        Some Fruits of Solitude, in Reflections and Maxims Relating to the Conduct of Human Life.

      2 volumes in one, 12mo, contemporary calf, 1, [[14], 158, [6], 1, [6], 117 pp. Calf with moderate wear, and somewhat weak hinges, lacks front endpapers, moderate dampstaining in the second book, index leaf misbound, first page after volume one repaired with some loss of text, final leaf defective with loss of text at the top of the page, early owner's inscription on rear face papers; still a very decent copy. William Penn (1644-1718) was born in London, and in 1681 would make history by founding the colony of Pennsylvania. He started this enterprise with good intentions and considerable resources, and even managed to cultivate good relations with Native Americana in the area. However, by 1685 the colony became a financial failure for Penn, and his vision for an "ideal society" ended. Penn, a Quaker, had his share of squabbles with other religious leaders, but he was fortunate enough to have the means to publish his opinions. The present title was a popular work, and published in several editions. It contains a lot of useful information that presents Penn's views on life. He tells us that diet is important to a balanced life and recommends "eat therefore to live, and do not live to eat." He also tells us that "strong liquors" are not a bad thing if used in moderation. He also felt having good friends was very important, and advises a person to choose them like a wife, "till death separate you." ANB.
