|Contextual Notes||Isaac Watts was a renowned English theologian and hymnodist who published popular children's verse with religious and moral content.|
Known as "the little hymn-book", this popular religious work was first published in 1715. The American collector, Wilbur Macey Stone, published an essay on it and created a check-list of over 300 editions published in England and America between 1715 and 1900 including 95 editions published by N. Coverly in Boston. The British Library's holdings were 87 copies as of 1918 when Mr. Stone wrote his book. It is Dr. Watts who wrote "How doth the little busy bee improve each shining hour."
