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."

Go for it if you think you should own it. It's still 'readable'. Difficult to digest, though!
Some of the insights into the rites and teachings of Freemasonry discussed here by Pike are enlightening to read and represent an acknowledge syncretisation of a wider array of thought and teachings from numerous sources. It is worth your time if you have ever wished to know more about the Mason's or as a primer to wider questions.
As a student of the occult sciences it is work that should be studied. Those of us interested in the Ancient Mysteries can take quite a lot from the study of this work. For the casual conspiracy theorist I strongly suggest you read it also for much nonsense pervades the internet. This book is often quoted and misquoted by people who have never read it in its entirety.
This particular copy is a good start, originals no doubt fetch high prices. I for one am grateful that there are people out there who make these classic works available to us in this age of ignorance. By that I mean that despite our society's technological advances and enlightenment on many levels, we have to some degree taken a retrograde step, a culture obsessed with celebrity and sport. These are the false gods of the unenlightened 'masses'. There is no excuse for ignorance in this age for never before has true knowledge been so accessible outside of the Mystery Schools.
