Ministry of Angels, No Author Listed
8 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.

Tidewater Virginia, Wilstach, Paul
12 Wilstach, Paul Tidewater Virginia
Indianapolis, IN Bobbs-Merrill Company 1929 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Brown cover gold print. Hinges a bit shaken. Yellowing to some pages from age. Former owners name written inside front cover. Also signed in the front is "Helen M. Bailey, American Embassy, Mexico City". Helen Miller Bailey, PhD, taught at East Los Angeles College for more than forty years. She used a series of travel films for instructional purposes in the classroom as well as in travel lectures for the general public. Bailey spent eleven summers in Mexico, Central America, and South America between 1933 and 1954, and wrote several books about Latin American history and society. The term tidewater may be correctly applied to all portions of any area, including Virginia, where the water level is affected by the tides (more specifically, where the water level rises when the tide comes in). In the case of Virginia, the Tidewater region includes the land east of the Fall Line, the natural border with the Piedmont Region. It includes Hampton Roads, the rest of the Virginia Peninsula, the Middle Peninsula, the Northern Neck, and the Eastern Shore. Planters in the early American colonies extended their tobacco productions above the Fall Line, where waterfalls or rapids mark the end of the Tidewater and the beginning of the foothill region known as the Piedmont. About the author: Wrote books about Washington's Mount Vernon, Jefferson's Monticello and the Potomac and Hudson Rivers. Served as a lieutenant commander in the US Navy during World War I. His father, John Augustine Wilstach (1824-1897), received critical acclaim for his translations of works by the Roman author Virgil and Dante's "Divine Comedy". ; Photographs, Black and White; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 326 pages; ; Signed by Notable Personage, Unrelated
