A very good copy of this scarce publication. **"The Matthew Cooke Manuscript is the oldest of a class of about one hundred early documents known as Freemasonry's Gothic Constitutions, and the second oldest known manuscript in Masonic history... Unlike the majority of the old constitutions, which are written on rolls, the Cooke manuscript is written on sheets of vellum, four and three-eighth inches high and three and three eighth inches broad (112mm x 86mm) bound into a book, still retaining its original oak covers. The manuscript was published by R. Spencer, London, in 1861 when it was edited by Mr. Matthew Cooke — hence the name. In the British Museum's catalogue it is listed as "Additional M.S. 23,198", and is now dated to 1450 or thereabouts, although errors in Cooke's transcription caused it originally to be dated to after 1482. In line 140, And in policronico a cronycle p'yned, Cooke translated the last word as "printed", causing Hughan to give the earliest date as Caxton's Polychronicon of 1482. Later retranslation as "proved" justified the earlier dating. Obvious scribal errors indicate that the document is a copy, and repetition of part of the stories of Euclid and Athelstan seems to indicate two sources. Speth postulated, in 1890, that these sources were much older than the manuscript, a view that remained unchallenged for over a century. Recent analysis of the Middle English of the document date it to the same period as the writing, around 1450, implying that the source or sources from which it was copied were almost contemporary with the Cooke, and contemporary with, or only slightly later than the Regius poem. It was probably composed in the West Midlands, near to the origin of the Regius in Shropshire. The historian Andrew Prescott sees both the Regius and Cooke manuscripts as part of the struggle of mediaeval masons to determine their own pay, particularly after the statute of 1425 banning assemblies of masons. Masons sought to show that their assemblies had royal approval, and added the detail that the King's son had become a mason himself. At line 603 we find For of specculatyfe he was a master and he lovyd well masonry and masons. And he bicome a mason hym selfe. James Anderson had access to the Cooke manuscript when he produced his 1723 Constitutions. He quotes the final sixty lines in a footnote to his description of the York assembly. The Woodford manuscript, which is a copy of the Cooke, has a note explaining that it was made in 1728 by the Grand Secretary of the Premier Grand Lodge of England, William Reid, for William Cowper, Clerk of the Parliaments, who had also been Grand Secretary." - See Wikipedia . *** "...The most notable figure associated with freemasonry in Canonbury was matthew Cooke (d. 1883), the masonic scholar who first published rhe early fifteenth-century manuscript of the Old Charges, British Library, Additional MS. 23198, known as the Cooke Manuscript. Cooke was a musician, the son of Matthew Cooke the elder (1761-1829), who was organist of St. George's Bloomsbury and, briefly, the Curzon Chapel, Mayfair. Like his father, Matthew Cooke the younger was a boy chorister in the Chapel Royal and became an organist, acting as Honourary Music Master to the Royal Masonic school for Girls. He was initiated as a mason in the Canonbury Lodge, at Canonbury Tavern on 18 June 1857, an occasion recalled at a festive board following a meeting of the lodge in 1861. Edward Cox, as Master proposing the health of the visitors including Cooke, noted how 'Bro. Cooke had been initiated in that room [in the Canonbury Tavern] and on the W.M.'s proposition... His titles were numerous, and the W.M. must fail if he attempted to recapitulate them; indeed he believed that Bro. Cooke had gone up so many degrees that it wanted but very few more to take him direct th the Grand Lodge above.' In response, Cooke said that 'Like all young children he cam occasionally to the mother for a little pap..." - See Dr. Andrew Prescott - A Canonbury Tale (The Freemasons' Magazine, New series, 5 (Jul-Dec. 1861), pp.412-3). **** "Henry Josiah Whymper 1845-1893.

In Freemasonry, the broken column denotes the untimely death of Grand Master Hiram Abiff. The beautiful Virgin, weeping, denotes the unfinished Temple. The open book before her displays that his virtues are on perpetual record. The sprig of acacia in her right hand represents the timely discovery of his body. The urn in her left, that his ashes were safely deposited to perpetuate the remembrance of so distinguished a character. Father Time standing behind her, unfolding the ringlets of her hair, denotes that time, patience, and perseverance will accomplish all things." - See Mendocino, California ** Jeremy L.

" Although a ‘Freemasons Magazine’ was published from 1793 to 1798, the continuous history of masonic periodicals in Britain does not begin until with the establishment of the Freemasons’ Quarterly Review by Robert Crucefix in 1834. His avowed intention included the hope that it might constitute ‘an archive where the events most interesting to Brethren may be recorded and regular biographies given of such worthy Masons who, by their zeal and industry’ have advanced the interests of their art’. In practice however he had an additional agenda, to promote his scheme for an Asylum for Aged and Decayed Freemasons and give himself an opportunity for attacks upon those, including the Grand Master, opposed to the scheme. This magazine included articles about Freemasonry, a section of ‘Masonic Intelligence’ which included reports on the proceedings of Grand Lodge’ and reports of lodge meetings held in London, the Provinces, and abroad. Crucifex died in 1850, but his magazine continued albeit going through a number of changes of title until its transformation in 1853 into ‘The Freemasons quarterly magazine’. In 1855 it changed from a quarterly publication to a monthly, now becoming ‘The freemasons’ monthly magazine’. - Masonic periodicals online. *** "Dr Robert Thomas Crucefix. Burlington Lodge where he was initiated on 16 April 1829, became Master in 1833. He was Treasurer for a decade from 1839 and, simultaneously served as Secretary for 5 years in 1844. He joined Lodge after Lodge, (he was Master of Lodge of Concord in 1834, the year after he stepped down as Master of Burlington). Exalted into the Royal Arch (Naval & Military Royal Arch Chapter) in Edinburgh a year after his initiation, he joined and progressed through the Chair of several chapters. He was soon involved in all the other Orders, so far as they were available in England, Scotland and/or Ireland. The Knights Templar, Rose Croix and Ne Plus Ultra (1831), the Knight Templar Priest (1832), Ark Mariner (1833) Mark (1839). He was also involved in Freemasonry in France and USA. In between his Lodge, Chapter and encampment activities, he dedicated himself to what was his love in freemasonry: charitable work. Dr. Crucefix urged Grand Lodge to be more active 0n social issues, proposing resolutions against slavery and campaigning for a home for elderly impoverished freemasons. This brought him into conflict with the Duke of Sussex as Grand Master…" - excerpt from Dr Robert Crucefix - A Man And A Mason To Be Proud Of By Yasha Beresiner 2012.
