NEVER PUBLISHED (WHEATLEY, PHILLIS.) Proposal for Republishing by Subscription, Poems by Phillis Wheatley. To which will be Added (Never Before Published) Her Posthumous Works, Consisting of Poems, on Various Subjects and Letters to Eminent Persons in Great Britain and America with their Answers etc. 7x21/2 inch column [in] The Massachusetts Spy: or Worcester Gazette, for July 28, 1791. Bi-folium, folded to form 4 pages. 4to; removed from a larger volume; some foxing; paper toned; original subscriber's name in ink opposite the masthead. Worcester: Isaiah Thomas, 1791
This edition of Phillis Wheatley's Poems apparently was under-subscribed and thus never published. Eighteenth-century editions of her Poems printed in the U.S. are 1786, 87, 89 and 1793 (an Albany edition). The advertisement is all the more interesting for the mention of "Never Before Published" material.Price Realized (with Buyer's Premium) $1,093
