MASONIC BOOKPLATES

MASONIC BOOK-PLATES
Masonic Book-Plates are of course primarily interesting to members of the Craft who can understand the
various signs and symbols appearing upon them. Yet
these plates are interesting to Book-Plate collectors in
being among the rarest of Ex Libris specialties. Two
collectors have written on the subject Robert Day in
his "Masonic Book-Plates", (London, 1904), and A. W.

Pope with "Remarks on some Masonic Book-Plates in


America and their Owners", (Boston, Part I, 1908; Part
II, 191 1 ). Yet combining the lists of plates in these two
brochures and adding to them the plates in my own collection I can here list but a few over one hundred and
seventy Masonic Ex Libris.
Before taking up the different emblems found on Mait might be well to explain that the
through the various stages of Freemasonry
by a series of steps called degrees which the member may
take in sequence as his interest leads him to enter into the
work of the Craft. The highest degree is the 33d which
Tois conferred as an honor upon prominent Masons.
gether with and accompanying these steps or degrees,
which may be called the main road of Masonry, are
various side paths or divisional bodies such as the Shrine,
the Knights Templar and others.
There are in some cases special symbols to denote these
bodies; other emblems aie used for Masonry in general.
To begin with the most common mark is the general
Masonic symbol of the square and compasses between
which there is often placed a G. Then there is the keystone bearing a lettered circle, and the all-seeing eye
sometimes placed in a triangle. Various geometric fig-

sonic Book-Plates

ures are used, for instance the triangle, the circle, the

cube or perfect ashlar, the five-pointed star or pentalpha,
(See P-I, plate of L. M. Taylor) and the six pointed star
formed of two triangles as in the Ruddiman plate. At
times a plate will have some of the architectural marks
of a lodge room, such as the altar or the two columns with
their spheres one for the earth and the other for the
heavens.
very interesting example of an altar with the
beam of light falling on it from above is seen in the old
plate of W. Chapman.

Among the special emblems for the subsidiary Masonic


bodies are the cross and crown (See plate of Dr. Egbert) ;
the scimitar, crescent and star, the mark of the Shrine;
the Maltese cross of the Knights Templar; and the
crowned double eagle of the Scottish Rite bodies. It is
for these emblems that the Book-Plate collector must look.
Some

found to be almost entirely MaRylands has all sorts of emblems


and symbols the layman might almost get a liberal education in such matters by a study of this plate. Another
of the same kind is that of the Supreme Council 33d by
W. P. Barrett. This is perhaps the most elaborate Masonic Book-Plate in existence and seems to contain all
the insignia of the Scottish Rite. Other interesting plates,
on account of the wealth of symbolism or mysterious
signs which they contain, are those of L. M. Taylor, A
E. Bachert, E. V. D. Brown, and L. A. Onley.
There are few foreign plates in the list. Freemasonry,
except in France, does not seem to be very strong on the
Continent. Moreover, the Continental bodies are not very
closely affiliated with those of England and America.
Several very interesting plates appear, however, even two
from Bohemia. Furthermore I understand that M. Henri
Andre is now at work on a volume to be entitled "Maconnique Ex Libris". Judging by M. Andre's "Ex Libris
de Medecins" the promised volume should be both interesting and valuable.
Like most Ex Libris, Masonic plates often lead the

certainly interesting, even if his Book-Plate is not, and


gives us an instructive side light on the sort of life led by
the Middle Westerner during the early years of the last

century.

In this connection it is interesting to read part of an


unpublished diary of John Rowe who was Grand Master
of the Grand Lodge of America from 1768 to 1787.*

"5 October, Wednesday (1768) After Dinner a Committee from the Grand Lodge, Bro. Richard Gridley, Bro.
Jenkins and Bro. John Cutler they Presented Mee the

This and other data used here are taken from notes made on the

Lodge, his patriotic feelings made him the leader of the


seceders from St. Andrews who united in forming the
Rising States Lodge, taking its charter from the Massachusetts body. Of this new lodge he was Master 1784
and 1791, and Treasurer 1785.
He was also junior
Warden of the Royal Arch Lodge, out of which grew St.
Andrews Royal Arch Chapter."

Some light in regard to the feeling at times held


towards Freemasonry may be seen in the career of Silas
Ketchum. Born in Barre Vt., in 1835, he married in
i860 and worked his way through the Bangor Theological
Seminary by means of his trade of shoemaker at which
he had been apprenticed before his marriage. After graduating he became pastor of a church in Wardsboro, Vt.,
where he remained for two years. In the library of the
Grand Lodge of New Hampshire is a farewell sermon
delivered at Wardsboro on Sept. 24, 1865. On the inside
"In Sept. 1865
of the cover of this Mr. Ketchum wrote
I was raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason, in
Mt. Lebanon Lodge, Jamaica, Vermont. For this crime I
was dismissed from the church in Wardsboro, of which
I had been pastor two years, and took my leave with the
following sermon. Silas Ketchum." Mr. Ketchum later
helped to edit two Vermont newspapers and the next year
was called to a church in Bristol, N. H. During the later
years of his life he was much interested in early New
England matters and was a member of many historical

some Book-Plate collectors into trying to gather a
few Masonic Ex Libris for a special collection. The
list which follows is of course not at all complete, and I

bring them to my attention.
