An Abstract of the Sufferings of the People call'd Quakers

£485.00

Product description

This is a detailed record of the proceedings taken against Quakers throughout England between 1650 and 1666. Volume I, 575pp, pub. in 1783, covers the years1650 to 1660. It includes a ten-page preface. Volumes II and III, both pub. in 1738, cover the years 1660 to 1666. Vol. II, 522pp, includes a 30-page preface. Volume III has 546pp. The first and third volumes each contain a fold-out 'Account of the sufferings in the First (Second and Third) Volumes'. These are both torn and one has been repaired with sellotape. All 3 volumes have an index. The brown leather bindings appear to be original. Covers are decorated with a black stamped design and spines have 5 raised cords. Hand-written cloth title labels have been added to the spines since they were bound, and there is a small circular label at the base of each spine inscribed with the numbers 12, 13 and 14. These relate to the labels inside each cover from the Library of the Friends Meeting House in Sale, Manchester, and seem to show that the books were very early acquisitions by that library. The leather bindings are rubbed and marked as would be expected in books of this age, with damage to the top and base of the spines. Vols I and III are cracked at the front spine, and the flyleaf of vol I is almost detached, but otherwise the books are tightly bound. Pages are clean and bright with only the occasional mark.
