Product Description

About the Author

About the Author:

"Albert Pike (December 29, 1809-April 2, 1891) was an attorney, soldier, writer, and Freemason. Pike is the only Confederate military officer or figure to be honored with a statue in Washington, D.C. The statue sits in Judiciary Square.

Pike was born in Boston, son of Ben and Sarah (Andrews) Pike, and spent his childhood in Byfield and Newburyport, Massachusetts. He attended school in Newburyport and Framingham until he was fifteen, at which point, having passed the Harvard entrance exam but unable to afford tuition, he began a program of self-education, later becoming a schoolteacher in Gloucester, Fairhaven and Newburyport.

In 1831 Pike left Massachusetts to travel west, first stopping in St. Louis and later moving on to Independence, Missouri. In Independence, he joined an expedition to Taos, New Mexico, hunting and trading. During the excursion his horse broke and ran, forcing Pike to walk the remaining 500 miles to Taos. After this he joined a trapping expedition to the Llano Estacado in New Mexico and Texas. Trapping was minimal, and after traveling about 1300 miles (650 on foot), he finally arrived at Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Settling in Arkansas in 1833, he taught school and wrote a series of articles for the Little Rock Arkansas Advocate under the pen name of "Casca." The articles were popular enough that he was asked to join the staff of the newspaper. Later, after marrying Mary Ann Hamilton, he purchased part of the newspaper with the dowry. By 1835 he was the Advocate's sole owner. Under Pike's administration the Advocate promoted the viewpoint of the Whig party in a politically volatile and divided Arkansas.

He then began to study law, and was admitted to the bar in 1837, selling the Advocate the same year. He was the first reporter for the Arkansas supreme court, and also wrote a book (published anonymously), titled The Arkansas Form Book, which was a guidebook for lawyers." (Quote from wikipedia.org) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

It is fraught with misspellings such as 'aecording' or 'moderll' and the pages are slightly turned, which is not as important as the misspellings. It teaches very little or at least little is what you get since loads of information passes you by because of such a pompous and flatulent writing style, also with unnecessary capital letters.
Go for it if you think you should own it. It's still 'readable'. Difficult to digest, though!

I have the original. It has 859 pages plus 218 pages Digest-Index. The change of year in copyright also says it has been rewritten and certain parts taken out. Beware of this publisher and other reprints with changed year of copyright, they have started rewriting the important books for us who studies.

General Albert Pike, 1809-1891. Was an American lawyer, author and soldier, he was also a Freemason.

After the American Civil War he devoted his life to advancing the cause of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in the Southern United States. From 1859 until his death he was Sovereign Grand Commander (33 degree) of the AASR Southern Jurisdiction, USA, during which time he re-worked the Scottish Rite degrees and he went on to write this book to explain it all to his members.

This book is mainly of interest because it is often misquoted by Internet based conspiracy theorists as the basis of their madcap theories about Freemasonry. It is a shame that few, if any, of them have actually read or even seen a copy of it. They also tend to be either unaware or unwilling to accept the fact that the majority of Freemasons outside (and inside )of the Southern Jurisdiction of the US have neither heard of Pike or that his influence was restricted purely to that part of America.

Although the devil and satan are mentioned, it is only in passing, you won't find the secrets of masonic: serpent, demon or obelisk worship in this book, as it doesn't exist. Around 80% per cent of the book is composed of history lessons about ancient civilisations (inc. Egypt, Greece, China, India, Persia and many, many more) and their superstitions and religious observances.

The main thrust of the book seems to be to compare these subjects as well as the "Ancient Mysteries" to the AASR as taught in the SJ in order to make it their inheritor. You do get the feeling that Pike was well read and knowledgeable on these subjects until you take the time to read the Preface.

Full of facts (which were acurate) and a damn good read. Nice one the history and places became alive with the use of the rites. I wish I had had this book on my tour of Scotland last year!

I read this, took the exam, passed first time and became a 33rd Degree Freemason! Result! Now I'm a high-ranking member of the Illuminati who gets the best seat next to the tea urn at the annual Bilderberg meetings right next to Prince Phillip and David Cameron. We're plotting to collapse the remaining economies of the world and usher in our Satanic One-World Government, One-World Religion (i.e. Luciferianism, of course) and One-World Currency in time for Christmas. So excited! Up until now I've only ever stacked the shelves at Lidl! Now I'm on the design team for the '666' mark of the beast which will be rolled out worldwide at the start of 2015. I'm finally on a decent wage too. Seriously, get yourself freemasoned up. The Illuminati will sort you out with a suit & tie and you can go to work being an evil despot bringing the human race to its knees and worshipping the devil. Just remember to give plenty of notice if you work at Lidl. I didn't and they docked me £56 for my last week.
