The Poetical Works of Isaac Watts in 7 volumes – Bell’s edition [1782]

£195.00

Product description

The Poetical Works of Isaac Watts, DD, in Seven Volumes, with the Life of the Author (volumes 59-65 of Bell’s Edition of the Poets of Great Britain).

Complete set of seven small hardback volumes in red leather with gilt tooling, marbled endpapers, and gilt page edges. Printed by the Martins at the Apollo Press, Edinburg [sic], for John Bell of London, 1782.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748) was a logician and minister in the Congregational church who wrote around 750 hymns and was known as the “godfather of English hymnody”.

The volumes carry two sets of numbers, 1-7 and 59-65, on the spines. Contents of the volumes are as follows:

I, II: containing his Psalms of David, imitated in the language of the New Testament, and applied to the Christian state and worship, with preface, notes, indexes, &c &c &c.

III, IV: containing his Hymns and Spiritual Songs in three books: (I) collected from the scriptures, (II) composed on divine subjects, (III) prepared for the Lord’s supper.

V, VI: containing his Horae Lyricae in three books, Poems chiefly of the Lyrick kind, sacred (I) to devotion and piety, (II) to virtue, honour, and friendship, (III) to the memory of the dead.

VII: containing his Div. Hymns for Sermons, Div. Songs for Children, Mor. Songs for Children, Miscel. Thoughts, Inscriptions, Epigrams, Epitaphs, &c &c &c, now first collected together from the Quarto edition of 1753.

Volume seven’s front board plus endpapers are detached from the rest of the book and the frontispiece portrait of Watts is missing from that volume. All other volumes are intact. There are marks on some covers, and the spines are worn, as photographed.

This set of small books will be sent by courier.
