Cornerstone Book Publishers
In 1995, Michael R. Poll created Michael Poll Publishing as a Masonic reprint book publisher. Soon after, the publishing company evolved into a used book seller and provided a popular rare book search service. In 1997, Michael Poll Publishing launched its first website. The demand for quality used Masonic books grew and requests began coming for Masonic gift items and supplies.
In 1998, Lost Word was created to serve as both the on-line retail outlet for Michael Poll Publishing, and as a supplier of unique Masonic gift items. As one of the very first on-line Masonic supply stores, Lost Word quickly rose in popularity, but always remained a small family store.
Today, Michael Poll Publishing publishes mainly under its imprint, Cornerstone Book Publishers, and is active in the publishing of Masonic reprints (print versions as well as e-books) and the publishing of new Masonic and esoteric books as well as contemporary literature and pulp fiction.
While Cornerstone Book Publishers remain a small publisher, it continues to provide quality books to its readers. Our free search service is our hallmark and we are happy to search for any hard to find book.
Cornerstone Book Publishers is owned and operated by The New York Times Bestselling writer and publisher, Michael R. Poll, a Past Master in Etoile Polaire Lodge #1, Cervantes Lodge #5, Germania Lodge #46 (New Orleans, Louisiana) and Hiram-Takoma Lodge #10 (Washington, D.C.).
