19 Watts, Isaac The Psalms of David, Imitated in the Language of the New Testament, and Applied to the Christian State and Worship (bound Together with) Hymns and Spiritual Songs in Three Books
Sandbornton, NH N.P. 1836 Full Leather Very Good No Jacket 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall 
310pp. + 272pp. Bound in a lovely full crushed leather with what amounts to three compartments on the backstrip stamped in gilt lettering and a diamond floral device. All edges marbled. The binding is contemporary to the period. Stereotyped by T.H. Carter & Co. of Boston, MA (according to the title page on the second volume). Watts holds an important place in the history of hymnody since he, "...treated his subject matter with more freedom than his predecessors, who had sought above all else a literal rendering. Although some opposed his verses, they were eventually regarded in many quarters as almost the equivalent of Holy Writ" (Hughes American Hymns Old and New page 588). Faint pencil notation on the front pastedown, but no identifiable ownership inscriptions. Three corners gently bumped. Extremities rubbed, but only one corner rubbed through. Some foxing. Easily the loveliest Watts hymnal we've handled in terms of the condition of the binding.. A search of the OCLC Worldcat yields no matches for this edition in institutional holdings.
