Volume one of the “New Edition” of George Osborn’s nineteenth-century collection of The Poetry of John and Charles Wesley provides access to the original poems of the eighteenth-century Wesleys, as well as their translations and altered versions of others’ poetical works. It provides necessary background information relative to those poems–details historical, bibliographical, and biographical that Osborn omitted or of which he had no knowledge.

Reviews

“Essentially, this refurbished version of Osborn’s collection, when placed on library shelves beside the three volumes of Kimbrough and Beckerlegge, will allow students and scholars of eighteenth-century verse and hymnology opportunities to view and assess the fullest range possible of the literary contributions of John and Charles Wesley to the social, political, and theological spheres of their day.2 Finally, until a complete edition of the poetry of John and Charles Wesley comes forth, Osbom’s collection remains the best of the lot; as such, it cannot be allowed to disappear from library shelves, with its few remaining sets consigned into the hands of antiquarian book collectors and used book shops.”
