[New Brunswick - Early Imprint - Music]. [HUMBERT, Stephen]. Union Harmony : or British America's Sacred Vocal Musick. From the Most Approved English and American Composers, with Some Original Musick on Special Occasions. To Which is Prefixed a Concise Introduction. [quote from Psalm 146, 2d verse].

Oblong small 8vo (226 x 126 mm), brown paper over boards.

Item NB59 in FLEMING, Patricia Lockhart. Atlantic Canadian Imprints, 1801-1820 : A Bibliography.

"Since an 1801 edition of Union Harmony, well documented but not located, is considered Canada's first English-language book of music this second edition has been studied with particular interest by historians of Canadian music..." (Fleming p.32).

"The history of Canadian printed collections, with music, of the hymns and metrical psalms that are traditionally a part of most protestant forms of worship starts with Stephen Humbert's Union Harmony (Saint John, NB, 1801; later editions 1816, 1831, 1840). This is a substantial oblong-octavo volume modelled after publications of US composers of the Revolutionary era such as Swan, Read, Belknap, and Billings, each of whom in fact is represented in it by several tunes. Also in it are 12 original tunes by the compiler, Humbert, who often approximates the angular harmonies of his New England contemporaries and sometimes adopts their 'fuguing' format (whereby a crudely imitative texture is applied to the final phrase or two of a verse, as a contrast to chordal treatment of the earlier lines). In a 'Concise introduction' to the book Humbert defends this style." - John Beckwith in Kallmann, Potvin & Winters (eds.) Encyclopedia of Music in Canada, p.441.

Spine chipped, covers with heavy wear, corners rounded and paper peeling from boards, light foxing and browning to leaves, chipping to edges, worm holes to lower fore-corner of pages 120-180 mostly affecting only the margins of the leaves, small piece of corner missing from page 95-96 and lower margin of page 300-304 affecting music text.

10 Canada - Imprint - German - Broadside) Zum neuen Jahr unsers Herrn und Heylandes JESU CHRISTO Anno Domini, 1777. Will hierdurch ein Diener, JESU der Lieben Gemeinde zum bestaendigen Andencken und Liebe JESU reitzen
1777, 
(Canada – Imprint – German – Broadside). Zum neuen Jahr unsers Herrn und Heylandes JESU CHRISTO Anno Domini, 1777. Will hierdurch ein Diener, JESU derLieben Gemeinde zum bestaendigen Andencken und Liebe JESU reitzen : Auss. Luc. Am II. Cap. Und da acht Tage um wahren, dass dass Kind beschnitten wurde, da wurde seyn Nahme, genehut JESU, welcher genennet war von den Engel ehe Er in Mutter Leibe empfangen war : J.N.J. Kein Nahme ift so schon, als meines JESU Nahme, Weil Er auf Teutsch, so viel als Seelichmacher heist: Es ist auch diesses Kind der rechte Weibes Saame, Der unss den Weg zum ewigen Leben weist: Den Nahmen last unss tieff, in das Hertze graben, Und in der letzten Noth, in unssern Munde haben. Euer Wohl-Wunscher und Diener J.C. C.V.W. Broadside (10 by 7.75 inches), on laid paper, no watermark. Printed one side only, with decorative border.

Not in Tremaine.

Possibly the earliest known German imprint in Canada.

It is likely the work of Anthony Henry (Anton Heinrich, 1734-1800) the Nova Scotia printer and an immigrant of German extraction.

According to the DCB, "socially Henry mixed with the German element in Halifax and at one time was a warden of the little Dutch church."

We are guessing that the "C.V.W." is Carl Magnus von Wrangel who is sending a Christmas greeting from Sweden to either the Nova Scotian Lutheran community.
Whether he asked for it to be printed or it was a local initiative is unknown. The fact that the document is not printed in Fraktur would seem an argument that it was not printed in Pennsylvania, Deleware, or the other centres of American Lutheranism as Fraktur printing was by then quite common there. Also it was the time of the Revolutionary War, so contact would be minimal.

Vertical tear along most of central crease, three horizontal creases, wear and short tear to edges, a few brown spots, small tear hole in centre of document affecting the word “den” before ”Engel”, contemporary (?) penned note to back, else complete copy. As is.

Very scarce. 5,000.00
