     "The Baptist Hymn Book; Original and Selected. In two Parts. By W. C. Buck, Pastor of the East Baptist church, Louisville, Ky.," was published in Louisville, in 1842. The first part contained eight hundred and sixty-eight "Hymns," and the second part about two hundred " Songs." Within two years, about ten thousand copies of this hymn book were sold, chiefly in the states of the Mississippi valley, and in 1844, a new "carefully revised and stereotyped edition," appeared "with a few choice hymns added to the second part," making the number two hundred and eleven. In this enlarged form, "The Baptist Hymn Book" long held a place in the Baptist churches of the Middle, Western and Southern States.
