[This edition was first described by Dibdin from Lord Spencer's imperfect copy. The volume consists of 100 leaves in gothic letter, without any marks, 34 lines to the page. Dibdin notes Lord Spencer's copy as having only 99 leaves, so, therefore, it must lack a leaf. Only one other perfect copy can be traced-Lord Crawford's. There is an imperfect copy in the Laurentian Library at Florence. Dibdin ascribed the volume to the press of J. de Colonia, but Lord Crawford, and later bibliographers, to that of Zell. -Catalogue.]

[The first edition of the Hymns and Spiritual Songs of Dr. Watts, published in 1707, ranks among the libri rarissimi, and in fact was long unknown. There is no copy in the British Museum, which possesses nothing prior to the fifth edition of 1716, and nearly all the collectors of such literature have been unsuccessful in meeting with any of the early impressions. Bound at the end of the volume is a "Supplement to the first book" (published in 1709), the title to this latter was cancelled when bound with the "Hymns." A few headlines of this copy were cut into.Catalogue.]
