A rather rare ephemeral edition in wraps of a hymnal for Sunday Schools and for the temperance meetings associated with the "Band of Hope," a Methodist total-abstinence temperance group.
Dadmun [1819-1890] was a Methodist Episcopal pastor in Massachusetts, Civil War Chaplain with the Christian Commission in Virginia, and later Prison Chaplain to Deer Isle off the coast of Maine.
Dadmun, J.W. The Eolian Harp. A Collection of Hymns and Tunes. Sunday Schools and Band of Hope Meetings. Boston. For Sale by J.P. Magee. 1860. 48pp.
Good + copy of a rare little ephemeral hymnal. Some light handling, a few turns and minor tears.
