SABBATH SCHOOL HYMN. [Caption title].

SABBATH SCHOOL HYMN. [Caption title].

[Boston, MA]: Boston Chemical Printing Company, nd [ca. 1831-33]. Broadside on muslin. 30 x 29.5 cm. Three hymns, the first with music: "Sabbath School Hymn," including six verses and two lines of music, one for girls and one for boys; "We Never Part from Thee," in four verses; and "The Golden Rule," in eight lines. Circular & square typographical borders, with a printed line of text above three vignettes (one of a schoolmaster and his students): "Sabbath Schools first instituted by Robert Raikes in Gloucester, Eng. A.D. 1782." A few brown spots, but very good. Complex printing and visually appealing. Possibly by Sarah J. Hale, but not listed by BAL. Very similar to THREADS OF HISTORY #78, but unlisted and differing from it by including an extra poem, by not having a vignette below the text, and by listing the printer as 'Boston Chemical,' not 'Henry Bowen's Chemical Print.' OCLC lists three copies with the 'Boston Chemical Printing Company' as publisher: Yale, AAS, Boston Athenaeum. Item #64455
