About this Item

Period Boards with Original Paper Wrappers on Cover. 8vo. 55 pages ; 19 cm. In Hebrew and English. A scarce 1888 edition of Simon Hechtís book of "Jewish Hymns for Sabbath Schools and Families. " "The ready sale of my hymn-book proved that my opinion of the influence of Music in religious schools was correct. Since the first edition appeared this subject has been repeatedly discussed and an offer was made by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations of a prize for the best Jewish Hymn-book for the use of Sabbath Schools. I have done my best to meet this want more completely in this edition. If on examination it shall be proven that some one else has done better, I shall be sorry for myself, but very glad for the schools in whose interest I have toiled. The favorable reception of my first edition has induced me to spare no pains nor expense to improve and enlarge the present one [to fifty-two English and German hymns with music] . As my chief design has been to meet the wants of the children who need easy and pleasant melodies I have avoided all musical pomp and sought to keep the tunes within the range of their voices . The reader will not only find here pieces of a purely religious character, but also such as treat Universal Moral Subjects. I also thought it proper to insert some patriotic hymns, for while we are Jews, we are also Citizens of America finding beneath the protection of stars and stripes equal rights and liberty with all . (Other Editions Include ) Cincinnati: Bloch, 1888 [Wachs #376] " (Goldman, 289) OCLC lists no copies of this edition worldwide. Paper browning slightly, and cover has some wear. Overall about very good condition. (AMR-48-10). Bookseller Inventory # 37365
