Abstract Preliminary designs for the first Mashriqu'l-Adhkár to be built in America, showing nine varying treatments in different styles of architecture; includes discussions of the Ashkhabad temple and Bahá'í history, and a 1908 letter to Star of West.
Notes This document is online in a variety of formats at Also available in Open Office format.

See also Remey's Illustrated description of a design in the Persian-Indian style of architecture for the first Mashrak-el-Azkar to be erected in America (1920).

While Remey later broke the covenant (see uhj_mason_remey_followers), at the time he wrote this book he was an influential figure in the Bahá'í community and was later appointed Hand of the Cause. This document is thus not "covenant-breaker" material.
