1 Avary, Myrta Lockett (Edited, with a Biographical Study by) Recollections of Alexander H. Stephens (His Diary When Kept A Prisoner At Fort Warren, Boston Harbour, 1865)
New York Doubleday Page & Co. 1910 First Edition Cloth 
Very Good in full red cloth. Both the spine and the front board are gilt-stamped (all of which is still brilliant). 572pps., with tissue-guarded frontispiece of the subject. No dustjacket. Touches of wear to the tips and the spine-ends; the head of the spine does have a 1/4" tear in the cloth. Light foxing around the area of the endpapers; all other pages are, however, quite clean and bright. The binding is square and tight. To give the provenance of this book: it is from the library of the esteemed William Emerson Ambler. His bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown and his synopsis of the volume is attached to the ffep. Quite an interesting and scarce volume, in nice condition. This book is part of a renowned collection put together by Judge William Emerson Ambler of Cleveland, Ohio in the early part of the last century, adding to the collection his father, Chester Ambler had begun in the mid 1800ís. Ambler died in 1925 and these wonderful items have been kept by his family all this time. As a lawyer Judge Ambler's work was done chiefly in the State of Michigan, where he became prominent in public affairs, serving as state senator and as judge of probate. He moved to Cleveland in 1891 and became one of the leading real estate men. He was born in Medina, Ohio, December 18, 1845, as son of Chester C. and Margaret (Elgin) Ambler. In 1859 the family moved to Hillsdale, Michigan. He attended Hillsdale College, graduated Bachelor of Science from Albion College in 1865, and pursued his law studies in the Albany Law School at New York, where he was a classmate of President William McKinley. Pentwater, Michigan was his home for over twenty years ( the family home is now a bed and breakfast ); his work and attainments gained him a high estimation in the public. He was elected a member of the State Senate in 1878 and again in 1880. Judge Ambler's hobby was the collecting of autographs and autographic letters and manuscripts; he had one of the largest collections of the kind in the country.
