. First Dublin edition. ppXVI,130 pp. Wanting the half title. Original blue wrappers, front wrapper almost detached. Bequest book-label of John Edward Southall to Newport and the odd discreet stamp. Anthony Pearson (1628-1670) was one of the most influential Quakers in the North of England, being a Justice of the Peave and a considerable land-owner. In 1655 he spent time visiting the various law-courts in London gathering information on tythes and the treatment of Quakers who refused to pay them. The present book was first published in 1657 and again in 1658 and 1659. It was five times reprinted in the eighteenth century with the addition of an appendix by Thomas Ellwood the quaker friend of John Milton whose influence suggested to Milton his 'Paradise Regained'. All these editions, except the present, came from the presses of the Quaker publishers Thomas Sowle and Luke Hind. An uncommon edition unknown to Sweet & Maxwell; No copies in BL or Bodley, and only 4 in North America. . . . . Books ship from the US and Ireland. Bookseller Inventory # KHS0020443
