MASONRY OF ADOPTION. - LES QUATRE GRADES VERITABLES ET UNIFORMES DE L'ORDRE DE L'ADOPTION, ou Maçonnerie des dames/ By F. Nerard Herono. S.l.n.n., 1779. Small in-8, brown-beige half-chagrin with corners, spine with cloisonné and fleuronné nerves, edged slipcase (modern binding). 91-(5 white) pp; spine a little faded. Tuileur of the first three grades, and a fourth (Parfaite or Chosen), accompanied by a table ritual. New edition of the work Les Quatre grades complets de l'Ordre de l'Adoption ou la Maçonnerie des dames", published in 1772 without author's name, but here with some variations in form, and without the songs. The anagrammed pseudonym "Nerard Herono" is probably a misnomer for "Nerad Herono", which is found in other works, and so, rather than "Honoré Renard", should read "ANDRE HONORE", author of masonic texts and plays. RARE, absent from Fesch. Provenance: Paris bookseller Lucien Bodin (bookplate); Alain Van Raemdonck (bookplate).
