Secret societies... Free Masons... Illuminati...



Item # 651430 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, February, 1798  The prominent feature of this issue would be the nearly 9 pages dedicated to the review of a new publication" "Proofs of Conspiracy against all the Religions and Governments of Europe, carried on in the Secret Meetings of Free Masons, Illuminati, and Reading Societies; collected from good authorities", by John Robison, Professor of Natural Philosophy, and Secretary to the Royal Society of Edinburgh."  The review mentions that Professor Robison had first hand knowledge of much of what he discusses.  The amount of detail describing the "plots" of the Free Masons, Illuminati, and others is astonishing.
It is difficult to obtain contemporary details of these events. This is the most detailed and lengthy report we have ever found.  The text includes mention of both William Wilberforce and Joseph Priestley.
Also within this issue is a 7 column essay:  "Essay on the Provincial Half-Pennies.  Essay II.- The History of the modern Provincial Half-pennies." with considerable details on its history.
Both full page plates called for are present.
Complete in 88 pages, 5 by 8 1/4 inches, full title/contents page with an engraving of St. John's Gate, very nice condition.
