Each of the five boo s was copied from rituals belonging to Giles F. Yates, 33°, a member of both the Northern and Souther n Supreme Councils, who had most, if not all, of the manuscript rituals of Mr. F rederic Dalcho, one of the founders of the first Supreme Council. At one poin t the original Dalcho manuscripts were lost or sold, and when the collection was rediscovered in 1938, it had several rituals missing. Our collection, however , is complete, from the 4°-33°. Most of the rituals are dated 1801 and 1802, which we believe indicates they are copies of the Dalcho versions, althou gh we have not had the opportunity to compare them with the originals in the arc hives of the Northern Jurisdiction. For some un nown reason, however, each is d esignated as belonging to either the 'first series" or 'second series," while so me rituals have apparently been switched around in numerical order. For example , one ritual is labeled the '30th, 31st and 32nd Degree of the First Series (180 2)...now 32nd, called Sovereign, or Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret;" althoug h it seems to have become the 32° only after a '31° Tribunal of Grand Inquiring Commander" ritual appeared (dated 1804). Another revision is the '29& #xB0; Grand Master Ecose...Knight of St. Andrew." Following the degree is the outline of an apparent 1806 revision which radically departs from the earlier fo rm, yet is similar to that found in Albert Pi e's Magnum Opus (1857). Did Pi e have this 1806 ritual? Possibly, yet, we now from Pi e's writings that he didn 't have all these rituals. Pi e's revisions were done without the benefit of re ading the original rituals contained in this set. One of the most interesting r ituals is the '33° Sovereign Grand Inspector General."
