Description: A SMALL COLLECTION OF PSALMS TO THE OLD TUNES, SUNG BY THE CHARITY CHILDREN . London, Faden, 1761. 6.75" x 3.75". 40, [26 leaves of manuscript music], 41-77,  pp., wanting final leaf of index. Text with engraved music and accompanying Psalms, manuscript leaves in similar fashion. Bound in modern cloth over boards, binding nearly detached, title with chips (some loss) and other leaves with marginal tears and chips (some with slight loss), title soiled and with some other stains in places including some faded water-stains to a few leaves, Fair. ****************************** An unusual copy of this work with numerous additional Psalms set to music in manuscript. The manuscript is contemporary with the book, and perhaps the scribe felt that some important tunes had been omitted which should not have been.
