Hood, George. A History of Music in New England: With Biographical Sketches of Reformers and Psalmists. Boston. Wilkins, Carter, & Co. 1846. 252pp. 

Original cloth looking quite good though faded on spine and edges of board and bumped. Very sound. Inscribed by the author on the blank ffep to Rev. Mr. Hotchkin. Text complete, sound and crisp. Some foxing and stains at margins scattered throughout. Aside from the stains, a rather nice, crisp copy. And, as mentioned, very rare.
