Product Information

Originally published in 1869, authored by John W. Simons, a Past Grand Master of New York, Principles & Practice of Masonic Jurisprudence is a must read on the topic of Masonic Jurisprudence.

From the Preface: "The lamentable want of knowledge, in regard to the simplest principles of Masonic Law, which prevails even among otherwise intelligent brethren, can only be fully known to those who, like the writer, have held official station in the Craft, and been called upon to answer the multitudinous questions that arise in the practice of lodges. A dozen different interrogatories are frequently propounded in relation to the same subject, all of which might be readily answered, were the questions in possession of the fundamental principle on which it is based. To supply this principle, and to simplify its application, has been the object in view in our work; and to it we have brought the experience of a long and active participation in every branch of our institution, with an extended intercourse with Craftsmen from every portion of our own country and Europe."
