Written in 1911, this is a comprehensive historical study of the history of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers, in the early American colonies. The history includes accounts of both the internal and external influence of this highly influential group, and aims to give an unbiased account of the historical facts. Includes a number of fold out maps.
The author, Rufus M. Jones, was a professor of philosophy at Harvard College, U.S.A, and was assisted by Isaac Sharpless, then president of the same organisation, and Amelia M. Gummere, author of 'The Quaker - A Study in costume'.
