About this Item

Sole edition of these hymns (without the music). James Montgomery (1777?1854) wrote these hymns possibly while in residence at Sheffield, England, "where he had come to be accounted a local hero, and grew more and more in the respect of his fellow-townsmen by his exemplary life and activity in furthering every good work, whether philanthropic or religious." DNB asserts that Montgomery was, as a poet, "only eminent in descriptive passages, for which he is usually indebted to books rather than his own observation of nature. . . . On the whole he may be characterised as something less than a genius and something more than a mediocrity." 12mo. lvi, 390 pp., [5] ff. NSTC 2M33990. Publisher's red cloth. Small areas of spine rubbed, slight loss of cloth at head and foot. Covers with just a bit of soiling. Light foxing on initial and final leaves. Ex-library, with paper shelf label on spine, bookplate on front pastedown, and call number in pencil on verso of title-page. Bookseller Inventory # 20857
