Does anybody have an e-book copy of Albert Pike's Esoterika? I cann't find the free copy anywhere and i know that there are many hidden gems in this book but i don't feel like paying 250 bucks on average for it.

Can't find a free copy of Esoterika, but there are a few of Pike's books available to download...

Thank you Ghislain. I don't know why his Esoterika is so tough to find considering all of his books are available for free.

Wow, a copy on abebooks went for over $1000.
Must be an important work.

Esoterica doesn't even get a mention in the Wikipedia article on Pike!

Esoterika is considered his third Magnum Opus, the other two being his first rewrite of the Scottish Rite rituals and, of course, Morals and Dogma. Pike never intended Esoterika to be published and only two manuscript volumes were produced, one of which rests in the archives of the Supreme Council and the other with the Quatuor Coronati Lodge 2076 in London. In 2005 the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite for the Southern Jurisdiction authorized the publication of Esoterika and it is now available not only to Scottish Rite Masons, but to all Masons.

His works were not intended to be distributed outside the masonic lodges but after the second world war the things have changed except for this book. There are even some blogs dedicated solely for this book but just try to go there and see what happens.

I am telling you guys this book is a hidden gem. I know this because i have in my possession Novo Clavis Esoterika written by Timothy Hogan which is like a supplementary on Pike's Esoterika.

Only 555 copies exist in the world but i have managed to get my hands on it.

I love to read comments on masonic forums about this book.

Maybe i should trade it for high level masonic secrets? :cool:
