"The Unknown World" [in:] The Gentlemen's Magazine, July 1743
London: E. Cave, jun, 1743. First edition. 8vo. Contemporary half calf and marbled boards. Light rubbing to covers. First edition. 8vo. Sterne's First Literary Appearance. Bound volume of 11 issues of The Gentlemen's Magazine, for January through November 1743. On page 376 of the July number is the young Laurence Sterne's poem "The Unknown World," probably his first literary work in print (Cross suggests that the poem may have been printed first in a York or London newspaper, but no examples have been found), and preceded only by a few political articles in York papers. In the same volume are five first appearances of works by Samuel Johnson: "Friendship" (p. 376), "The Young Author" (p. 378), "To Laura" (p. 378), a translation of a Horation Ode (p. 380), and a translation of Pope's verses on his Grotto at Twickenham (p. 550). Cross II, p. 266
