I enjoyed your list, but I wanted to add a couple of books.
1) The Old School Hymnal, published by Old School Hymnal Co., Inc. Conley GA., Birmingham, AL and Cincinnati, OH. The first edition was in about 1920 and it continued for 11 editions. I own some #10s, copyright 1964, published April 1976, and some #11's copyright 1983, published Dec., 1988.
2)The Primitive Baptist Hymn & Tune Book compiled by Elder John R. Daily, owned and published by Earl and Wm. T. Daily,Indianapolis, IN. In a letter in the front from John R. Daily dated Sept,1918 it says that nearly 40,000 copies had been sold since it started. It doesn't say when it started. The copy I have was purchased in the 1970's. We used it at our Primitive Baptist Church until I moved in 1979, but I think they still use it.

Sandy, thanks so much for reading and commenting. I'm glad to get all the information I can. I have Elder Daily's books listed HERE. Best I could find the first edition came out in 1902, so I put it there -- though it has been reprinted many times up to the present. I think the 1920 date is correct, as best I can tell, for the first Old School Hymnal. I listed it, but didn't try to list all the various editions since I don't know enough to know which are different and which might just be a reprinting of the same book. I look forward to any other information you might have on any song books (or any other topic, for that matter). Have a good evening and blessed Lord's Day.
