Baltimore, Md: Maryland Historical Society, 1952. 1st Edition Thus. 8vo. Very Good. Item #13313
16-page staple-bound pamphlet extremely scarce in commerce.
The pamphlet was published after Carroll's influential work first appeared in the Maryland Historical Magazine in December, 1952.
Carroll's research covers the early Quaker missionaries of Maryland thru the sect's expulsion from Virginia and migration up the Eastern Shore of Maryland to their stronghold in Talbot County.
George Fox, the founder of the Society of Friends and Quakerism, toured the American colonies from 1672-1674 and led several meetings during multiple visits to Talbot County and his contributions are covered here.
Extensively footnoted and an essential reference for any research on the Quakers of Maryland's Eastern Shore.
Yellow typographical wraps, tightly bound. Mild age toning to wraps with a touch of light soiling.
Overall a handsome edition of a tough-to-come-by work.
