A Collection of all the Most Important Documents on the Subject of Speculative Free Masonry. This is the single most important exposť of Freemasonry ever published on American soil. Long out of print and difficult to obtain, this book was a product of the "Morgan episode" and has since become one of the most sought after items by all students of Masonic ritual. Once dubbed "the Bible of the anti-Masons," it includes hundreds of pages of verbatim degree work copied from rare manuscripts which are unobtainable elsewhere. Henry W. Coil wrote in his Masonic Encyclopedia that this book gives the Scottish Rite rituals as they were worked before Albert Pike revised them, and indeed, some of its rituals are extremely similiar to those in the 1783 Francken Manuscript. Having studied both Pike's rituals and those included in this book, we believe that Pike used Light on Masonry to help in writing his "Magnum Opus" because the secret work in both books is too close to be mere coincidence.
