Keywords:Books, History, Printing, John Kneeland, American literature
AbstractIN 1772 the Boston printer John Kneeland published a thin pamphlet containing a poem entitled REFLECTIONS OF A SAINT, UNDER A VIEW OF THE PRESENCE OF AN INFINITELY HOLY AND ALL-SEEING GOD by someone who signed himself "Philomuse." The only known copy of this eight-page imprint is in the Rutgers Library, though the John Carter Brown Library owns a "mutilated" and undated copy of another printing of the poem in Norwich, Connecticuty by Green and Spoonery printers of that town from 1773 to 1778. The poem is reprinted here.
