"The text, taken by Samuel Ruggles (Dibble) from the book of Genesis, contains 12 numbered sections of questions and answers. It was issued with printed wrappers; the title repeats on the front, and the back wrapper has a caption title "No Ka Hele Ana i ke Kula Sabati," followed by eight numbered paragraphs. The printed minutes of the June 1833 General Meeting record an edition of 10,000 copies."--David W. Forbes: Hawaiian National Bibliography 1780-1900, Vol. II, item #815.

The Hawaiian mission of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) had its beginnings in 1820 when a company of missionaries sailed for Hawaii, lead by Hiram Bingham. "With abundat courage and an inflexible will, yet cheerful, good-natured, and highly capable, he was from the beginning the natural leader of the mission (caricatured as Abner Hale in James Michner's novel Hawaii).... The phenomenal success of the mission due in considerable part to the role he and his wife, Sybil, played in winning the strong allegiance of the principal chiefs. [She] did much to bring the powerful regent Kaahumanu and others to the Christian faith. Hiram, too, won the allegiance of Hawaiians, but his forcefulness not only brought him into conflict with foreigners who resented missionary interference with their commercial, political, and sexual interests, but also irritated collegues... He helped create a writing system for the Hawaiian language, translated several books of the Bible, and produced Elementary Lessons, First Book for Children, Scripture Catechism, First Teacher, and a hymn and tune book."--Gerald H. Anderson: Biographical Dictionary of Christian Missions, (c1998) p.63-64. Samuel Ruggles and his wife Nancy sailed with the first company of missionaries to Hawaii which also included the printer Elias Loomis. They spent 15 years at the Hawaiian Island working as teachers. Ruggles also translated the Catechism on Genesis, with some help from Sheldon Dibble--another missionary who arrived in the fourth company of missionaries, as a 22 year old, as a 22 year old.

Volume I, No. 1, January 1828 (pp1-7) issue of this periodical explained the reason for a new magazine: "It has for some time past appeared exceedingly desirable, that there should be Published in Boston a periodical work, in which that portion of the community, usually denominated orthodox, can easily and frequently express those view of truth and duty, which, after a full and fair examination, are judged to be of great importance. At present, although there are several respectable religious magazines in our country, none of them can be made to accomplish all the beneficial ends which the interest of the church now require. After serious and prayerful deliberation, therefore, it has been determined to establish an new magazine." The editor continues saying the Spirit of the Pilgrims is being established in the spirit of the Theological Magazine of New York in 1797 and The Connecticut Evangelical Magazine not long after.

Seven-shape Shape-note Tunebook, 1851


AIKIN, JESSE B. The Christian Minstrel: A New System of Musical Notation; With a Collection of Psalm Tunes, Anthems, and Chants, Selected from the Most Popular Works in Europe in America. Designed for the Use of Churches, Singing-Schools, and Societies. By J. B. Aikin. Twentieth Edition. Philadelphia, T. K. Collins, Jr., ; E. C. & J. Biddle; T. K. & P. G. Collins. Lancaster, Judd & Murray. New York, H. Long. Boston, Fetridge & Co.. Cincinnati, D. Anderson. Columbus, S. N. Whiting & Huntington. Wheeling, Va., John Fisher. 1851. Oblong 9 x 5 inches. $175.00

Aikin's Christian Minstrel (Phila, 1846) was the second but first successful attempt to substitute 7 shapes for the traditional 4 shape fasola hymnals. It "endured for decades and went into as many as 171 editions. Aikin's choice of simple elementary forms for his three additional note-heads has been shown to be fortunate by the fact that his shapes are used today by all the seven-shape rural song-book publishers in the South and have been the standard notation in that territory for over fifty years. ...In Aikin's Preface he stated clearly his hopes that his book would supplant the `trashy publications' which had up to that time, `supplied the churches, especially of the South and West...' He also hoped that his new notation would swell the numbers of those who could read music easily. He explained that he had reduced the varieties of musical measure to three, two-two, three-two, and six-four time; that he had excluded the minor scale from consideration in his rudiments as an unnatural, impractical, confusing, and really non-existent phase of music; that he had but one sort of clef for all four parts, one that has G in the middle (third line) of the staff; and that he had expressed the key of the tune by words and not by symbols."--Jackson: White Spirituals in the Southern Uplands, p.320-21.

Bound black morocco spine with printed paper over boards, printed paper heavily worn & rubbed, large portions of it worn away especially on rear cover, crease in front cover, foxing, pencil notes and scribbling on endpapers.

His need of support spurred a number of small Baptist missionary societies to form. These were consolidated in 1814 as "The General Convention of the Baptist Denomination in the United States of America for Foreign Missions. It was reorganized in 1846 after the Southern Baptist had withdrawn the previous year, as the American Baptist Missionary Union." This volume is record of the Union's missionary activities around the world in 1877-78, including Burma, India, China, Siam, Japan, and Congo & Uganda missions, as well as European missions in France, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Finland & Russia.
