THE BOOK OF THE MASTER(1898) or the Egyptian Doctrine of the Light Born of the Virgin Mother. 

"...a comparison of the secret passages and chambers contained in the Great Pyramid, or "Secret House," of Memphis, to which the Egyptians of old gave the title of the "Light," with the secret passages and chambers portrayed in the sacred papyrus describing the "Entrance on Light," which we at the present day call the Book of the Dead but which the Egyptian priests entitled The Book of the Master of the Secret House." xx + 204pp + 33 illustrations.

THE HOUSE OF THE HIDDEN PLACES  The purpose of this work is to show that a very intimate correspondence exists between the passage-chambers of the Great Pyramid, and the various stages, upward and downward, traversed, according to the Egyptian Ritual, by the holy dead in passing from the light of earth to the light of eternal day. The Pyramid thus has, as the prime object of its erection, the symbolising of the cardinal features of the old national religion.  xiv + 249pp.
