[PSALMS] PSALMS, in Portions of convenient Length for Public Worship; collected from the most approved Versions …
Huddersfield: Printed and sold by J. Brook, Bookseller.  1791
Small 8vo (142 × 87 mm) in half-sheets, pp. [120]; well-preserved contemporary panelled reversed calf, gilt morocco longitudinal label (‘Josh Radcliffe, Esq. 1795’) to front cover.
‘Compiled by William Richardson [for fifty years Perpetual Curate at St Michael le Belfrey, York]. Originally published in York as A collection of psalms, from the most approved versions [1788]’ (ESTC). There were a number of editions published in York; this appears to be only one from outside the city. ‘The portions are selected chiefly from the Old and New Versions, and from those of Watts and Merrick. The two letters at the beginning of every Psalm shew whose version it is. Each portion is of a length proper to be sung at one time’ (Preface).
ESTC locates a sole copy outside the UK, at the Union Theological Seminary.
