‘Brethren read this book, liked it, and passed the word along; and so it has journeyed from land to land, weaving a web of goodwill.’

[1] The Builder Magazine was published from 1915 through 1930 by the National Masonic Research Society. Many Masonic Librarians and scholars believe that The Builder Magazine was the best American Masonic magazine ever published. The fifteen year collection include thousands of excellent articles on Masonic history, philosophy, jurisprudence, poetry, landmarks and symbolism. These publications and the Quatuor Coronati's Transactions are invaluable sources of knowledge.
