The Quaker Bibliographic World of
Francis Daniel Pastorius'
What Quaker tracts and treatises were available in the Delaware Valley in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century? How did the published Quaker writings in early Pennsylvania compare in number and subject matter with the universe of published Quaker writings? What do their nature and content suggest about the literary, religious, political, and legal interests of early Pennsylvanians? One wishing to explore the nature of print culture in colonial America is interested in the answers.(1)
Francis Daniel Pastorius, who emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1683, offers assistance in developing answers to those questions. Pastorius' life touched great events in Europe and America. Born in 1651 in Sommerhausen, Germany, he was the son of a magistrate of that city. From 1668 to 1676 he was educated in law at the University of Altdorf, interspersed with time at the Universities of Jena, Regensburg, Strassburg, and perhaps Basal. Upon graduation from Altdorf in 1676, he began practicing law in Windsheim. Because of his interest in the Pietist movement centered around Frankfurt, he moved there in 1678.(2) When the Frankfurt Pietists formed the Frankfurt Land Company to purchase land and settle Pennsylvania, Pastorius felt "a desire in [his] Soul to continue in their Society, and with them to lead a quiet, godly and honest life."(3) He emigrated to Pennsylvania in the spring of 1683 and took on important roles in Pennsylvania, serving as a justice of the peace for Philadelphia County in 1684, 1685, and 1693, as a member of the General Assembly in 1687 and 1691, a court clerk in Philadelphia County from 1696 to 1701, and a school teacher for many years.(4)
Pastorius also wrote and published extensively. His letters home, detailing the benefits of life in Pennsylvania, were published in 1701 in Frankfurt; a primer used by students in his school was published in 1698; a pamphlet on Pennsylvania politics was published in 1697.(5) Other writings, including a protest against slavery, treatises on law, medicine, and agriculture, a volume of poetry, and several other volumes that have since been lost, remained unpublished, as did his commonplace book, which he called his "Hive or Bee Stock." Historians call it the Bee Hive.(6)
The Bee Hive, which is now in the rare book room of the University of Pennsylvania's Van Pelt Library, has shed substantial light on Pastorius' thinking.(7) He began writing the Bee Hive in 1696 and seems to have added to it with some frequency until near his death in the winter of 1719-20. The Bee Hive, which runs to several hundred folio pages, contains nearly four hundred stanzas of poetry; hundreds of aphorisms, largely from the Bible; a dictionary with several hundred entries defining terms of religion, law, and natural science, among others; and more than two thousand individual entries--"honey combs"--of Pastorius' thought. One interested in topics such as Quakers, atheism, piety, usury, debt, justice, magistrates, lawyers, equity, equality, freeholder, property, tyranny, nobility, politick, rebellion, bigamy, polygamy, or hundreds of other topics, can look under those headings in the Bee Hive and find nuggets of Pastorius' thought, sometimes in verse. Sometimes the thoughts are original; more often they are collected from other writers. In the latter cases, Pastorius cites the authors from whom he took the ideas.
Pastorius' meticulous recording of the authors from whom he drew ideas makes the Bee Hive useful for one interested in the range of books available in early Pennsylvania. The Bee Hive includes a bibliography that contains the author and title of every book, treatise, pamphlet, and broadside drawn upon in its compilation, as well as a number of other books Pastorius apparently consulted but did not use in the Bee Hive. When Pastorius drew upon a work for ideas in the Bee Hive he marked it with an asterisk in the bibliography. His primary motivation for compiling the bibliography was to guide his sons, John and Henry, in their reading. A poem addressed to them introduced the bibliography:
At leasure hours and Candle-light,
When others play, or lose their Sight,
Read ye these Books I here have set,
Or other good ones you can get.
