~ [Drop-head title:] CHRIST above All Praise... Inscribed to the Rev. Mr. Romaine, as a zealous Defender of the Supreme Godhead of the Lord Jesus. [London. 1768.]

8vo (192 × 126 mm), pp. 8; some dust-soiling to first and last pages, inkspots to p. 8; disbound.

Sole edition, very rare. A penny pamphlet dedicated to the evangelical preacher William Romaine (1714–1795), author of the ‘classic trilogy on Christian spirituality The Life of Faith (1763), The Walk of Faith (1771), and The Triumph of Faith (1795)’ (Oxford DNB). The poem was perhaps aimed at a less educated readership; there is an Explanation of Words (‘Acclaim. The Shout of Joy... Choir. A Band of Singers... Reptile. A creeping Thing...’ etc.) at the end. ESTC locates 2 copies only, at Bodley and the Rylands.
