Olney Hymns (ed. John Newton), 1779
A collection of hymns by John Newton and William Cowper, containing most of the hymns by the two authors which are still in common use. John Newton edited the collection, and was careful to mark with a `C' the hymns by "his friend".
There are three Sections:
The first of these is arranged in `biblical' order, with separate sub- sections for each book of the Bible represented.
The collection is the main source for all the extant hymns of both writers; though some of them had appeared previously in other Collections or Periodicals.
John Newton's Preface is dated Olney, Bucks, Feb.15, 1779.
