decorative gilt lettering on spine and front cover, 272pp, a few tiny tears to spine but a bright fresh clean copy. Rare in nice condition. The famous attack on Masonry by Charles Grandison Finney, the eminent American revivalist. Finney's vehement attack was the beginning of the slow turn against Freemasonry among American evangelicals; until Finney, Masonry had comfortably coexisted in a symbiotic relationship with most Protestant denominations. Finney's modern spiritual descendants have inherited his hostility to Masonry; there is still a thriving cottage industry of often lurid anti-Masonic evangelical tracts and books which shows no signs of slowing down, even though Masonry has vastly declined in numbers. This book of Finney's is their model even now. A very important document in the history of Masonry and especially the history of its decline in modern America. He was president of Oberlin College and his grandson is the Sci-fi author of the Circus of Dr. Lao, made famous by the Tony Randall's 1964 film of the same title.