Another motivating factor was Pastorius' desire to promote knowledge about the works. In the introduction to the bibliography, he wrote that he recorded the "authors out of which this . . . Hive is collected" because "ingenuum est fateri per quos profeceris." The phrase, which may be translated as "true genius is to acknowledge those through whom you have advanced," also appeared on the title page of his legal treatise, The Young Country Clerk's Collection, itself a compilation of forms.(8) Pastorius' repeated use of the phrase suggests a concern for pointing readers towards works that helped to form his ideas.
One wonders how Pastorius obtained the books on such a lengthy list. In some cases he owned the works he cited.(9) In most instances, however, he borrowed them. Beside the entry for Robert L'Strange's edition of Seneca's Morals, for example, Pastorius wrote "being lent to me but for a short time, I digested only the preface, Post-script and Afterthought thereof." The lending library established by the Philadelphia monthly meeting in 1682 and the pamphlet war between George Keith's supporters and his opponents suggest that there was active circulation and discussion of books.(10) The full Bee Hive bibliography includes about one thousand entries.(11) Pastorius divided it into books written by Quakers and by non-Quakers. The Appendix to this Note prints the list of books by Quakers; it marks with an asterisk those works that Pastorius marked in his bibliography as those that he had drawn upon.(12)
Pastorius' books have attracted the attention of several historians over the past ninety years. When Professor Michael Learned published his biography of Pastorius in 1908, he included a list of the books Pastorius owned (rather than consulted). The list, which includes a substantial number of books printed in Europe, spans a wide array of topics, from religion and horticulture, through law and politics. Recently, Lyman W. Riley transcribed and provided modern bibliographic references for the publications cited by Pastorius in the Bee Hive.(13) The present project is the first printed bibliography of Pastorius' Quaker books.

Pastorius' list of Quaker works, which contains nearly four hundred entries, is exciting for several reasons. First, it identifies a wide variety of Quaker writings that were present in early Pennsylvania. Especially for people who were born in Pennsylvania, the books provided a substitute for memories of life in England. In light of Richard Vann's hypothesis that Quakerism was "made in America"--that emigrants from Europe were less important in developing the character of American Quakerism than were those born in America--the printed recollections of sufferings and the well-articulated defenses of Quaker thought probably helped to sustain the Quaker understanding of the world--to sustain, as Perry Miller might have said, the Quaker cosmology.(14)
Second, the bibliography allows comparison of the books readily available in Pennsylvania with the universe of Quaker publications. Given Pastorius' attempts at comprehensiveness, the list is suggestive of the total body of Quaker works that were readily available in early Pennsylvania and thus gives an idea of which Quaker works helped to shape the understanding of Quaker doctrine and which ones, because they did not exist in early Pennsylvania, could not exercise direct influence. Hugh Barbour and Arthur Roberts report that there were 3,759 published Quaker writings before 1700; Pastorius' 271 entries for works written before 1700 thus represent about seven percent of the corpus of Quaker publications to that time.(15) Like Quaker writings generally, almost all works in Pastorius' list were printed in London. One was printed before 1652; more than one-third (143) of the 379 works in the bibliography were printed from 1656 to 1664, with the remainder distributed rather evenly until 1703, when the numbers drop off. The latest one was printed in 1717. Table 1 shows the distribution of dates of publication. The list testifies to a "unified tranatlantic Quaker culture" between Pennsylvania and England in the late seventeenth century.(16)
What, then, of the contents of Pastorius' bibliography? The books may be divided into several broad categories. There are extended treatises recording the lives and writings of such leaders as George Fox, William Penn, Edward Burrough, Josiah Coale, Richard Hubberthorne, Isaac Penington, and James Naylor. Those weighty volumes articulated the major themes of Quakerism and might serve to instill a quiet, introspective Pietism and a concern for the abuses suffered by Quakers in England. Pastorius was particularly fond of George Fox's Journal, the most heavily cited volume in the Bee Hive other than the Bible. William Penn's No Cross, No Crown, which itself collected writings from antiquity through modern times to show the prevalence of Quaker ideas throughout history, also drew substantial attention in the Bee Hive. Pastorius repeatedly cited examples of piety from No Cross, No Crown. The collected works of Hubberthorne, Penington, and Burrough also were important, although much less frequently cited than the works of Penn and Fox.
