Lewis Masonic Publisher Launches US Website

Lewis Masonic has a proud history of publishing books for Freemasons in Britain for decades, and they have a massive catalogue of titles. Unfortunately, US Freemasons rarely find out about them. Virtually no Masonic magazines in the US accept advertising (The Journal of the Masonic Society and the Knight Templar Magazine are about the only two), they have no distribution in US bookstores, and their presence on Amazon.com can be spotty. As easy as it is to order online, their UK website was off-putting to Americans who scratched their heads figuring the exchange rate and balking at shipping charges.

Brother Martin Faulks at Lewis is now spreading the word of the opening of Lewis Masonic's U.S. website at: www.lewismasonic.us

At long last, the company's extensive list is available with US prices, and shipping from a US distributor. Some of their more popular authors include Yasha Beresiner, Harry Carr, Stephen Dafoe, Robert Lomas, Reverend Neville Barker Cryer, Tobias Churton, and many more.

The Scottish Rite Journal has run ads for years.

I don't think they do. I see only ads for the Supreme Council's store.

Au contraire, mon frère.

Affinity marketing of Radnor, Pa., usually runs an ad on one of the inside covers; they had ads on both inside covers of the Nov/Dec 08 issue, which also carried an ad for the Christmas ornament from the GW Masonic Memorial. Alexandria-Washington Lodge No. 22 purchased an ad in Mar/Apr 08 to encourage out-of-town visitors to attend one of their special lectures.

The Journal does not aggressively seek ads, but we do run them when they come in and are approved.

You must be a Dummy or something! :-)
