Hello I am looking to add a masonic section to my bookshelves (right on top of my renaissance section
and would love some recommendations. About to go on an amazon spree.

Also found a website that sells "planche" but only in french. Is there a trusted website you guys know of where I could buy some in english.

Cordially

Do you mean J.R. Planché the author of Beauty and the Beast?

About websites to get books, maybe Barnes and Noble, eBay, Thriftbooks, Alibris, I would have said Hastings but they just went out of business I think...

There are a lot of smaller retailers and I'd even suggest just shopping around town in person to find some random gems.

I'd expect Amazon to be one of the better outlets however with the largest selections.

The BEST place to find such books that are not of the norm to many and ones you wont find in regular bookstores is
ABE BOOKS

I LOVE this book site. Just type in what you're looking for and if you know authors that helps but you don't need to. I would love to have some of the old occult books but I don't have thousands to own them. You can find anything on there. GREAT place for the strange and unusual

You could have a look on the ,Geek, app they have many masonic/history items.

Only a suggestion.

When I looked up Planche it translates to "board"
Is that the title? Do you have an author or anything?

I know where you can get Mackenzie The Royal Masonic Cyclopaedia if you want but you would have to send me a private message.

Contact various lodges by e-mail and ask. This is the best way. Even some of them had on their sites e-editions for free download. Even a google search might lead you to somebody's already compiled list of masonic books. Go with something like "Masonic Library" or so, and if the site is speaking in obscure not understandable language, then you found your place.



I forgot, the books should also be obscure and rather hard to read, otherwise you're not getting the right ones...

But lets say I know one thing that will be advised to you by any living mason: www.amazon.com...

Every Masonic Library needs Albert Mackey's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FREEMASONRY

Sahabi,

Why is there mentions of Mackey to the third person? : "Brother Mackey could not agree to the reason assigned by Dalcho, but of the existence of..."

Because in an academic writing, it is more proper to refer to oneself in the third-person by name, rather than by the pronouns "I" or "me".
