Publication Details: Printed by A. Pari; and sold by Henry Haslop; and at the chapels of the United Brethren in Great Britain and Ireland , 1797

Notes: The Preface speaks of an earlier edition of 1789, but we can find no trace of such. This edition is recorded in only 3 copies in ESTC, BL, Congregational Library, and the Moravian Archives: COPAC adds NLS and Edinburgh University. This edition is said to contain a greater number of hymns, 'some of them new ... [and some] beautiful hymns by the late Dr. Watts' - Watts had died half a century before. A charming little book.
