Mason, Freemason, Masonic books at Browsers Uncommon Books

Mason, Freemason, Masonic books at Browsers Uncommon Books,

Updated: According to one seller on eBay this copy would be a second edition 
rather than a first edition. as the masonic date is 5641 rather than 5632. 
To quote the eBay seller, goldenegg178: "The confusion seems to arise in that the 1881 editions' copyright page fails to list 1881 as an added year of publication, and thus only says 1871 on it...but if you look at an 1881 edition's masonic year as stated on the title page - that will now say "5641"    (no longer the "5632" of the original first edition!!!). So if you think you have the first edition - BUT the title page says a masonic calender year of 5641 - you actually have the later 1881 edition. But don't be too disappointed as even the 1881 edition of MORALS AND DOGMA by Albert Pike is considered a very early and very scarce edition!" goldenegg178  
Morals and Dogma Second Edition. Apparently actually printed in 1881 rather than the 1871 stated on the copyright page.
