Review of Paley's Moral Philosophy, No Author Listed
52 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.

55 Robinson, Bud Nuggets of Gold
Louisville, KY Pentecostal Publishing Co. c1930 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
No publication date, but circa 1920's. Red cover with gold print. Cover worn and has discoloration on back. Clean contents. Reuben "Uncle Bud" Robinson 1860-1942 Uncle Bud Robinson was born in a log cabin in the primitive mountain region of Tennessee. When he was 16, his father died, and his mother sold what little they had and moved to Texas. After an unsuccessful endeavor as a sharecropper, Bud hired out as a ranch hand. In August of 1880, during a camp meeting, he felt deep conviction for his sin and received Christ as his Saviour and was gloriously saved. That same night, while lying under the wagon with his hat on a mesquite stump for a pillow, the Lord called him to preach. Although he had no education and stuttered so badly that he could hardly tell his name, yet in the first year of his ministry he saw about 300 conversions in his meetings. On January 10, 1893, he married Miss Sallie Harper at Georgetown, Texas. For two years he served the Hubbard cir- cuit, but the remaining 60 years of his ministry were given to evangelism. While lacking formal education, Uncle Bud had a wisdom all of his own. It was an unusual insight into the purpose for the redeemed man here on earth, a holy walk, day by day. His philosophy is seen in the following prayer he prayed each morning: "O Lord, give me a backbone as big as a sawlog, and ribs like sleepers under the church floor. Put iron shoes on me and galvanized breeches, and hang a wagon- load of determination in the gable end of my soul. And help me to sign the contract to fight the devil as long as I have a vision, and bit him as long as I have a tooth, and then gum him till I die! Amen!" During his long ministry, it is estimated that Uncle Bud traveled over 2,000,000 miles, preached over 33,000 ser- mons, witnessed more than 100,000 conversions, personally gave more than $85,000.00 in helping young people with their Christian education, secured over 53,000 subscriptions to his church paper, The Herald of Holiness, and wrote 14 books and sold more than 500,000 copies. In spite of his handicaps and physical ailments, speech impediment and lack of education, he made the Who's Who of California. From Boston to Los Angeles, thousands thronged to hear him, charmed by his homespun wit and his unique presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His life was one of activity, and his will to his dying hour was to serve his Lord. He went to be with the Lord on November 2, 1942.
