The new book I am working on examines the Rite of Seven Degrees, a rite that existed in London during the latter part of the eighteenth century, and was led by a Frenchman and Freemason by the name of Pierre Lambert de Lintot. The book will construct the story of de Lintot, his career as an engraver and will reveal the translated ritual of the rite. It is due to be published by Lewis Masonic at the end of 2021, all being well.
This new book will form the final part of an ‘esoteric’ trilogy that started with The Lost Rites and Rituals of Freemasonry, published with Lewis Masonic in 2017, the second book being Rediscovered Rituals of English Freemasonry – a disguised Masonic biography of Richard Carlile and an examination of his high degrees displayed in his essential Manual of Freemasonry. Rediscovered Rituals was published by Lewis in May 2020. All three books work well together, weaving together a story of high degree work in England and indeed, the Continent, during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
The first book in this trilogy; Lost Rites and Rituals of Freemasonry, will also be going into its second edition soon, so a number of additions will be included, along with additional images and the index and bibliography will also be developed.
