Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover.16-page b/w photo section 5 maps 6 x 9 "Confederate Corsair: The Life of Lt. Charles W. "Savez" Read is must reading for anyone savoring naval warfare and tales of derring-do. Read has long merited a biography, and Robert A. Jones has met and mastered the challenge in an exemplary manner that readers will applaud." -Edwin C. Bearss Historian Emeritus, National Park Service Lieutenant Charles W. "Savez" Read's life was one of swashbuckling adventure and dazzling escapes. Yet very little has been known about him until recently. Robert A. Jones has tracked down all available sources on this Confederate privateer-including unpublished material from Read's grandchildren-and written an exciting biography that reveals the impact of naval power on the Civil War. For example, while the North's navy projected its force at will, the South chose hit-and-run tactics that slowly bled the North's resources, as many of Read's exploits will show. Robert A. Jones holds a B.S. in mechanical engineering and has been employed by the Department of the Navy for 33 years. He provided historical background research for a 1970 proposal to the Smithsonian Institution for the salvage of the USS Tecumseh and recently published an article on the salvage of the CSS Virginia.; 0.98 x 9.26 x 6.2 Inches; 226 pages

Review of Paley's Moral Philosophy, No Author Listed
19 No Author Listed Review of Paley's Moral Philosophy
Southern Presbyterian Review ca1850 1st Edition Thus Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
This early imprint (circa 1850) is from Dr. William Paley, D.D. The Principles of Moral and Political Economy. No cover and pages browning due to age. It was found among other Civil War Era imprints. The notable signature is that of J. Banks Lyle who is thought to be Joseph Banks Lyle a Teacher from S.C. and Oklahoma who was a CAPTAIN 5 REGT SC INF, Confederate States Army, South Carolina, who was granted the Confederate Medal of Honor. Born: Dec. 6, 1829, near Winnsboro, S.C. Died: Aug. 16, 1913, buried at Caddo Cemetery, Oklahoma .J. Banks Lyle, graduated A.B. from South Carolina College in 1856, was a Confederate War Hero, and a Teacher at Limestone Springs Academy in Spartanburg County, S.C. In 1870 he moved West where he taught at Paris, Tx, and Caddo Indian Territory (Oklahoma). An account of Captain Lyles was given by General Bratton as follows: "The most conspicuous feat of valor and skill (personal) that came in my knowledge during the war of secession was achieved in my brigade by an officer on the 27th of October, 1864. In the severe and constant fighting of that army, my staff, as well as line suffered, and it was necessary to fill the places of the wounded with officers of the line. To meet such demands, Capt. J. Banks Lyle, of the 5th S.C. regiment was then and had been for some time rendering efficient service in the brigade staff. On the morning of the above date, the enemy were in heavy force on the north side of the James and assailed our works with more or less vigor at various points, extending their attacks to and beyond the Charles City Wood.In the afternoon his cavalry assaulted our works, on the Williamsburg road held by our cavalry and were driven off. Field's division of cavalry was promptly moved to the Williamsburg road in anticipation of the assault by infantry, which followed, pushing our cavalry further to the left, my brigade under its Senior, Col. Walker, occupying the line crossing the road and were in position to meet and repulse it. In their retreat quite a number of them took refuge in a wash or gully, which ran through a depression in the filed some 300 or 400 yards in front of our line, nearly half way to the enemy's line. Capt. Lyle saw that they were whipped and would surrender if called on to do so. He so reported and asked permission to advance the skirmish line and take them in. His request was refused , but convinced that they would escape, simply because they were not invited to surrender before night came to cover their retreat he determined to attempt their capture. He went to the skirmish line and tried to get them to volunteer, and failing in that (all were willing to go if ordered), he started alone, but had not advanced a great ways when two men (I am sorry I cannot give their names) called out "hold on captain, you shan't go by yourself" and moved out with him. They had gone but a short distance when he concluded not to subject his brave little force to the danger of the possible error of his judgment, but to use their aid without risk to them. He had observed an officer trying to arouse the collapsed spirit of his men in the gully, and halting his volunteers on the crest overlooking their position, and ordered them to fire on the officer and put a stop to the harangue, while he advanced alone over the open field in full view of Field's division on our side and the whole force of the enemy on the other side. He was recognized by the men of his own brigade, but hose of the other one, misapprehending his conduct, fired on him at long range so heavily that the dust form bullets falling around him almost concealed him from view. This continued until word could be passed along the line stopping it, and of course served to attract the attention of all to him as he approached the gully where the enemy were, and in full view of friend and foe accomplished the capture, and made them file out without arms and move on to our lines. There was great excitement and enthusiasm on our side. Men all along the division mounted the works and exclamations of admiration, and inquiring "who is he, etc." The enemy did not seem to understand it at first, and took no part until they saw the men filing into our works, when they opened a battery on the scene which contributed to the general excitement, but was especially effective in hurrying the movement of the prisoners into our works. The number of officers and men captured were about 600 with three stands of colors and swords by the armful."It was based on this deed that he won the Confederate Medal of Honor by the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Captain Lyle moved to Caddo, O.K. from S.C. where he died on August 16, 1913, Captain Lyle had lived in Caddo the past sixteen years (since 1897), was 84 years of age at his death.Captain Lyle prior to the Civil War was a school teacher in South Carolina and at the outbreak raised a company of volunteers composed chiefly of his pupils. He served the entire four years in the Confederate Army and was recommended for promotion for conspicuous bravery and intelligent conduct.
