Comments: Hardbound small 8vo; XII, 272 and 4 pp. Anonymously written Preface dated Easter 1870: the translators argue that the Psalms have not been grouped by their common numbering, but according to the periods of the history to which they seemed to belong. Scripture text printed in three different letter fonts: direct speech and repeated chorus marked out distinctly. Chamberlin names the "four friends" as A.W. Plotts, F.E. Kitchener, J.S. Phillpotts, and C.T. Arnold.
