by Reverend Charles L. Hutchins

Condition: Good-/None

This antiquarian book is in good condition. There is significant wear on the front, back and spine of the cover boards and there is much spotting on the spine. The edges of the cover boards are also very worn. The corners are bumped. The lettering on the spine has faded and is fading on the front cover board. There is writing on the front end page. The pages are yellowed and tanned, but free of any markings.This hymnal has stood the test of time extremely well.

"As by the action of the General Convention (in setting forth a new collection of hymns), a new edition of the Church Hymnal was made necessary, so by the action of the same Convention in providing for an authorized pointing of the Canticles, etc., a new edition of the Chant Book seems to be required, or at least desired by many who have requested the editor of the Church Hymnal to prepare it. The same principal which guided the editor in the preparation of the Hymnal, viz., to provide for the needs of the average choir and congregation, has guided him in his work on this Chant and Service Book; and he sincerely hopes that it may be found useful wherever it is adopted.

Concord, Massachusetts,
Sept., A.D. 1894..."
