Old Songs Hymnal: Words and Melodies from the State of Georgia

New York and London: The Century Co., (c. 1929). Hardcover. x, (approx. 198p.(including 187 hymns). Original purple cloth. dj. 20 cm. Jacket intact with soiling and chipping along edges and folds. "There are many beautiful collections of these songs, but all with accompaniments too difficult for the average person to play at sight, and so we present this volume as a hymn-book with the music as simple as possible, hoping that it will be used in church and home and school, preserving to us this precious heritage." [From the Foreword]. The book did not sell well and this earnest collaboration between Bolton, a white woman, and Burleigh, an African American man, is now quite scarce. Very Good / Good.
