Boston: Oliver Ditson & Company, 1867. Hardcover. Title continued: "with an easy morning service in F consisting of Te Deum and Benedictus." Copyright 1858. vii, [1], 7-203 p.: music; 26 x 32 cm. Original black leather spine with black pebble-grain cloth over boards. Gilt-stamped cover title: Cathedral Chants. Blind-ruled borders on both boards. All page edges red. Yellow endpapers with publisher's advertisements running in portrait orientation. Blank leaf following front free endpaper inscribed: "Mrs. Millett, Christmas 1869" with additional calligraphic embellishment. Below the copyright statement is "Note to the Explanatory Remarks," which begins "Since the publication of the first edition of this work." The advertisements on the endpapers include C.H. Ditson & Co., New York, which was established by Oliver Ditson's son in 1867. These facts indicate that, in spite of the copyright statement, this was issued in 1867, 1868, or 1869. The only change was probably the addition of the Note, in which Tuckerman explains that the capitalized words were meant to be prolonged, rather than emphasized. An American organist and composer, Samuel Parkman Tuckerman (1819-1890) spent much of his adult life in Europe, and it was during seven years in England that he drew many of these chants from material he found in English cathedrals. Scarce. In Good+ Condition: leather at ends of spine lacking; remaining leather on spine is rubbed; edges and corners of boards rubbed; a few corners creased; a few marginal pencilled notations; otherwise clean and solid. Good +. Item #002808
