THE ROUND TOWERS OF IRELAND; OR THE MYSTERIES OF FREEMASONRY, OF SABAISM, AND OF BUDDHISM. (Used)
by O'Brien, Henry
Book ID: 20680, 20680
Whittaker, London, 1834. "THE ROUND TOWERS OF IRELAND; OR THE MYSTERIES OF FREEMASONRY, OF SABAISM, AND OF BUDDHISM. For the First Time Unveiled. "Prize Essay" of the Royal Irish Academy, Enlarged, and Embellished with Numerous Illustrations." XXXVI+524pp, plus one page of errors and emissions, illustrated with b & w woodcuts, some of which are full-page The binding is a professionally done work with handsome pairing of two colors of gray and re-sewn saving the inner margins very nicely. Partly obscured on the title page is the contemporary signature of one W. H. Reece. The text is clearly printed and the woodcuts are choice, all printed on rag paper. In the preface the author describes his lifelong study of Freemasonry, of it's beauties, and of his struggle to "bequeath the light of the night" to the English reader through a study of the round towers of Ireland. The author's aim is vague in places, pleasantly so as he is not convinced of his thesis, that the towers were built by Buddhist priests who traveled in the 8th century to Ireland and the west. He postulates a few other theories, all of course "crack-pot," but interesting to the imaginative historian. Reprinted in 1898. title page slightly chipped and neatly repaired in the margin, lacks half-title, very good to fine condition later dark gray cloth with light gray printed paper spine label, new ep's.
