William Law and Eighteenth Century Quakerism

£24.99

Product description

FIRST EDITION: Dark blue cloth cover with gilt titles on the spine, in very good condition. The dust jacket is protected with glassine but the front cover is separated from the rest and the edges of all of it are nibbled, it is sunned on the spine and on other areas of the back and spine. The book was published in 1927 by George Allen & Unwin of London. There is a Foyles bookshop sticker inside the front cover and an inscription on the fep. There is some foxing throughout the book. 'William Law has been called, not unreasonably, the greatest of our English prose mystics. No detailed study of him has been published since Overton's biography (1881), which the present work supplements and to some extent corrects. While the student of theology will here find much food for meditation, the general reader may well be more interested in the biographical and psychological side of the volume, in the three-cornered drama which its earlier sections present between the author of the "Serious Call", the poet Byron, and the future "minister", Fanny Henshaw, whose career admirably illustrates both the strength and the weakness of comntemporary Quakerism.'
