Watts, Isaac. Psalms carefully suited to the Christian Worship in the United States of America being an Improvement over the Old Version of the Psalms of David; bound with Hymns and Spiritual Songs, in Three Books I. Collected from the Scriptures, II. Composed on Divine Subjects, III. Prepared for the Lord's Supper. (With some New Hymns not in common editions.) See the End for New Hymns. Baltimore: Published by John & Thomas Vance | J. Robinson, Printer, 1815. [9850]

Thick leather binding, worn but with good joints, red leather spine title, small white ink spots to binding, 12.6 x 7 cm (5 x 2 3/4 inches). Psalms: (2), (1)-4, (13)-320 pp. including index; Hymns: (1)-286 pp. The gap between p. 4 and p. (13) in the Psalms is due to fewer preliminary pages being used in this edition; this volume is complete, no leaves are missing. Text is dark with old staining; a few marginal tears/chips in the Psalms section. Good. Full leather.

There is a separate title page for the Hymns, same imprint. The "New Hymns" are 14 in number, and the first several that we checked are by Watts.
