What others have said about FREEMASONRY UNIVERSAL:
. . . even more popular and useful, bigger and better, that its predecessor. It is a significant contribution to Masonic knowledge, and I am proud to have been asked to contribute a few preliminary remarks. And so, my brethren, read it, learn from it, enjoy it, follow its adviceand take it with you.
Prof Wallace McLeod, in foreword.

I am down to one copy left, so lets try five more copies.
I received today my copy of FM Universal. I briefly read through it and I must congratulate both of you on a well researched and informative book. . . I will be informing all brethren here to purchase the book.

WOWjust received my copy of Volume I in the mail. Fantastic book . . . CANT WAIT to see Volume II
To claim that this book is invaluable to the traveller (whether actual or armchair) is an understatement, as it provides all information any visitor could desire (with the obvious exception of details of individual lodges) on each Grand Lodge and the particular customs of each jurisdiction. In smaller countries without their own Grand Lodges it has been possible to list all the lodges in the area.
Why guild the lily? This book is essential, it is authoritative, and it is excellent.
