Rochester, N.Y. printed by Weed & Heron, 1828. First edition, 12mo, pp. vii, [1], 107, [1]; original drab paper wrappers; light foxing, a few of the later leaves dog-eared; very good. Much of the work is based on the handwritten manuscripts of William Morgan, "politely furnished by his widow, and ... in possession of the Committee," but these have been supplemented by other first-hand accounts. The Masons attempted to discredit Morgan's Illustrations of Masonry when it first appeared [in 1826], but "a group of men who had been Masons met to declare solemnly that it was a true revelation of Masonic practice" (DAB).
