Descripción

8vo, pp. [7], 12-102; light stains on title, else a very clean copy, rebound in modern cloth. From Wigan Public Library, with small library stamp on title verso, but no other marks. First and only edition of this rare poem by David Bradberry (1735-1803), who was minister of the congregational Cannon St chapel in Manchester. Bradberry had succeeded Joseph Priestley's brother Timothy there in 1785, but as the DNB records, he was not very successful because he was unable to persuade the Scottish members of his flock not to govern the church with 'ruling elders' in their own traditional fashion. (They later seceded and erected their own dissenting chapel in Mosley St.) In fact, the year this poem was printed Bradberry resigned his post and left Manchester for good. In view of this, rather appropriately, the poem's subject is the day of judgment, described in a series of nine-line stanzas with rhyme-scheme aabbccdde, the lines becoming shorter throughout the stanza. The poem is dedicated to God himself, but described in lengthy terms as 'Jehovah Emanuel, by indefeasible right, Sovereign of the Universe, prince of the Kings of the Earth, Governot General of the World, Chief Shepherd, or Archbishop of Souls [etc, etc]'. ESTC online locates seven copies in Britain and just two elsewhere - at Yale and Illinois. N° de ref. de la librería 17700
