The Whole Booke of Psalmes.


The Whole Booke of Psalmes Collected into English Meeter, by T. Sternhold, I. Hopkins, and others.

Woodcut of an angel on the title.

16mo. [86 x 50 x 29 mm]. [1], 173 [i.e.172], [17] ff. Contemporary embroidered binding of canvas over boards, worked in coloured silks, silver threads and coils and sequins, with a bird in an oval frame on the covers. (Worn with some loss, inside front board exposed with stub from a tie.)
Cambridge: Printed by the Printers to the University of Cambridge: and are to be sold at London by Roger Daniel at the Angel in Lumbard-street, 1628.

Lacking Aa8, the final leaf of the index. Folio 127 was missed in the pagination. Aa1 has been folded and attached with a sewing pin, and another pin has been left after B5 (careful - it is still sharp). A Richard Northcote has signed his name twice with the date 2d Jan 1732 inside the rear board.

A little light soiling and three small ink scribbles on f.103, but generally very good. The binding has seen better days, but more remains than is missing, and the two charming birds are still clearly visible. ESTC records eight editions or issues of The Whole Booke of Psalmes printed at Cambridge in 1628. This is not amongst them, and so appears to be unrecorded.
