Sweet Songster on Google Books

Couple of years ago I posted about A Singer and His Songs: E. W. Billups and The Sweet Songster.  I wrote:
The copy I have contains 350 pages with 285 numbered hymns, followed by 5 “choruses,” then 6 more hymns that are not numbered, then “A Form of Matrimony” (a short marriage ceremony), and a first lines index.
I have since discovered that The Sweet Songster, a Collection of the Most Popular and Approved Songs, Hymns, and Ballads is on Google Books. The scan there seems to correspond exactly with the reprint that I have.

[Note: it may have been added since I wrote that in October 2016, or perhaps I just failed to find it at the time.]
