1760 A Collection of Testimonies Concerning Several Ministers of the Gospel
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Leather Binding
The first edition of this collection of testimonies of Quaker, published because 'the yearly-meeting directed the collecting and printing of such of these testimonies as were judged most likely to be of general benefit; which collection is here presented to the reader'.
A lengthy index to the start of the work details the names of the one hundred and twenty-six friends whose testimonies are included in this volume.
