This small book is a curious work by a past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Texas, detailing the esoteric symbolism and sacred geometry of Solomon's temple; it is subtitled, 'The Pillars of the Porch of King Solomon's Temple'. We present it here in its first and only edition, dated 1948. This copy has a presentation inscription by a fellow Freemason, S.G. Holden, to the front end paper, with publisher's label tipped in.
