Intr oduct torn


The publication of this work was, we might say, forced upon us
by the demand, before even a page of manuscript was prepared for
the press. The demand was caused by members of the Temple,
who recognized the necessity of a printed text book, from which
they could study the meanings of the cards and their indications
under the seven planets.
These brothers and sisters naturally wished to perfect themselves in emblem reading as rapidly as possible, and they could not
so perfect themselves, without a full and complete set of tables that
tney could study and refer to at will. The next trouble that arose
was the question of expense, as, aside from the printing, engraving, binding, electrotyping and matters of that kind, the author's
time was, and is now so valuable that the item far overbalances
those mentioned.
It was finally decided that the most feasible plan, was to get
out enough copies to supply more than our immediate membership
and to sell them to outsiders under certain restrictions.
We only intended, at first, to get out a book of about one hundred and sixty pages to be bound in cloth. But the generous
subscriptions forwarded to us caused us to change our mind and
we began writing additional copy. We are so occupied with
Temple work, that this extra labor, together with superintending
the publication and proof reading, has caused considerable delay
beyond the time first set. We are sorry for this, but it could not
well be avoided.
Please remember, friends, that the price charged for this book is
not f07' the size, nor the binding, nor the number of pages, but for
the matter itself. The emblem delineation department is alone
worth more than the price charged for the entire work. We have
placed much other information in the book in addition to the
tables of readings, in order to compensate our kind friends for
the patient waiting and the numerous subscriptions they have
procured for us.
We certainly undertook the work at a time when the conditions
were extremely unfavorable. We have been overrun with work
in the Grand Temple, and down town shops engaged in the lines
connected with book making are all full of World's Fair work.
At last we have overcome the obstacles and here is the book
v/hich we hope will please you.
Respectfully and fraternally yours,

THE AUTHOR.

GENERAL LAWS GOVERNIKG MYSTIC EMBLEMS.


Every division of time, used by men, has

its

particular

ruling card.

Thus, in addition to year cards and day cards, there are

hour cards, minute cards, and even second cards, ruling in


various orders, co-ordinating with the time elements.
