Pictured below is a hymn and psalm book entitled 'New York Grace Church Collection' by W. A. King, printed in 1852. This antique book contains 'Sacred Music selected and arranged from the Classical and Sacred Works of the Great Composers, and adapted to the Psalms and Hymns of the Protestant Episcopal Church', with an organ accompaniment. There is a dedication to Edmund M Schermerhorn Esq, a preface by the author, about 50 pages of music and an index at the back. The signature of an owner Nina Prime is on the first clear page, and the year 1855. This is a large format book, measuring 10 1/4 inches by 14. The binding is worn, and the cover is mottled. The pages are generally intact but they are toned and foxed, and one corner of the title page is missing. There are some archival numbers on the first clear page.
