Skiing is one of the oldest modes of transportation known, predating the wheel with dated artifacts to prove its pedigree. Skiing for sport, however, did not become common until about 150 years ago. The first Winter Olympic Games, held in Chamonix, France in 1924, were the first to introduce skiing as a competition. Events were held in both ski jumping and cross-country skiing. With advances in technology and increased leisure time, the popularity of skiing as a sport has risen exponentially since it was first introduced.
The Historical Dictionary of Skiing relates the history of the sport through a comprehensive alphabetical dictionary with detailed, cross-referenced entries on key figures, places, competitions, and governing bodies within the sport. Author E. John B. Allen introduces the reader to the history of skiing through a detailed chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes and an extensive bibliography. This book is an excellent access point for researchers, students, and anyone interested in the history of skiing.

Freemasonry was a major cultural and social phenomenon and a key element of the Enlightenment. It was to have an international influence across the globe. This primary resource collection charts a key period in the development of organized Freemasonry culminating in the formation of a single United Grand Lodge of England.
The secrecy that has surrounded Freemasonry has made it difficult to access information and documents about the organization and its adherents in the past. This collection is the result of extensive archival research and transcription and highlights the most significant themes associated with Freemasonry.
The documents are drawn from masonic collections, private archives and libraries worldwide. The majority of these texts have never before been republished. Documents include rituals (some written in code), funeral services, sermons, songs, certificates, an engraved list of lodges, letters, pamphlets, theatrical prologues and epilogues, and articles from newspapers and periodicals.
This collection will enable researchers to identify many key masons for the first time. It will be of interest to students of Freemasonry, the Enlightenment and researchers in eighteenth-century studies.

🔆Etiquette in Society, In Business, In Politics, and at Home by Emily Post

The original guide to good manners explains why “nothing is less important than which fork you use.”
Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.
A popular phenomenon when it was first published in 1922, Emily Post’s Etiquette quickly established her as the undisputed authority on considerate behavior. Her books, syndicated column, and radio program soon made the phrase “according to Emily Post” part of the American lexicon. Though updated editions have appeared over the years, the original text is both a fascinating window into American high society at the dawn of the Roaring Twenties and a timeless testament to the value of social grace.
Covering a broad range of topics, Etiquette includes chapters on “Tea and Other Afternoon Parties,” “Balls and Dances,” “Etiquette in Business and Politics,” and “Travelling at Home and Abroad.” This edition also includes an introduction by editor Richard Duffy as well as photographic illustrations throughout.
