‘History to take home’

Product endorsement is not the goal here, but since this involves St. John’s Lodge No. 1, Antient York Masons, in New York City, I thought it deserves mention. It is the new offer from Macoy Masonic Supply Co. of reproductions of the George Washington Inaugural Bible. These are smaller facsimiles of the same holy text upon which Bro. Washington placed his hand while taking the presidential oath of office for the first time on April 30, 1789. It is the altar Bible of St. John’s Lodge.

Read more about it here.

(I cannot vouch for some of the information quoted from [cough] Wikipedia at the bottom of this ad in the Macoy catalog.) These Bibles also are available at the lodge if you’re able to visit. A fine gift idea for the Mason who has everything. Just sayin’.
