PÉRAU (Gabriel-Louis-Calabre). Le Secret des Francs-Maçons. S.l.n.n., 1744. Small in-12, brown marbled calf, cloisonné and fleuronné spine with garnet-red title-piece, cold fillet framing the boards, filleted edges, red edges (period binding). (2 of which the second is blank)-xi-(one blank)-125-(one blank)-23-(one blank) pp. A book that falls into the category of disclosure works, but without incriminating aims, written by a polygrapher who was a Sorbonne prior (though not tonsured). From 1745, reprints would appear under the title L'Ordre des Francs-Maçons trahi et le secret des Mopses révélé. The 1742 princeps edition, published in Geneva, is so rare that its existence has been questioned. 4 woodcut vignettes: the first on the title depicts an apron, the second at the signature of the dedicatory epistle depicts a square and compass, and the other two are ornamental bands with Masonic motifs.
