Boston: Munroe, Francis, and Parker, 1808. Original full calf, gilt-lettered and ruled, 179 pp. with the ownership inscription of Hannah Kast Haskins. April 8, 1810, and in another hand "Presented by Her Honoured Grand Papa John Haskins, Seniour" (1829-1814). Hannah was the daughter of John Haskins, Junior (1762-1840); she and her cousin Ralph Waldo Emerson shared this grand papa, a prominent cooper and distiller in Boston. Hannah has made an elaborate doodle of her name at the top of the first hymn. Both boards detached but present; spine ends chipped and gilt almost entirely eroded. Paper browned with staining to the binder's leaves; the front free endpaper, bearing the inscription, is loose. A Poor copy, but distinguished by scarcity and provenance.
Title: Hymns, Selected From the Most Approved Authors for the Use of the Trinity Church, Boston.
