About this Item

"The purpose of this work has been to present in a single volume the complete history of the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Ohio, although the greater part of the work deals with the period since 1904. The first chapter treats Prince Hall and the origins. The three succeeding chapters summarize the period from 1847 to 1906. Twelve chapters embrace the period since 1904. Illustrations are used throughout the volume. The following story is based largely on the Proceedings of the Grand Lodge. Whereever records have been obtainable, the founding of subordinate lodges, with their charter officers, has been indicated as far as could be obtained. The histories of separate lodges could not be included due to the interests of space, the lack of cooperation, and the growth of the grand Lodge and its work. The individual lodge histories are not included just as the histories of the individual states are not included in a volume of the history of the United States. The biographies of all great Prince Hall Masonsd are not included but many of them are. Such a series of biographies belongs to another work, for the story of the Grand Lodge transcends the personalities known to contemporaries as among the great. For with the passing of time, the great may actually become small in the judgement of posterity. The writing of contemporary history then is a difficult task, and it may be that we shall have to wait for the passing of time before we can judge persons abd events with wise judgement and clearer vision than at the present writing." This book has 494 pages and is illustrated throughout. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever, Overall, this is a VERY GOOD copy of this MOST SCARCE title. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
