2 19TH CENTURY MASONIC ENGRAVING - A LURAT and EDWARD G HESTER (Engravers) . The Installation Of H.R.H. The Prince Of Wales K.G. As Most Worshipful Grand Master Of The United Grand Lodge Of Ancient Free And Accepted Masons Of England 28th April 1875
London: Printed and Published by McQueens, by Bro E J Harty, 213 Regent Street, Jan 1st 1878 . 0 
Very Rare Engraving Of Masonic Interest (94cm x 61cm / 38" x 24") : "The Installation Of H.R.H. The Prince Of Wales K.G. As Most Worshipful Grand Master Of The United Grand Lodge Of Ancient Free And Accepted Masons Of England 28th April 1875". Followed by: " This Engraving Is Dedicated By Special Permission To His Royal Highness By Bro. Edward James Harty PM 1201." It is Engraved by A. Lurat and Edward G. Hester, Printed by McQueens, and Published Jan 1st 1878 By Bro. E. J. Harty, 213 Regent Street. The engraving has been professionally re-framed (118cm x 86cm / 46" x 34") using archival standard materials, preserving the original brass presentation plaque (attached to the rear of the frame): "Presented to The Mitcham Masonic Lodge No 2384 By The Family Of The Late W. Bro J. M. Leather PM." The engraving has a few light brown spots, but is otherwise in very good condition. This installation ceremony was the largest congregation of Freemasons everheld. ** E. J. Harty was master of Eclectic Lodge 1201 in 1877. *** "Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, was initiated as a freemason in Stockholm by the King of Sweden in 1868. On the resignation in 1874 of the Marquess of Ripon as Grand Master following his conversion to Roman Catholicism, the Prince of Wales became Grand Master, serving until his accession to the throne. The Prince’s initiation encouraged some of his brothers to follow suit. Arthur, Duke of Connaught, was initiated by the Prince of Wales in 1874 while he was master of the Prince of Wales’s Lodge No. 259, and Leopold, Duke of Albany, became freemason in the same year in the Apollo University Lodge No. 357 at Oxford....The election of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) as Grand Master in 1874 gave great impetus to Freemasonry. The Prince was a great supporter of and publicist for Freemasonry. He regularly appeared in public, both at home and on his tours abroad, as Grand Master laying the foundation stones of public buildings, bridges, dockyards and churches with Masonic ceremonial. His presence ensured publicity and reports of Masonic meetings at all levels appeared regularly in the national and local press. Freemasonry was constantly in the public eye and Freemasons were known in their local communities. From 637 in 1814 the Grand Lodge had grown to 2,850 lodges when the Prince resigned the Grand Mastership on becoming King in 1901..." - ugle: The History of the Grand Lodge

Born on 12 March 1804, he was son of Adam Neale and Margaret Young, and brother of William Johnson Neale. He was educated at Westminster School 1815–16, and at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. 1828, and M.A. 1832. On 24 June 1828 Neale became lecturer of St. Hilda's Church, Jarrow, county Durham. He was appointed vicar of Adlingfleet, Yorkshire, on 19 October 1835, rector of Kirton, Suffolk, in 1844, and vicar of Exning with Lanwade, Suffolk, in 1854. Neale collected autographs. His knowledge of handwriting led to his being subpśnaed on the part of the crown at the trial of Ryves v. the Attorney-General in June 1866, when it was sought without success to establish the claim of Olivia Serres, the mother of Lavinia Ryves, to be the Princess Olive of Cumberland. He died at Exning vicarage on 23 November 1883, after an incumbency of 29 years." - See Wikipedia .

Ashe was born in Limerick in 1766, entered Trinity College, Dublin, 26 March 1783, took B.A. degree in ordinary course, and became D.D. in 1808. Very little is known of him except that he commenced and perfected his masonic studies in Dublin. While in Bristol in 1813 he published a work entitled 'The Masonic Manual, or Lectures on Freemasonry, containing the Instructions, Documents, and Discipline of the Masonic Economy,' and asserts in the introduction that he 'plainly and completely tells the craft its eternal and temporal obligations, and affords the uninitiated a fair review and estimate of masonry.' This work was dedicated to the Duke of Sussex, then grand master of the order. In many portions it is a mere copy of William Hutchinson's 'Spirit of Masonry,' published in 1775." - See Wikipedia *** "Ashe, D.D., Rev. Jonathan.

As also how to prepare the universal medicine. Most humbly dedicated to the Grand Master, Masters, Wardens and Brethren of the most ancient and most honorable fraternity of the Freemasons of Great Britain and Ireland. By Eugenius Philalethes, F.R.S." *** Robert Samber (1682-1745) was an English freemason, author and prolific translator. Samber went to the English College Rome in 1705, but left there a year later to enter upon a very chequered life as hack writer, renegade Freemason, renegade Catholic and pornographer. He exploited his masonic connections in order to make money by first courting the favour of his wealthier brethren and by later ridiculing them. He made use of his Catholic background and education in a variety of ways; his translation of Roma Illustrata testifies to his knowledge of Rome and of Catholic art; his adaptation of Drexel to his knowledge of Catholic devotional writings and its attraction among English non-Catholics; and his translation of Venus in the Cloister to his shrewd eye for the contemporary interest in smutty stories about the secrets of the convent. He wrote under his pen name Eugenius Philalethes, Jun. [the original Eugenius Philalethes was the pseudonym of alchemist Thomas Vaughan (1622-1666)]. In his dedicatory preface to his translation of the 1715 book Long Livers, by Frenchman De Longeville Harcouet, published in England in 1722. Samber wrote the preface under his pseudonym Eugenius Philalethes, Jun. His wording indicates his knowledge of hermetic teachings, and were a part of Masonic instruction of the time."
