Product Description

In 1693 William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, published Some Fruits of Solitude as "an enchiridion," or life manual. The book is quiet and pensive, filled with the power of Penn's wisdom through his bright and simple maxims. Though written over three hundred years ago, Penn's work offers timeless advice on such topics as friendship, education, religion, and family.

    Penn has some relevant things to say, but unfortunately this version (Applewood) is in the original language -- that is, it's 300 years old. If you want something more readable (and understandable), check out a recently published edition by Herald Press (ISBN: 0836192052, March 2003; Eric Taylor, Editor). Taylor has done a great job of modernized the text without dumbing it down. There's a great historical introduction, a bunch of endnotes, and More Fruits of Solitude which the Applewood version does not include. For my money, the Taylor version is the better choice.
