A key figure in applying modern approaches to the study and writing of West Virginia history, Charles Henry Ambler (August 12, 1876-August 31, 1957) was born in New Matamoras, Ohio. He grew up in St. Marys, West Virginia, and from 1894 to 1900 he taught school in Pleasants County. After completing his doctorate in 1908, Ambler taught history and political science at Randolph-Macon College in Virginia until 1917. For the next 30 years he was a member of the WVU history department, and from 1929 to 1946 he served as chairman. Among his enduring legacies was the creation of the West Virginia and Regional History Collection in the university library. ; Author Signed; Maps; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 365 pages; Signed by Author

The Masonic History Company 1929 Revised Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Two volume set. Blue grey leather cover with gold lettering.Very clean contents some pages and end papers browning due to age. Former ownersname in front. Freemasonry is a fraternal organisation that traces its origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons, which from the end of the fourteenth century regulated the qualifications of masons and their interaction with authorities and clients. The degrees of freemasonry, its gradal system, retain the three grades of medieval craft guilds, those of Apprentice, journeyman or fellow (now called Fellowcraft), and Master Mason. These are the degrees offered by craft, or blue lodge Freemasonry. There are additional degrees, which vary with locality and jurisdiction, and are now administered by different bodies than the craft degrees.The basic, local organisational unit of Freemasonry is the lodge. The lodges are usually supervised and governed at the regional level (usually coterminous with either a state, province, or national border) by a Grand Lodge or Grand Orient. There is no international, world-wide Grand Lodge that supervises all of Freemasonry. Each Grand Lodge is independent, and they do not necessarily recognise each other as being legitimate.; Freemasonry; Vol. 1 & 2; Photos and illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall
