First edition. ‘Noel Humphreys, when over 50, produced one more illuminated book, The Penitential Psalms, in 1861. It is similar in format and style to the others: it is an older man’s work, with some very beautiful pages. Strangely, it contains neither date, not name of publisher or printer, and the first edition omits the name of Noel Humphreys himself’ (McLean).
