GENERAL RULES OF SCOTTISH MASONRY. S.l.n.d.... - Lot 107 - Pescheteau-Badin
GENERAL RULES OF SCOTTISH MASONRY. S.l.n.d. In-8, half ivory vellum, small gilt iron with Masonic emblems on first cover (19th century binding). (2 of which the second is blank)-96 pp. printed on azure paper; 2 handwritten dates on title, "5784" [i.e. 1784], and "March 3, 1804"; handwritten label on title leaf. Published in the late 18th or early 19th century. Attributed to Antoine-Firmin Abraham in collaboration with other brothers, these regulations were disapproved by the French Supreme Council in a circular dated September 14, 1812. They were enacted by the Mère Loge Écossaise de France in Paris in 1776, here according to a manuscript then held in the archives of La Parfaite Union Lodge in Douai, signed by its former Venerable Philippe Bommart, who had attained the rank of Sublime Master of the Luminous Ring in the Scottish Philosophical Rite. The date 1784 on the last page is that of the Lodge's foundation. Thory lists an edition of 1784 in Douai, and another of 1805 in Paris with Porthmann. Dorbon mentions an edition of 1805, and one of 1812 by Nouzou. Fesch and Wolfstieg omit this work. Provenance: Bibliothèque du Frère L. Bontems (bookplate, name scratched off).
