1. Franklin, the apostle of modern times, Boston : Little, Brown and Co., 1929. 547 pp. The Bulletin of the Grand Lodge of Iowa noted: "This volume cannot be trusted, because in a section of one of its chapters, one devoted to Franklin as a Freemason, almost every statement of fact is questionable." In New Republic R. M. Lovett described the book as "dilute and mediocre", also questioning some of the allegedly documented statements of fact, wondering if they were not really speculation "which might well be spared."
A later book, Revolution and Freemasonry, 1680-1800 (1935) demonstrated a similar disregard for masonic historical facts. In New York Herald Tribune Books, in reviewing Revolution and Freemasonry, H. S. Commager commented that "M. Faÿ ... will have his little joke. . . . as fascinating a piece of historical sophistry as has appeared in many a year." Still another book, Louis XVL or The End of a World, failed to convince any of its reviewers of its revisionist thesis; as C. A. Gilozzo pointed out in Best Seller, knowledge of the "major historians of the French Revolution" was "sorely lacking."
