1911 James Edition "Original Sacred Harp"
Joseph Stephen James (1849-1931) (and others in the editing committee)
Atlanta: J.S. James, 1911, 1921 reprint.
This edition of the Sacred Harp was the fore-runner of the 1936 Denson edition (the direct ancestor of the current 1991 edition). It is famous for its "cheese notes" (see notes to song No.82, top, for explanation), some of which contain errors (for example attributions to Chopin rather than Chapin, and Sir John Stevenson rather than Joseph Stephenson of Poole)
