4 A COLLECTION OF 50 "MINISTRY" BOOKS BETWEEN #1 AND #123 New Series Taylor, J. Sr.
U S A Stow Hill Bible and Tract Depot 1962 Presumed 1st Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Ministry; We fit archival quality clear acrylic covers for additional protection whenever possible. ; 16mo; This is a collection of Taylor's MINISTRY books in both original cloth and with some bound in leather. Uniformly fine throughout and appear to be 1st editions of the New Series, with errata laid in etc.. Nos included are 1-2, 4-6, 8, 10, 14, 18, 20, 25, 30-31, 33, 41, 43-45, 49, 53-56, 58, 60, 61, 63, 68, 66-70, 72-78, 82, 85-6, 89, 94-98, 100, 123. Published between 1962 and 1972. Although it does not so state these are probably by J Taylor Jr as he was active in the 1960's. The roots of the doctrine come from the so-called Plymouth Brethren began in the late 1820's. It was a gathering together of Christians who wanted to be outside of all other formal Christian organizations. Their basic Christian doctrines are those held by most Protestant denominations. They believe that now on the earth there is a body of Christ (referred to as the Church or Assembly) which is composed of all true Christian believers regardless of their religious affiliation. It was, however, their conviction that to belong to any Christian organization was a practical denial of the truth of this one body. They therefore accepted to practical fellowship all Christians who held sound fundamental doctrine, lived a godly life and were not in another formal Christian organization. They were a group of people who were very devoted to bible study, practical godliness and evangelization. The fellowship grew worldwide as years went on. [Taylor, J. Jr. Published a set in green cloth]. Since being listed a reader has sent me the following note which appears to be accurate. "The item description says that these books are likely J. Taylor Jr's ministry. That is incorrect. These volumes are J. Taylor Sr.' s ministry, not J. Taylor Jr's. J. T. Sr.' s ministry is color-coded in blue volumes, while Jr's always have green boards." 13984

BOOK COLLECTING

Almost from time immemorial book collecting, and before that manuscript collecting, and before that anything that you could scratch or carve a message on, has been the subject of much interest. Today we have many categories of book collecting- Fancy bindings, Religious books, Philosophy books, Mystery books, Modern 1st editions, Leather bound books, Textbooks, Early readers, Archaeology books, Art books, Children's books and numberless others. You need not break the bank on 15th and 16th century works. There are some areas that are not yet popular and have a lot of growing to do. Alice in Wonderland with it's endless editions and artists is a fertile field for study as is Disney and Pinocchio. Religious books are now enjoying a greatly increased following. Early readers have a ways to go in appreciation yet. Poetry works may be on the decline a bit though still holding firm. Areas that appear unexploited at this time are Salesman's Dummy books. These are typically turn of the century or early 20th century works comprising highlights of several books. They were designed for salesmen to take orders with. These frequently included covers, spines, limited amounts of text and a good supply of illustrations from each featured book all bound together. Currently these are cheap out of all proportion to their scarcity. Search and you shall find in the land where the Princes of Serendip reign. ARC's (Advance review Copies) are also scarce relative to their key role in publication. These usually contain uncorrected proofs of the book to be issued, often along with author's signatures. They usually sell, even signed, at a considerable discount to the First Edition work which actually came later. Local Cookbooks such as published for church groups, clubs, etc. are now very low priced. You have to have a game plan here or risk being overwhelmed by the mass of cheap material now out there. Beeton's 1907 magazine, arguably the most highly valued magazine is popular for pritning "A Study in Scarlet", Sherlock Holmes first appearance in print. This sold in 1929 for a few shillings, about 1974 it achieved 80L at auction. A couple of years ago it exeeded $150,000 when sold at auction. Early magazines with their appearances of Edgar Alan Poe, Frank Baum, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Maxfield Parrish, Winslow Homer and the Wyeths among hundreds of coveted authors and artists in print are a fertile field. The best children's collection assembled was put together by a poorly paid school teacher in the the years when Children's books were not considered suitable for serious collectors. Today that collection resides at Yale to world acclaim. There is such a large world out there. Pick your specialty, buy quality, and your search will be a happy one and your rewards many.
