Mann, James:

AN ORATION, ADDRESSED TO THE FRATERNITY OF FREE MASONS, IN THE PRESENCE OF A LARGE CONCOURSE OF PEOPLE, IN WRENTHAM, AT A PUBLIC INSTALLATION OF THE OFFICERS OF MONTGOMERY LODGE, WHICH USUALLY CONVENE AT FRANKLIN.

Nathaniel Heaton Jun., Wrentham: 1798 32pp. Disbound, scattered foxing, else Very Good. "One of the most notable surgeons of his day" [DAB], Mann became an army surgeon at age twenty during the Revolution and served in the War of 1812. He "visited Shays's camp during the rebellion of 1786-'7, in order to report to Gen. William Shepard" [Appleton]; and wrote the highly esteemed Medical Sketches of the Campaigns of 1812... [Howes M258]. Mann traces the 'Masonic Art' to its beginnings: "as soon as order began, and harmony was spoken into existence, by the Supreme Architect of the universe, the pillars of the masonic fabric were erected." Masonic history is discussed in a highly learned manner; much comment is provided upon Robison's work. FIRST EDITION. Evans 34043. Sabin 44328n.