Other volumes appearing in the list dealt with specific issues. Many were concerned with the English legal system's treatment of Quakers. There were the records of suffering that was so prominent a part of Quaker life in the seventeenth century, such as George Whitehead's The Case of the Suffering People of God and William Penn's Continued Cry of the Oppressed for Justice.(17) There were many short, similar volumes by lesser known Quakers.(18) Other volumes recorded sufferings in New England, including George Bishop's New England Judged by the Spirit of the Lord and the anonymous A Brief Narrative of the Sufferings of the People Called Quakers who were put to Death at Boston in New England.(19) Penn's pamphlet describing his 1670 trial resonated particularly well with Pastorius. From it he recorded the ideas that "People should have a share in the making of their own Laws and likewise in the judicatory Power to apply these laws made."(20)
The Quaker interest in religious freedom and law reform appeared in other volumes in Pastorius' list that were addressed to the King, magistrates, and merchants. The works urged fairer treatment, suggesting that magistrates enforce the laws properly without introducing their own personal biases, that magistrates not enforce the harsh criminal law too rigorously, and that merchants not seek profit to the exclusion of all other goals.(21) Such precatory pamphlets may have proved influential in Pennsylvania, where Quakers were in a position to put their ideas about government into practice.
George Fox's Journal, which detailed both his own sufferings and those he witnessed at the hands of capricious magistrates, was probably the most graphic and important portrayal of the inequities of the English criminal justice system for early Pennsylvanians. Another important source of information for Pastorius on that issue was George Fox's An Instruction to Judges and Magistrates. Fox's forty-page pamphlet critiqued the inequities of the English legal system. Fox argued against the death penalty for mere property crimes and urged magistrates to act as friends to the poor. Pastorius adopted Fox's statement that "Job was a judge . . . he was legs to the lame, eyes to the blind, a help to the helpless."(22)
Penn's Fruits of Solitude, a book of maxims written while Penn was imprisoned in the Tower of London, appealed to Pastorius' taste for aphorism. The Fruits of Solitude contained advice on political and legal issues as well as religious ones and thus connected Quaker religious ideas to government, which Pastorius drew from generously. "Do not ask for what will not ruin thee to [not] obtain" he wrote in the debt entry.(23)
Some pamphlets were directed against specific laws. The Conventicle Act was used freely to prosecute Quakers. Some writers proclaimed that the law was not intended to apply to Quakers; others argued that Quaker meetings were not conventicles.(24) Similarly, there were several pamphlets opposing tithes, including Francis Howgill's The Great Case of the Tythes and the anonymous The Ancient Testimony of the Primitive Christians . . . Revived Against Tythes.(25)
Most of the entries dealt with issues of religious doctrine than with outward government. Here again they took various forms. Some were affirming ones urging Pietism and outlining Quaker beliefs, such as Robert Barclay's Truth Triumphant through Spiritual Warfare, a collection of his writings covering the broad expanse of Quaker beliefs. George Fox's Journal recounted not only his sufferings in the English criminal justice system; it also recounted his conversion to the Light and the ways he maintained his fervor. There are collections of writings of Quakerism's major figures, including Fox's Letters, Penn's Journal and the writings of such important figures as James Naylor and Stephen Crisp. There were also individual tracts devoted to explaining Quaker principles, such as Edward Burrough's A Declaration to all the World of Our Faith and What We Believe. Likewise, there were explanations of doctrine from George Fox, such as The Pearl Found in England and The Papists Strength, Principles, and Doctrines . . . Answered and Confuted, and from other leaders, such as William Penn's 1696 Christian Quaker.(26)
