As New in As New jacket. First printing. 394 pp. with notes, photographs and illustrations throughout. In examining some of the material possessions of the Quaker (Society of Friends) families during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, the contributors to this volume drew on methods of art, social, religious and public histories as well as folklorists, to explore how Friends during this period reconciled their material lives with their belief in the value of simplicity. In earlier times, they manufactures, bought and used such goods as clothing, furniture and buildings, and this life revealed a much more complicated picture than that of a simple people with simple tastes. Scarce title.
