Arithmetic of Freemasonry by F. de P. Castells

Originally published in 1914 for the Leeds association of Installed Masters, F. de P. Castells' Arithmetic of Freemasonry is a unique little gem among the annals of Masonic Research. Taking the numbers used in Freemasonry, Castells traces a path that includes the Kabballah, Pythagorean thought and other ancient disciplines.

The author began his research trying to understand the Hebrew names for the G.A.O.T.U.

This book is a reproduction of the original book enhanced with a number of illustrations to accompany and clarify the text.

The Untrodden Paths of Masonic Research by Gilbert W. Daynes

The "Untrodden Paths of Masonic Research," by Gilbert W. Daynes was originally published in 1924 and provides the Student of Masonic Research many questions, upon which to begin an investigation into the history of the Masonic Fraternity.

Examining such subjects as the origin of Freemasonry, Medieval Masonry and Freemasonry in the 17th Century, Danes asks more questions than he answers and, in the process, is sure to inspire the Freemason curious about such subject matters.

Also included in this book are two other works by Gilbert W. Daynes: "Know Thyself" and "Freemasonry and Social England in the 18th Century."

Everything I Needed To Know About Freemasonry by Stephen Dafoe

There are many lessons of vast importance contained in the Entered Apprentice Degree of Freemasonry. These lessons are so important to the author of this book that he has been so bold as to title the book, Everything I needed to know about Freemasonry; I learned as an apprentice.

Worshipful Brother Stephen Dafoe is not a Freemason who takes his craft lightly. He is often fond of saying, "We do not need more men in Masonry, but more Masonry in men." Every page of this book reflects that expression. The book is one man's reflection on the lessons learned in that first degree and is a thorough examination of the philosophy taught with each step, pace and gesture. In so doing, Dafoe has not created a dry account of the first degree, but rather a book that will inspire all Freemasons to get back to the basics.

During the course of Dafoe's recapitulation of his own experiences as an Entered Apprentice, he has created a lively story that unwraps many of the mysteries of the first degree and examines even the most basic of lessons under new thought and new light in Masonry. From the symbolic and esoteric meanings of the mosaic pavement to a thorough explanation and examination of the Junior Warden's Tracing Board, Everything I Needed To Know About Freemasonry is a book you will read again and again.

The Story of Freemasonry by William G. Sibley

Originally published in 1904, The Story of Freemasonry by W.G. Sibley is one of those classic sources of Masonic history that should be in every Mason and history buff's library.

Unlike treatments of Masonic history by the likes of Mackey, Waite and Gould, Sibley covers the subject in an easy to digest and conversational manner that leaves the reader wanting more.

Sibley looks at such topics as the legend of Hiram, the attempts to exterminate Freemasonry, the mystery of the William Morgan affair to name a few. However, it is his explanation of the origin and structure of the Scottish and York Rites and their relationship to Craft Masonry that is perhaps worth the price of the book alone.

The Knights Templars: A Factual History by Various Authors

Much has been written in recent years concerning the rise and fall of the noble order of knighthood know to history as The Knights Templar. Many of the modern works have been of a speculative nature and occasionally so close to works of fiction as to blur the borders. What is needed and often requested by modern day adherents of Templarism is a book that will provide a brief overview of historical fact devoid of the many theories and suppositions that seem to be the providence of these more recent works.

The Templar Orders In Freemasonry by Arthur Edward Waite

The Templar orders in freemasonry by Arthur Edward Waite, long out of print, is a must read for those members of Masonic Templarism interested in how Masonic Templarism began.

Waite in his typical insightful prose style examines the legends of post Templar existence via such notable figures as Andrew Michael Ramsay and Baron Karl Von Hund, who were the first to draw a connection between Crusader era orders and the Masonic Brotherhood.
