I do not think that the book should be given back for two reasons.
1. If you found it then you are holding something that is very valuable and quite difficult to come by unless you're currently a Mason, or know
someone on the inside willing to break their rules. This is quite a good find and I would hold onto it.
2. For a society who has nothing to hide, then why not publish the books to the public? If the knowledge and truth in these books is so important,
then why withhold it from the general public? The very fact that Masons are quite quick try and recover their texts doesn't exactly show transparency
to the world.
I'm 50-50 on the issue of uploading it to ATS, but whatever you do OP, uploading it or not, just don't return the book. Not many people who are
outside the Mason community get a chance to have one, and it would make a great addition to any enthusiasts library.
