ALLINE, Henry
Hymns and Spiritual Songs.
Ithaca, New York, U.S.A.:  Stonington-Port, Con. Printed by S. Trumbull. 1802.,  16mo, 16.5cm, 282p., in con-temporary full brown sheep, gilt ruled panel borders with small decorations in the center, gilt titles, some wear on the boards and edges, endpapers stained, a fragile production making this a very good sound copy , rare. (cgc) T.P.L. 6803. Alline was born in Rhode Island in 1748 and moved with his family to the township of Falmouth, N.S. in 1760. After a religious experience graphically described in his Life and Journals, he felt the call to preach and although further education was not available to him, resolved to become an evangelist. From 1776 to 1783 he traveled the Maritime Provinces on horseback and in all weathers preaching wherever he could. In August of that year he sought to carry his message to New England, but he died of complete exhaustion in New Hampshire in January 1784. His "New Light" church encouraged the singing of hymns and the lack of hymnals in Nova Scotia caused Alline to write many hymns himself. This is the first edition of the posthumous collection which was printed several times in New England. It is a very rare hymn book, and one of the first written by a Nova Scotian.
