A Dictionary of Hymnology setting forth the Origin and History of Christian Hymns of All Ages and Nations. 4 Volume Set (A-Z Plus Index and appendix)

Julian, John
The boards are very badly rubbed, in some places exposing the cardboars, and the corners are chipped. The outer edge of the spine is exposed in Volume 1 and the front board warped, there is also a gift inscription on the front end paper. Internally the books are in excellent condition with no inner markings and the binding solid. A very good set in poor boards. Revised edition, with new supplement. Second impression. "A Dictionary of Hymnology (or, more completely, A Dictionary of Hymnology: Origin and History of Christian Hymns and Hymnwriters of All Ages and Nations, Together with Biographical and Critical Notices of Their Authors and Translators) by John D. Julian, first published in 1892, was for over 100 years a standard historical reference for early Christian hymns, with more than 40,000 entries.The work contains biographical and historical notes about the history of hymns and hymn writers. It is not a collection of hymn texts or hymn tunes, though brief quotations and references are included. Originally published in 1892 in London by John Murray and in New York City by Charles Scribner's Sons, it was reprinted in 1907-1908 by John Murray, in 1957 by Dover Publications (in two volumes) and in 1985 by Kregel Publications. It was not revised after 1902, but remains an important source for early Christian hymns, such as Latin ones.Its successor, the Canterbury Dictionary of Hymnology, edited by J.R. Watson and Emma Hornby, was published on-line by Canterbury Press in October 2013
