  • Signatures : [A]-W4 ; wove paper
  • Preface [headed by ornamental border] : "... It may be thought that the rules, here given, are too short and indefinite [but] it is hoped that they may be found to contain all that is necessary. Those who wish to become acquainted with the abstruse principles of the science can...consult treatises designed expressly for that purpose .... The compiler has insert[ed] a considerable number of old tunes, which have been universally approved .... Hoping that the work may contribute in some measure to improve the taste for music, and be found to contain a suitable variety of tunes for religious worship ...."--p. [iii]

  • Copyright statement : signed by N. Goodale--t.p. verso
  • Compiler's note : "The compiler offers his grateful acknowledgements to those gentlemen, who have so liberally contributed ... and, also, to his numerous subscribing frineds, to whose generous patronage he is so much indebted: he regrets that the paper, on which this work is published is not such as he intended; he hopes, however, that the addition of several blank staves, which were not proposed in the conditons, will be considered, as in some measure compensating this defect"--p.
