On the Last Epiphany,
or Christ Coming to Judgement
Written & Published 1763. TP1138
Age 10, Colston's School
We have to make do with the first printing of On the last Epiphany, or CHRIST coming to JUDGEMENT, as no manuscript is known to exist. It was printed in Felix Farley's Bristol Journal, on the 8th January 1763, when Chatterton was just 10 years old.
It was first claimed as Chatterton's work by William Tyson in 1837, and is accepted as such by Meyerstein. However, Donald Taylor lists it in 'Works of Doubtful Authenticity.'
