From the Introduction: "The great Masonic and Christian serial - The Man of Mt. Mariah occupies a field entirely its own. When did Masonry originate? The Man of Mt Moriah is no less a person than Grand Master Hiram Abif, who was Grand Architect at the building of King Solomon's Temple. The story is arranged in three parts, dealing, respectively, with the time of the Temple and the life of the Temple Builder, with events in the time of the Messiah - The Lord Jesus Christ - and in them, successively, we see Masonry founded, witness the fidelity and devotion of those who gave it love and protection, and find a present promise for all the future." Originally published in 1893, this "Improved Edition" has been revised, introduced and indexed by the publisher, John W. Brown.
