Notes

A lovely binding on a scarce printing of the Brady & Tate Psalms. Richard Hett produced an edition like this at least once every two years between 1771 and 1785; all are on the scarce side but this one unusually so, with ESTC locating just five copies (Marsh's Library, Ripley Castle, the Soane Museum, St Deiniol's, and Winchester Fellows), making it the only Hett printing to have no representation in the BL, or indeed any of the UK copyright libraries.
