1803.056: An Ode by J. R Toulmin.
Full Title: An ode. By J. R Toulmin. Oh! cruel fate, that man should be doomed to abject slavery … Lexington. May 7. 1803 …
Author: Toulmin, J. R.
Place Issued: Lexington
Issuing Press: Uncertain
Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 32 cm. x 20 cm. (broadside).
This anti-slavery poem evidently sold well enough that Toulmin soon proposed publishing a collection of his verse (1803.057); as no copy of that offered work is known, either by direct or indirect evidence, that collection was apparently never issued. Sheet lacks colophon; while text indicates place of publication, there were two press offices operating in Lexington in 1803 (those of Samuel Walkup and John McMullin), hence the indeterminate attribution here.