The most popular of the writings designed to induce pietism appeared in the list. John Thompson's often-reprinted Piety Promoted, which collected the dying sayings of numerous Quakers illustrates the role that individual experience and testimony played in Quakerism.(27) Pastorius' list included many individual testimonies of Quakers, such as James Naylor's Milk for Babes and Meat for Strong Men . . . being the Breathings of the Spirit Through His Servant James Naylor.(28) Other tracts in the list defended Quaker doctrine, such as Elizabeth Bathhurst's Truth's Vindication, or A Gentle Stroke to Wipe Off the Foul Aspersions . . . Cast Upon the People of God Called Quakers.(29)
The Quakers' own political and ecclesiastical dispute in Pennsylvania, the controversy over George Keith that racked the colony beginning in 1691, generated a number of tracts. They show, like so much of Quaker writings, the combined elements of law, politics and religion. Pastorius has access to the State of the Case, a tract written by Samuel Jennings, one of the judges who presided over the defamation trial of George Keith, Thomas Budd, Peter Boss and William Bradford, which turned the controversy into a legal dispute as well as a religious and political one.(30) Pastorius also cited five tracts by Caleb Pusey, including Satan's Harbinger Detected, Pusey's response to Daniel Leeds, a Keith supporter, which ran to more than 100 pages.(31)
One must be wary when using lists of books as a proxy for ideas. Just because a book appeared in a person's library does not mean that the owner supported, believed, or had even read its contents. Nor can one know how a reader interpreted a book's contents when it was read. Pastorius' list, when used in conjunction with the Bee Hive entries, suggests the ideas that at least one reader took away from the texts and may, therefore, mitigate some of the problems of interpretation posed by a bare bibliography. In the case of Henry Clark's Here is True Magistracy Described, for example, Pastorius cited Clark's pamphlet in his Bee Hive entry on magistrates as a source of ideas about magistrates. Pastorius neglected to mention, however--and in the same Bee Hive entry actually opposed--the main idea of Clark's pamphlet, that Quakers should not use the legal system.(32) One can see in the Bee Hive entries the material Pastorius thought useful in the books. The common theme of Quaker writings suggest--and his Bee Hive entries confirm--that they were cited because he supported in general the position of the authors.

Some studies have shown the extent of European ideas--particularly religious ideas--in early Pennsylvania.(33) Imaginative monographs such as Frederick B. Tolles' Meeting House and Counting House, J. William Frost's The Quaker Family in Colonial America, and more recently, Sally Schwartz's A Mixed Multitude, all explored the vibrant ideas collected from Europe and transplanted to the Delaware Valley.(34) Much of the recent scholarship on early Pennsylvania explores the ideas of the colonists, derived from study of the treatises written by the colonists or by study of the books in their libraries. Edwin Wolf's 1988 book on colonial Philadelphia, for instance, has added substantial dimension to our understanding of the reading interests of Philadelphians. Tolles, Frost, and Wolf together show that Quakers read (and wrote) widely and in diverse areas, from religion to law to politics to horticulture.(35) Pastorius' list contributes to that understanding. While Professor Frost has pointed out that American Quakers by the middle of the eighteenth century often lacked access to important seventeenth-century Quaker authors, such as George Fox, William Penn, and Issac Penington, Pastorius' list suggests that at least at the beginning of the eighteenth century there was a well-developed Quaker book culture in the Philadelphia area.(36)
Some treatises in Pastorius' list were great in size as well as in the knowledge that they might impart. The collected works of Edward Burrough and Issac Penington each ran to more than eight hundred pages. But what of the median size of the writings? Nearly half (156) were thirty pages or less in length. They remind us that much of the Quaker culture was developed by people writing their thoughts in tracts that could be produced quickly and inexpensively and then carried to the far reaches of Quaker settlement. They also remind us that Quakerism was a religion that gained momentum not by the power of "theological tenets" but by people "recognizing the moral actions of Quakers."(37) The several hundred Quaker publications circulating in early Pennsylvania are worthy of study because of what they teach about the ideas of the people who brought them to the Delaware Valley and of the people who had access to them.

