The Quakers In The American Colonies by Rufus M. Jones

WAS £30.00 £29.99

Product description

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'.

This is an ex-library edition with a sticker on the inside cover from the previous owner, and is in good condition. There is some small signs of wear to the spine and binding, and slight discolouration to the edges of the pages due to dust.
