Quaker Tracts

In 2003 while inventorying books in Special Collections' general collections, we came across a collection of 109 pamphlets bound together in a sixteen-volume set. Published primarily in England between 1692 and 1828, these pamphlets cover a wide variety of topics. While sermons and religious ideas are the primary focus, issues of immediate importance to the times, such as war and slavery, are also covered. Several of the pamphlets are by or about women.

Previously scholars could only find these pamphlets by searching for "quaker tracts" in Homer, USC's online catalog. Below are links to guides to these pamphlets. In addition Homer now includes entries for each pamphlet individually, and a search for "quaker tracts" will retrieve all sixteen volumes.
