What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Leather Binding

Complete in two volumes.

The fourth edition of this work.

ESTC citation number T121897.

An important history on the Quakers, a work on which the author spent twenty-five years researching and writing. This work quickly became an authority on the subject after it's publication, and still remains so today.

This is an early history, the Quakers beginning as a proto-evangelical Christian movement in the mid seventeenth century in England.

By Willem Sewel, a Dutch Quaker historian, who first published this work in Dutch in 1717. Sewel also translated this work into English.

Condition

In a full marbled calf binding. Externally, spines are rubbed with some light surface cracks. Minor bumping to the spines and extremities, resulting in a little lifting to the head of the spines. Light marks to the boards. Rubbing to the rear joint of Volume I, resulting in a little loss. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are lightly age-toned and clean with a few odd spots only.

Very Good
