About this Item

An upper-stapled publication in English measuring 8-3/4" by 10-3/4" and containing 8 pages including front and rear covers, with the inside pages printed in black ink from a hand-cranked mimeograph machine. The front cover contains a photograph of the headquarters, that at 1857 Anthony Avenue in New York City (as printed: Administration Building, 1857 Anthony Avenue, Corner Mt. Hope Place, Between 176th & 177th Streets, New York, N.Y.") and headlined "The Crusaders Academy of Science, Incorporated, Constituted for the promotion and development of the spiritual and mental faculties, Directed by the Masters of The Crusaders Order of the World. Inc." No date, although circa 1932, based on one issue listed on this site that ascertains the "future date" (day of the year) of "1932 Christmas" from an astrological table. Condition: front cover shows corner chips; covers age-toned and fragile. History (from the very scant information I was able to find on the internet): the 16-room mansion located at 1857 Anthony Avenue in the Mount Hope section of the Bronx, New York, and now claimed to be haunted, was known as the Shuttleworth Mansion, built in 1896 by Edwin Shuttleworth. Still standing, and certified as a City landmark, Gaetano Russo and his wife, Elvira, purchased the mansion in 1928. Their son-in-law, William Evers, who married the Russo's daughter, Gilda, purchased the house circa 1937 (one website indicates that he owned the property for 70 years and, at the age of 91, sold the mansion in 2007 for $675,000). When William Evers and his wife, Gilda, married, they lived five blocks away and it wasn't until 1962 that he moved into the house. The mansion served as headquarters for the Masonic Society's The Crusaders Order of the World. The Director General, Gaetano Russo - possibly a chiropractor and possibly part owner of a funeral home in Brooklyn - brought lamps and other fixtures from the Harlem Masonic Club to outfit the mansion in the 1930s. Edmond Grace Lyonheart served as Grand Master of the organization. The lessons issued from the Order were printed in either English or Italian. The individual issues, each listed separately, are exceptionally rare and possibly unique at this point in history. Bookseller Inventory # 007739
