About this Item

Somebody had to be North Carolina's first native born poet and the task/honor was Joseph Thomas's, and he did it with A Poetical Descant! It is scarce, having been printed in small format in a small town by a very small-time printer for a rather small audience. Thomas's other publications include a hymnal and short works of theology (totally fitting given that he was an itinerant preacher), and an autobiograpy. 12mo (13 cm; 5.25"). 219, [1 (errata)] pp. Wegelin, American Poetry, 1168; Shaw & Shoemaker 39076. Recent quarter cloth with blue-green paper sides, in the style of early 19th-century American books. Ex?mercantile library with a few stamps, including on title?page. Two letters of title abraded and mostly invisible. A clean copy. Bookseller Inventory # 10217
