1 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 (17181747) and a paternal collateral descendant of the famed Church of England clergyman-author Jeremy Taylor (16131667). 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
