Charles Knowles attended the Putney School of Vermont, where as a young man he created this Psalm book to illustrate eight Psalms, that feature hand pressed, wood engravings to illustrate each passage. Originally it was printed as an edition of 10 signed, numbered copies on a hand press. Sadly, less than a year later, at the age of 18, the artist died.
