    I want information on Masonic history. What books would be good introductions?

    Hodapp, Chris _Freemasons for Dummies_ Recently published, this is a
    clearly- and well-written reference for Masons and non-Masons alike.

    Virtually anything by Allen Roberts.

    Robinson, John J. _A Pilgrim's Path_
    Robinson, John J. _Born in Blood_

    Stevenson, David, PhD. _The Origins of Freemasonry: Scotland's Century
    1590-1710_ (Cambridge, New York: Cambridge University Press, 1988).

    _Coil's Masonic Encyclopedia_ is an excellent reference.
