As my latest book is launched, I though I would do a brief post about my last book The York Grand Lodge. The book was published in June last year, and examines the rise and fall of the Grand Lodge of All England held at York, an independent Masonic body that existed from the early 1700s through to opening of the 19th century. It's a story full of intrigue, Jacobites and independent Masonry, the 'Yorkists' having a five degree system by the 1770s. The book is available through Lewis Masonic.

The new book Freemasonry and Fraternal Societies is now available through Lewis Masonic, Amazon and other book outlets. The book examines how fraternal societies such as the Oddfellows, Druids, Foresters, Rechabites, Horsemen and Ancient Shepherds were influenced by Freemasonry, and gives a history of each Order, discussing the fate of the friendly societies in the wake of government tampering and social change.

My next book will be examining the York Grand Lodge and will be published by Arima in September 2014. It has been a fascinating research project, and the book will offer a new examination of this unique independent form of English Freemasonry. More posts to follow.

My new book A Quick Guide to Freemasonry is now available; the. idea of the book was to have an easy to understand question and answer book for new Masons, a book which covers everything Masonic. A number of question and answers from the book will be appearing in the UK based Masonic Magazing The Square.
