I7ve always wanted to read this book...it contains a treasure trove about the esoteric meanings of the higher Freemasonry degrees. Plus it touches on
all sorts of points very germane to the western mystical/hermetic/gnostic traditions in general. I bet one could learn a lot from it.
But fer the love of meg the danged thing is almost 800 pages long, and much of the diction is 1800s-ish. There will be long, repeteitive passages and
wearisome slogging through lots of infor I already know -- that A'S the 19thc entury way of reiting after all. The book itself is not exactly a
weekend beach read, if you know what I wean...if I'm going to crack open the musty old leather copy of this that has been lying on my library shelf
and sternly reprocing me for lack of deserved attention at the very least requires serious committment of brain wattage and time. So is it worth it in
your opinion, or kust a roundabout way of telling us all we already know? Anyone read it cover-to-cover or made a serious trudy of it? Recommend it?
