Point Venus, McConnaughey, Susanne
11 McConnaughey, Susanne Point Venus
Little, Brown and Company 1951 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Inscribed and signed by author on front endpaper. Dust has chips at edges, but now covered in mylar cover. Tahiti, a hundred years before the tidal wave of L.S.T.s, is the setting for the story of Marianna, daughter of a rigidly strict missionary, and her coming of age. The French were trying to seize control and the British missionaries who preceded them were trying desperately to get help from home: Queen Pomare, shabbily treated by the French, was writing pathetic letters to her sister monarch, Victoria. The school on Marianna's beloved Point Venus was closed, and that, together with the death of her father and her necessary move to town, brings her out of her isolated, ivory tower life. She was able then to return the love of the educated, American beach comber, Jonas Burkham, and their liaison shut them out of the life of the town. But they help the natives in their hopeless fight, back in the hills, where their hardships temper their love into durability and Jonas turns again to writing when an injury stops his trading by schooner. Soft breezes for the dog days.(Kirkus Review); 8 X 5.60 X 1.20 inches; 312 pages; Signed by Author

Ministry of Angels, No Author Listed
14 No Author Listed Ministry of Angels
Greensboro, NC The Apostolic Messenger Office 1880 First Edition; Various Paperback Good with no dust jacket 
Grey cover with black lettering. Cover has been re-glued to contents. Paper is fragile due to age. Booklet now in archival sleeve to protect condition. Godbey’s contributions to holiness literature also included numerous small booklets which nourished the holiness people in sound doctrine and inoculated them against the ‘heresies’ which were sweeping across America in the late nineteenth century. These booklets were printed on cheap (high acid content) paper in order to make them affordable (usually ten cents each), and as a consequence, most of them exist today in a state of marked deterioration. Topics included expositions of holiness soteriology, critiques of “popular evangelism,” indictments of the “fallen churches” (especially Methodism), warnings against such ‘heresies’ as “Mormonism,” and devotional studies of the geography of “Bible lands.” However, the most prominent topic was the Second Coming of Christ. Godbey wrote numerous booklets concerning the “signs of the times,” expositions of dispensationalist chronology (outlining periods of history, the Rapture, the Tribulation Period, the Millennium, and the final judgment), and exhortations to be “robed and ready” with the experience of entire sanctification. These booklets contain an abundance of Godbey’s sermon illustrations–personal anecdotes, allusions to classical Greek mythology, references to rural life, and stories taken from religious biographies of such notable personalities as George Whitefield, John Wesley, Benjamin Abbott, and Charles G. Finney. These booklets provide today’s readers with snapshots of Godbey’s preaching style– homespun stories, rhetoric, pointed exhortations, allusions to classical literature–and provide a clear picture of a distinct personality. Like the rest of his publications, Godbey’s booklets were not polished productions; rather, they were transcriptions of his reminiscences, taken down by “amanuenses”–most of them students of God’s Bible School. Godbey had serious problems with his eyesight, and his handwriting was very difficult to decipher. He dictated his books and pamphlets from memory, and these publications represent a raw transcription of his personality and speaking style. Very rare. Paperback may indicate a booklet, phamplet, tract or book.
