My latest work Rediscovered Rituals of English Freemasonry is now out with Lewis Masonic. The book examines the high grade degrees found in Richard Carlile’s classic expose The Manual of Freemasonry, which has always been a work that I felt needed more attention. The book is divided up into two parts: part one presents a biography of Richard Carlile and looks at the influences for the Manual, and part two examines the degrees presented in the expose, some of which appear to have been practiced in England during the early nineteenth century.
This new work can be seen as a follow-on from The Lost Rites and Rituals of Freemasonry, and indeed, some of the high degrees discussed in the new book are also referred to in the previous book, especially with the Rite of Seven Degrees and in my discussion of the Francken Manuscript. The new book, available in hardback, comprises of over 50,000 words, around 40 images, nearly 400 footnotes, a detailed bibliography and index.
