Quakertown, PA: The Rosicucian Foundation - Beverly Hall, ND [1935 ]. First Edition. Hardcover. Quarto. 76pp. Original deep red cloth with gilt title and author to upper board, color frontis with tissue guard. A book published at the time of the establishment of the "Rosicrucian Foundation" in 1934/1935 by R. Swinburne Clymer, Supreme Grand Master of the Fraternitas Rosae Crucis (Fraternity of the Rosy Cross / FRC). The volume comprises an "Introduction" and "Preamble" by R. Swinburne Clymer, and two narratives: "The Meeting of the Council of Seven of the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross. The First World Parliament" and "The Fulfilment of the Prophecy, The Consecration of Washington the Deliverer. The Wissahikon." Both pieces are by writer, journalist, playwright, social activist, and (apparently) Rosicrucian George Lippard (1822 – 1854), the first having been extracted from his book "Paul Ardenheim, the Monk of Wissahikon" (1848) and the latter from his "The Legends of the American Revolution '1776': Or, Washington and His Generals" (1876). Clymer wrote that Lippard had reached a sufficient rank within the Rosicrucian order, that he was permitted to "incorporate the history of the Brotherhood and of the council in the Form of a Novel," resulting in these two works "in which were disclosed many facts concerning the activities of the Brotherhood."
