John Woolman, ed. by Sterling Olmsted, Conversations on the True Harmony of Mankind and How it May Be Promoted, Philadelphia, The Wider Quaker Fellowship, a program of the Friends World Committee for Consultation - Section of the Americas (FWCC), 1987, fourth printing (previously published in 1831, 1837 and 1922). Gray stapled paper covers with teal stripe, 8vo, 16 pp. This essay, written in third month, 1772, near the end of John Woolman's life, was not published in 'The Journal and Major Essays of John Woolman' (Oxford, 1971). The essay consists of conversations between a labourer, a rich man, and a thrifty landowner - with economic and class insights that could be applied today. Very Good: corners and edges lightly bumped, crisp, no markings.
