In a great measure, this work explained and taught Freemasonry to Masons around the world. So popular was Preston’s Illustrations of Masonry (originally published in 1772) that the author saw it published in twelve editions during his lifetime, as well as being translated into several languages. This is one of the true Masonic bestselling classics. This photographic reproduction of the 1867 edition contains valuable additions by noted Masonic author George Oliver.

The Mystic Tie – Why do we hear so many stories of Freemasons helping, taking care of and supporting their fellow Masons even, at times, at the risk of their own personal safety? Simply promising to do so may account for once or twice, but there must be something more to explain so many acts of Masons risking it all to help other Masons. Albert Mackey presents us with a collection of amazing, inspiring and surprising stories of Masons acting to help other Masons and displaying that mystic tie that binds us all. Photographic reproduction of the 1867 edition.
