Rich in world history and political power, veiled in secrecy, and rife with rituals and arcane symbols -- from art and architecture to the images that adorn our currency -- the Freemasons arose from ambiguous origins centuries ago to play a major role in drafting the initial documents of the United States, and even in constructing the intricate landscape of Washington, D.C., itself a virtual mystery by design.

And to what secretive end do they all lead?

This is an excellent aid in description & picture to Dan Brown's bestseller "The Lost Symbol". It covers the Smithsonian Museum Support Center, the George Washington Masonic Memorial, the Washington Monument & help to define "Kryptos". Authors also "help" finding "The Lost Symbol" in Washington, D.C., by going through : (1) The House of the Temple, (2) The Capitol 54 & (3) The Library of Congress. Dan Brown may be releasing his illustrated edition of "The Lost Symbol" on 10 November 2010, but I'm confident that I have an excellent peep (preview) on this guide edited John Weber! It gives you a sound background & understanding of Dan Brown's masterpiece "The Lost Symbol".

If you were as interested in the details of The Lost Symbol as I was, then this is a great buy. Obviously, there is only so much detail Brown can put into his book without it getting too long. So if you were intrigued by the history and connections mentioned in the story, you could just look it up in An Illustrated Guide. The only thing I would have liked to see more of was the paintings. There were not as many pictures as I had expected in an Illustrated guide. But it was still worth the money and really helped to enhance The Lost Symbol.

Great book. Very speculative.
Warianys
The book is very short on helpful photographs and diagrams. There are many articles which do not hold Freemasonry in a good light. This is definitely not a companion book to Dan Brown's work.

This guide is greatly helpful, and I'm so glad I ordered it along with the book, THE LOST SYMBOL!
