Título: The Amaranth; Or, Masonic Garland. Volume 1:...
Editorial: Boston: Charles W. Moore & Edwin Sevey, April, 1828-October, 1829
Año de publicación: 1829
Edición: First Edition.
A volume comprising a complete run of this important journal, which historian Robert Reid identifies as "the first exclusively Masonic periodical. " Published in the wake of the Morgan affair (reports of which percolate throughout these pages), THE AMARANTH offered "an unfailing source of supply" for freemasons of the day--and for later editors, who cribbed material from it for decades. The editor, Charles Moore, was a writer of no mean accomplishment. He was the founder and editor of THE MASONIC MIRROR, which Albert Mackey identifies as "the first Masonic newspaper ever issued in America, and, perhaps, in the world, " and THE FREEMASON'S MONTHLY MAGAZINE, which he published from 1841 until his death in 1873. The journal contains reportage on many events of interest to the Masonic historian. The frontispiece to the volume is a woodcut of the New York Masonic Hall, the subject of the first article in the first issue. With the contemporary ownership signature of one G. Day. The binding is sound, and the spine intact, but the leather corners are decayed, and the marbling to the covers is worn to peeling at the edges, There are signs of mildewing to the initial pages, some of which are stuck together. Not the most attractive copy, admittedly, but worthy of restoration. At any rate, a complete run of a very rare periodical. N° de ref. de la librería 12415
