BAIN, GEORGE WASHINGTON / [SAMBER, ROBERT (PSEUDONYM: EUGENIUS PHILALETHES, JUN.] .
The Preface to Long Livers: A Curious History, &c. : A facsimile of a Copy in the Possession of Bro. George Washington Bain, P.M., Z., P.Prov. G. Reg., Durham, and Published for Him by Lodge 'Quatuor Coronati', No.2076, London .
London: Quatuor Coronati Lodge No. 2076, 1892 . 0. "200 Copies only of this Reprint issued." A clean copy in a very good original half calf binding. 10.75" x 7.50" x 0.50". pp.17/pp.54. Black calf spine and corners over marbled boards, gilt title to spine. Inkstamp and number for "Quatuor Coronati Lodge" to front free endpaper. Clean text throughout, with a 17 page introduction by R. F. Gould and a facsimile of the original edition published: London: J. Holland, 1722. Written in Old English text from an original manuscript. "Long Livers: A curious history of such persons of both sexes who have lived several ages and grown young again with the rare secret of rejuvenescency of Arnoldus de Villa Nova and a great many approved and invaluable rules to prolong life. As also how to prepare the universal medicine. Most humbly dedicated to the Grand Master, Masters, Wardens and Brethren of the most ancient and most honorable fraternity of the Freemasons of Great Britain and Ireland. By Eugenius Philalethes, F.R.S." *** Robert Samber (1682-1745) was an English freemason, author and prolific translator. Samber went to the English College Rome in 1705, but left there a year later to enter upon a very chequered life as hack writer, renegade Freemason, renegade Catholic and pornographer. He exploited his masonic connections in order to make money by first courting the favour of his wealthier brethren and by later ridiculing them. He made use of his Catholic background and education in a variety of ways; his translation of Roma Illustrata testifies to his knowledge of Rome and of Catholic art; his adaptation of Drexel to his knowledge of Catholic devotional writings and its attraction among English non-Catholics; and his translation of Venus in the Cloister to his shrewd eye for the contemporary interest in smutty stories about the secrets of the convent. He wrote under his pen name Eugenius Philalethes, Jun. [the original Eugenius Philalethes was the pseudonym of alchemist Thomas Vaughan (1622-1666)]. In his dedicatory preface to his translation of the 1715 book Long Livers, by Frenchman De Longeville Harcouet, published in England in 1722. Samber wrote the preface under his pseudonym Eugenius Philalethes, Jun. His wording indicates his knowledge of hermetic teachings, and were a part of Masonic instruction of the time.".
