This volume brings together three journals of George Fox (1624-1691) the founder of the Religious Society of Friends. It was edited by Norman Penny and first published in 1925 to mark the tercentenary of Fox's birth. The Short Journal, dictated by Fox during his detention in Lancaster prison (1663-1664), records Fox's missionary wanderings and the persecutions he faced between 1648 and 1663. The Itinerary Journal, compiled by John Field, contains an account of Fox's missionary work, church organisational activities and family life from 1681 to his death in 1691. The Haistwell Diary, written by Fox's companion Edward Haistwell, records Fox's activities between 1677 and 1679, including his missionary journey across the length of England and his missionary voyages to Holland and North Germany. The collection is a key source for those studying Fox's life and thought or the history and origins of the Quaker movement.
