After moving to London, his editorship of the Freemason ignit an interest in the study of Masonic history, and led to the establishment of Quatuor Coronati Lodge, dedicated to maso research. Woodford was the first Immediate Past Master of th lodge, and as such convened the lodge for much of its first tw years, during the frequent absences of Charles Warren, the [2] master. Just before his death, towards the end of 1887, he passed on a set of coded papers which resulted in the establishment of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

Robert Macoy Leader of Eastern Star 1866-1876 A4 Glossy copy of his signed Carte de Visite

Robert Macoy was born in Ireland, October 4, 1816, but from the he was four years old lived in New York City, where, at an early ag apprenticed himself in the printing and publishing business, continued in it for nearly forty years, first as printer and bookselle then as a Masonic publisher. During his generation he made a place for himself in the American Craft, along with Ma McClenachan, Drummond, Morris, etc., with whom he was c associated He won a success in four separate spheres of Masonic la

1. In the Order of the Eastern Star. Rob Morris had conc the idea of it, had written rituals, had filled it wit inspiration, but was a failure at the work of organization. Upon his departure for the Holy Land, in 1868, Brother transferred to Brother Macoy all the authority he had ass and exercised in regard to the Order. Bro. Macoy immed set about arranging the work more systematically.... Und guiding hand the Supreme Grand Chapter. a self-const body, was organized in December, 1868. . ."

2. In the work of Grand Bodies of Masonry. He held the office of Deputy Grand Master of New York, and was Recorder of the Grant Commandery, E. T.

3. As author. He wrote an unknown number of articles f Masonic press; wrote much in a number of Monitors Manuals- and was author of The Worshipful Masters' Ass which for half a century was to the office of Master Mackey's Encyclopedia was to the whole of the Craft.

4. As a publisher. He published (and oftentimes either edi helped to write) a long list of Masonic books, among them Master Workmen, 1849- The Masonic Manual 1852; The of the Lodge, 1855, a work of immense national infl which American Masonic historians have overlookedManual, 1853- Masonic Minstrel, 1857; Worshipful M Assistant, 1885; Rise of Adoption, 1868, and in 1890- an General History, Cyclopedia, and Dictionary of Freema which is described under ENCYCLOPEDIA, Mackey's elsewhere in this Supplement.

During the productive period of Bro. Macoy's published and writin one demand everywhere was for Monitors and Hand-books, and M was but one of a number who supplied them, from Webb to Mac detailed, exhaustive bibliography of Macoy by an expert would op a path for historians into one of the most important fields of American Masonic history or American Masonic Jurisprudence~ Lodges (and other Grand Bodies) now prepare and publish thei Monitors. In the period, of almost three-quarters of a century, w

was left to private members to prepare and publish Monitors not of them (as was inevitable, and it is not to their discredit) insin into Craft practice more than one element of the Exoteric work represented nobody's idea but their own, and in some instances mistaken idea. Certain of the small discrepancies, anom inconsistencies which Grand Lodges find in the Monitorial sectio their Uniform Work, and sometimes in Lodge practice, could be t back to a private Monitorialist.

Section 2
It has been suggested that we should include more Masonic items in our listing in addition to the extensive Book section. The collecting of Masonic items has grown in popularity since the Sale of the Michael White collection 20 years ago. Nowadays with the introduction of the Internet there is more interest and also more competition. There is also a great amount which has no real interest to the serious collector. As a first stage we have arranged for a limited run to made available of facsimile copies of the Bonhams Sale Catalogue of The Michael White Collection of Masonic Art and Memorabilia which was auctioned by Eric Knowles on 30th August 1991. Now available 20 per copy including P+P in UK

This section will probably grow slowly as we intend to keep it selective.

Most Ancient and Honourable Society of Bucks

Most Ancient and Honourable Society of Bucks Jewel of the Most Ancient and Honourable Society of Bucks, which flourished between the 1770s and the 1820s. An account of the society published in 1770, evidently by a member, includes a long mock-scholarly description of how the society was founded by Nimrod, the mighty hunter of the Old Testament, and modelled on Nimrods government of the empire of the Assyrians. Extensive regulations are given on the appointing of officers, founding new lodges, and subscriptions for the benevolent fund. Moral exhortations follow, in favour of virtue and brotherly love and against drunkenness and

taking the Lords name in vain. The author makes the (presumably) tongue-in-cheek claim that The greatest monarchs in all ages, as well Asia and Africa as of Europe, have been encouragers of our noble order, and many of them have presided as grands over the Bucks in their respective dominions. However, after all this solemn and virtuous discourse the book ends with a selection of hunting and drinking songs and in fact the Bucks were noted at the time for rowdy and drunken behaviour. Their members must have all have been fairly well-off as their surviving jewels are of very high quality, with fine enamel and paste work.

In the Official History and Literature of Odd Fellowship The Three Link Fraternity. By Henry Leonard Stillson Published in 1897 by Fraternity Publishing Company 896 Pages It is claimed that The Odd-fellows may have derived from the Noble Order of Bucks
