"General Albert Pike was Grand Commander of the Supreme Council 33o, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Southern Jurisdiction of the U.S.A. from 1859 until the time of his death in 1891, at the age of 82 years. During those thirty-two years he wrote and compiled many books and among them translations from the Sanskrit, which language he mastered late in life.

The original manuscript of his Lectures of the Arya in eight volumes, written with quill pens fashioned by himself, is a prized possession of the Supreme Council.

As a tribute to his memory and to add to the world's store of knowledge, the Supreme Council ordered that one edition of this manuscript be printed.

This cloth edition of Albert Pike's Lectures of the Arya is limited to seven hundred copies and they are numbered from 1 to 700 exclusive.

It is not probable that another edition will ever be published."
