George Fox(1624-1691) founder of the Society of Friends. "Born in Leicestershire and apprenticed to a shoemaker, he apparently had no formal schooling. In 1643 he parted from family and friends and traveled in search of enlightenment. After long painful struggles he came in 1646 to rely on the `Inner Light of the Living Christ.' He forsook church attendance, dismissed contemporary religious controversies as trivial, and in 1647 began to preach that truth is to be found in God's voice speaking to the soul--hence, `Friends of Truth' later abbreviated to `Friends.' In 1649 he was jailed for interrupting a Nottingham church service with an impassioned appeal from the Scriptures to the Holy Spirit as the authority and guide. In 1650 at Derby he was imprisoned as a blasphemer, and there a judge nicknamed the `Quakers,' after Fox had exhorted the magistrates to 'tremble at the word of the Lord.' ...Fox spent six years in different prisons, sometimes under terrible conditions. He campaigned against the latter and against other social evils... His famous journal was published posthumously in 1694."--Douglas: The New Int'l Dict. of the Christian Church, pp.383-384. We offer the 1694 First Edition of his Journal, indispensable for the study of his life and the early days of the Quakers.

Provenance, the following two inscriptions written on leaf A1 and bottom of p.632. 3rd inscription on leaf A1 only. Leaf A1 of Penn's Preface has the following in old pen: "Matthew [E]stes Book Bou[ght] of Thomas Northcott & George Yard, Lombard Street, London the 9th of 3rd Month 169[5] 24,-6 SIH." "Samuel Pope his Book Bougt of Hannah Estes of Salem(?) the 7th of ye 1c 1727/8 Cost 14." "Descended Aln____ [missing words] [Po]pe y. 3 in a tight Line unto 1763."

This is the true First Edition with the original printing of pages 309 and 441 to which corrections were made and substituted in many copies. See Joseph Smith: A Descriptive Catalogue of Friends' Books, Vol. I, p.691.

Left an orphan at age 5 he grew up under the care of the Puritan vicar of Wotton-under-Edge. He enrolled at Magadalen Hall, Oxford, in 1626 with a view to taking orders, but soon devoted himself to the law. He sought to maintain neutrality during the Civil War, but after the execution of Charles I, he threw in with the Commonwealth. However, he took an active part in the restoration of Charles II; "At the time of the Savoy Conf. he wished to see to see the Presbyterians comprehended in the Church, and later showed his sympathy for dissenters by his lenient administration of the Conventicle Acts... He was on intimate terms with Baxter, Stillingfleet, and other celebrated divines. Hale's rank as a lawyer and judge, and as a Christian is of the highest."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl., V:120. His Contemplations were often reprinted. John Wesley included it in his Christian Library (vol. 17). Extracts from his Contemplations are here reprinted by the Quakers.
