Excerpt from Hunting for Pictures: The Story of the Adventures of M. W. Bro. J. Ross Robertson, in Collecting Pictures for Masonic History

Hunting for the proverbial needle in an upto date haystack is child's play compared with a search for pictures with which to illustrate history - especially Masonic history.

Not that illustrations are necessary to hold down a reader's attention in any subject-but ordinary readers are so human - so very human. They want all the good things in sight. At a hotel they eagerly scan the bill of fare for the side dishes of the artist in cooking. If they open a book they seek just as eagerly in the chapters of letter press for the interleaved illustrations that are served up by the artist in half-tone. The entrees of th chef satisfy the physical, the half-tones of the picture-maker the mental taste. Besides, pictures fix in the memory much that might without them pass into oblivion.
