Zanesville, O. Printed for the Publisher, by Parke & Bennett, 1848. First edition. 12mo, contemporary black quarter roan, boards, 216 pages. Rubbed; head of the spine chipped; some closed tears to several leaves, with a little foxing and soiling; a good, sound copy. Item #19614
A Methodist camp meeting hymnal which evidently saw some use in the field; the boards have been rubbed with loss of much of the covering paper stock and subsequently coated at an early date with a light coat of brown stain to lend the whole thing something of a faux calf finish. A rough production in any case, with the first three gatherings in eight and the subsequent gatherings (including gathering J) in six. Early ink ownership signature on the front free endpaper. Morgan 416.
