9 Rice, John H Memoir of James Brainerd Taylor
New York Published by John P. Haven 1834 First Edition; Various Hardcover Poor with no dust jacket 
1834 printing and NOT a reprint. Foxing. Tape on bottom portion of spine. Cover has heavy wear. James Brainerd Taylor was born in the shipbuilding town of Middle Haddam, Connecticut, on April 15, 1801. He is a maternal collateral descendant (cousin, four times removed) of famed American missionary David Brainerd (1718–1747) and a paternal collateral descendant of the famed Church of England clergyman-author Jeremy Taylor (1613–1667). The fourth of eleven children, he and his siblings were all raised in the town's Protestant Episcopal Church, Christ Church (est. 1785). His role in the spiritual revival at Yale and the surrounding area, and his receiving of a license to preach as an evangelist from the Middlesex Consociation of the Congregational Church on October 8, 1828, in East Haddam, Connecticut, are two highlights of Taylor's brief two years as a student in New Haven. Taylor died just seventeen days shy of his twenty-eighth birthday. With the bottom of his epitaph reading, "Reader, his epitaph is what he would have yours to be, A sinner saved by grace," the remains of J. B. Taylor are today at the Hampden-Sydney College Church Cemetery.; 330 pages

Sword of the Lord 1951 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Poor dust jacket Signed by Author
Red cover with gold lettering. Inscribed and signed "In Jesus name, John R. Rice, Ps 126:6, Luke 11:13.". Rare signed copy very clean contents. Dust is in poor condition, but now in mylar cover. John R. Rice was born in Cooke County, Texas in 1895, the son of William H. and Sallie Elizabeth La Prade Rice, and the oldest of three brothers. Will Rice was a small businessman, a lay preacher, and a one-term state legislator "well respected in the community." (Will Rice was also a Mason, an Odd Fellow, and "an ardent Klansman"—all of which memberships his son later believed were "mistakes.") The death of John R. Rice's mother when he was six years old left a lasting mark on the man.At twelve Rice made a profession of faith and joined his parents' Southern Baptist Church. After being educated in public schools, he earned a teaching certificate and taught in a local primary school himself. In 1916 Rice entered Decatur Baptist College, (now Dallas Baptist University) Decatur, Texas--riding his cow pony 120 miles to get there. In 1918, he was drafted into the Army, but after his discharge the following year, he attended Baylor University, from which he graduated in 1920. Rice was attending graduate school at the University of Chicago and volunteering at the Pacific Garden Mission when he was called to the full-time ministry and returned to Texas. He married Lloys McClure Cooke, whom he had met at Decatur, and shortly thereafter he entered Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Rare.; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; Signed by Author

15 Rice, Otis K. Frontier Kentucky (Author Signed)
The University Press of Kentucky 1982 081310212X / 9780813102122 1st Edition Thus Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
Green cover with white lettering. Inscribed and signed by author Otis K. Rice. ; Kentucky Bicentennial Bookshelf; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 152 pages;

" Otis Rice tells the dramatic story of how the first state beyond the mountains came into being. Kentucky dates its settled history from the founding of Harrodsburg in 1774 and of Boonesborough in 1775. But the drama of frontier Kentucky had its beginnings a full century before the arrival of James Harrod and Daniel Boone. The early history of the Bluegrass state is a colorful and significant chapter in the expansion of the American frontier. Rice traces the development of Kentucky through the end of the Revolutionary War. He deals with four major themes: the great imperial rivalry between England and France in the mid-eighteenth century for control of the Ohio Valley; the struggle of white settlers to possess lands claimed by the Indians and the liquidation of Indian rights through treaties and bloody conflicts; the importance of the land, the role of the speculator, and the progress of settlement; the conquest of a wilderness bountiful in its riches but exacting in its demands and the planting of political, social, and cultural institutions. Included are maps that show the changing boundaries of Kentucky as it moved toward statehood.
