This ninth volume of the “New Edition” of George Osborn’s nineteenth-century collection of The Poetry of John and Charles Wesley widens considerably the entrance into access of the original poems of the eighteenth-century Wesleys, as well as their translations and altered versions of others’ poetical works. This “New Edition” provides general readers and researchers alike with necessary background information relative to those poems–details historical, bibliographical, and biographical that Osborn omitted or of which he had no knowledge. This “New Edition” becomes an important research tool, rather than simply a polished reissue of a literary antique under new bindings.
