This edition gathers into one volume and in chronological order all of the known essays, epistles, and other works which Woolman intended for general readers, excluding the Journal. While some, but not all, of the essays have been published at various times, and while several of the epistles in the Texts have been incorporated into printed versions of the Journal, most of the ephemera in Texts 7 A, B, C, D, E, and F have never before been published and the children's primer in Text 10, as well as all eleven of the Appendix texts, have barely been known in modern times. By placing this body of Woolman's literary work in chronological order, the development of his thought in the context of his life experiences seems best revealed. The editor's introduction to each of the texts is intended to explain the context for each work in its historical moment....p. xxxv-xxxvi.
