    Royal Arch Masons: 1872 By-Laws, Silver City, Idaho Territory. 3.75" x 5.75", twenty-one pages, printed wraps. This remarkable little booklet contains the by-laws for the Cyrus Chapter No. 2, of Royal Arch Masons, which was chartered on September 20, 1871 in Silver City, Owyhee County, Idaho Territory. The chapter's initiation fees very much reflect the fact that they were situated in valuable gold and silver fields as "Every petition for the Degree shall be accompanied with fifty dollars". Typical initiation fees in non-mining areas would have been considerably less, one assumes. The booklet is in remarkable condition with only some light soiling to the cover and a few scattered ink stains on a couple of internal pages.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
