Apparently an anti-Masonic tract with an acknowledgment by the author that it is a more narrowly focused attack than the famous contemporary book by John Robison: "Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe. . . ". The book is bound, or rather not bound, as though delivered to a purchaser for binding by the purchaser's binder.

Donated by Gallagher Books, Denver, CA.
