This is a scarce signed edition of Robinson's breakthrough expose of Freemasonry's secret history. The book traces the society's origins from the 14th century Peasants' Revolt to the Knights Templar to the present. Though Robinson was not a Mason when he wrote this book, he did become a Mason in his final years. Though written by an outsider, this book has been curiously embraced as an unofficial history by the Freemasons. Robinson's signature is quite uncommon. Very good / very good. Item #1019
