Misc. Comments

HTI (Temperley): The only known copy of ed. 1 (scan uploaded above) lacks pp.149–52, but the index shows the contents to be identical to ed. 2. It may have first appeared in numbers. The Public Advertiser announced, 30 June 1760, ‘Number II of a new work, entitled PSALMODY MADE EASY; or, The Psalm-Singer’s Compleat Companion . . . by A. Williams,’ to appear in 17 numbers which would make 2 vols. in ‘royal octavo’; sold by J. Fuller and A. Williams: no other work of this description is known. For later American eds. see TansWRM 3a–4b, BaylDAH, BaylDAHUP
