In regards to books covering the topic of Freemasonry, this may be one of the rarest and most sought-after editions.

This is the 1827 3rd edition of "Morgans Masonry". There is a very interesting backstory to this book.

William Morgan was rejected by his local lodge and, in retaliation, promised to write a book exposing all the secrets of the Masons. After publication of the book in 1827, Morgan disappeared. Three Masons were later found guilty of kidnapping.

What happened to Morgan afterwards has never been cleared up.

The book is still intact, but does have the signs normally associated with a book that's almost 200 years old.

As mentioned, this is a rare book, and there are few examples in circulation. But I was able to find one example that sold several years ago for approximately $500.
