About this Item: Johann Bar [i.e., Baer], Lancaster [PA], 1820. Second edition of the second official U.S. Mennonite hymnal. Early Mennonite immigrants made use of the Ausbund and the Lobwasser Gesangbuch, both of which appeared in American editions, but they soon decided they needed a songbook of their own. The committee formed to produce it split over how long the book should be, with one faction printing Die Kleine Geistliche Harfe in 1803 and the other opting for this text, first printed in 1808. This German blackletter hymnal includes unaccompanied melodies in its first portion. The psalter, hymnal, and index are separately paged, the hymnal having a special title-page reading "Unpartheyisches Gesang-Buch, zum allgemeinen Gebrauch des wahren Gottesdienstes. . . ." Part 1 includes 62 psalms; part 2 includes 390 hymns plus 3 appendices containing 35, 32 and 14 hymns. Name of melody to be used with each hymn keyed with melody index; melody printed at beginning of hymn for which it is named. 8vo (18.2 cm, 7.2"). 79, [1], 472, 18 pp. Shoemaker 4070; German Language Printing in the U.S., 2438. Publisher's plain brown calf with evidence of leather and brass clasps. Serious brown staining in upper portion of text area of book from the title to p. 140 of the second pagination. Age-toning, some dampstaining. Upper outer corners of last leaf missing causing loss of page number. Far from an ideal copy, but sound and priced for its faults. Seller Inventory # 35187
