Recollections of a Long Life  an Autobiography, Cuyler, Theodore Ledyard
4 Cuyler, Theodore Ledyard Recollections of a Long Life an Autobiography
Baker & Taylor 1902 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Brown Cover with gilt print. Uneven cut pages. Theodore Ledyard Cuyler (January 10, 1822 February 26, 1909) was a leading Presbyterian minister and religious writer in the United States. Cuyler was born at Aurora, New York, but his father died before he was five years old.[1] Cuyler graduated from Princeton University in 1841 and from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1846. He first became a pastor in Burlington, New Jersey.[2] Successful in reviving the flagging church, he was called in 1853 as pastor of the Market Street Dutch Reformed Church in New York City. His success there led to Cuyler's installation in 1860 as the pastor of the Park Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, from which he oversaw the construction of the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church a block away. Completed in 1862, the church served the largest Presbyterian congregation in the United States. Cuyler's friends and acquaintances included a staggeringly large number of other contemporary notables, including Horatius Bonar, Samuel Hanson Cox, Phillips Brooks, Horace Bushnell, Horace Greely, James McCosh, Gilbert Haven, Joseph Addison Alexander, Albert Barnes, William E. Dodge, Newman Hall, Richard Salter Storrs, Philip Schaff, Stephen H. Tyng, Charles Spurgeon, Benjamin M. Palmer, D. L. Moody, Charles G. Finney, President Benjamin Harrison, Vice President Henry Wilson, and Prime Minister William Gladstone.; 7.50 X 5.20 X 1.30 inches; 356 pages

7 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
