The Character, Claims And Practical Workings Of Freemasonry. (Used)
by Finney, Rev C. G.
Book ID: 20436, 20436
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.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
