Riassunto: Masonic education is on on-going process that comes in many packages. There are a handful of Masonic classics from the 1800's that should be in the library of every serious Masonic student. Macoy's "General History and Cyclopedia of Freemasonry" is one of those classics. This work provides the Masonic student with a foundation upon which to continue his education in Freemasonry. The work is divided into a history section followed by an encyclopedic examination of the various terms, bodies, degrees and customs of Freemasonry. This is a photographic reproduction of the 1870 work. Illustrated.
L'autore: Robert Macoy (October 4, 1815 ? January 9, 1895 was born in Armagh, Ulster Ireland, but moved to the United States at the age of 4 months. He was a prominent Freemason, and was in-strumental in the founding of the Order of the Eastern Star and the Order of the Amaranth. He also founded what may be the largest Masonic publishing, regalia, and supply house currently active. Growing up in America and having attained a considerable de-gree of education, Macoy entered the printing craft as soon as he was old enough to work. He spent most of his life in that business and in Masonic activities in New York City. In 1849, he started a Masonic supply and publishing business, which, under the name, Macoy Publishing & Masonic Supply Company, is still in active operation. Macoy was initiated in Lebanon Lodge No. 191 in New York City, January 20, 1848, passed, January 27, and Raised February 3 of that year. On August 15, 1855, he withdrew to affiliate with Adelphic Lodge No. 348. He was elected Deputy Grand Master of New York in June, 1856 and reelected in 1857. He was exalted in Orient Chapter No. 138, Royal Arch Masons, September 5, 1849 and became a member of Adelphic Chapter No. 150 on December 24, 1855. He was also affiliated with Union Chapter No. 180, Americas Chapter No. 215, and De Witt Clinton Chap-ter No. 142. He also received the Cryptic degrees and was a charter member of Adelphic Council No. 7, Royal and Select Masters. He was elected Grand Recorder of the Grand Council on June 4, 1855. He was also knighted in Palestine Encampment No. 18 of New York City, in February, 1851, and in March withdrew to join Morton Encampment No. 4. On April 28, 1874, he affiliated with DeWitt Clinton Commandery No. 27 Knights Templar, where his membership continued for 20 years. He received the Scottish Rite degrees sometime prior to December 9, 1850, for on that date he received the 33rd Degree, Sovereign Grand Inspector General. In 1866 Macoy published A Dictionary of Freemasonry, which comprised his own work (?General History of Freemasonry? and ?Cyclopaedia of Freemasonry?) as well as George Oliver's Dictionary of Symbolical Masonry of 1853.