Pastorius was probably not thinking about
Quaker authors when he likened a desire for glory and honor with "the ambition of
Authors, who aspire to make their names celebrious by printing books, we dare not properly
call pamphlets, because they are come forth in folio sundry tomes." Entry 37,

1. For introductions to the role of printed media in early America, see David Hall, Cultures of Print: Essays in the History of the Book (Amherst, 1996); Mary Sarah Bilder, "The Lost Lawyer: Legal Literacy and Legal Development in Rhode Island, 1650-1700" (unpublished manuscript) (proposing the concept of legal literacy).
2. Two studies detail Pastorius' life particularly well. See Michael Learned, The Life of Francis Daniel Pastorius (Philadelphia, 1908); John David Weaver, "Francis Daniel Pastorius (1651-c.1720): Early Life in Germany with Glimpses of His Removal to Pennsylvania," (Ph.D. diss., University of California, Davis, 1985).
3. Francis Daniel Pastorius, "Bee Stock or Hive," Ms. Am. 1, Special Collections, Van Pelt Library, University of Pennsylvania, 227 (hereinafter, Bee Hive).
4. See Marianne S. Wokeck, "Francis Daniel Pastorius," Craig S. Horle and Marianne S. Wokeck, eds., Biographical Dictionary of Pennsylvania Legislators, 1682-1700 (Philadelphia, 1991), 586-90.
5. Pastorius' published writings are Four Boasting Disputers of this World Briefly Rebuked (New York, 1697); A New Primer (New York, 1698); Umständige Geographische Beschreibung (Frankfurt, 1701); Vier Kleine Doch Ungemeine Büchen (Germantown, 1690); Disputatio inauguralis de rasure documentorum . . . (Altdorf, 1676).
6. For a complete account of Pastorius' writings, see Weaver, "Francis Daniel Pastorius," 466-71; Wokeck, "Francis Daniel Pastorius," 590 (calling manuscript the "Bee Hive").
7. Pastorius, "Bee Hive." Three monographs have extensively mined Pastorius' writings, particularly the Bee Hive. See Learned, Life of Pastorius; DeElla Victoria Tomms, "The Literary and Cultural Background of Francis Daniel Pastorius" (Ph.D. diss., Northwestern University, 1958); Weaver, "Francis Daniel Pastorius."
8. "Bee Hive," 55; Francis Daniel Pastorius, "The Young Country Clerk's Collection," Ms. Am. 63, Special Collections, Van Pelt Library, University of Pennsylvania, title page.
9. See Learned, Life of Pastorius, 287-93 (listing books that Pastorius owned).
10. "Bee Hive," 63 (mentioning borrowing Roger L'Estrange, Seneca's Morals by way of Abstract (London, 6th. ed 1693)); J. William Frost, The Quaker Family in Colonial America (New York, 1973) 11 (discussing Quaker lending libraries); J. William Frost, "Unlikely Controversialists: Caleb Pusey and George Keith," Quaker History 64 (1976), 16-32 (discussing pamphlets printed in reaction to Keithian Controversy); Edwin Wolf, The Book Culture of a Colonial American City (Oxford, 1988) (documenting the existence of a wide variety of books in early Philadelphia). See also Toms, "Intellectual and Literary Background of Pastorius," 150, 152-54 (suggesting that Pastorius borrowed heavily from the libraries of Samuel Carpenter, James Logan, Isaac Norris, William Penn, Robert Preston, Griffith Owen, and others).
11. The majority of the bibliography appears in the "Bee Hive" at pages 51-67; it is supplemented, at pages 375-76 and 380-81. The entire bibliography lists 1022 books. See Lyman W. Riley, "Books from the 'Bee Hive' Manuscript of Francis Daniel Pastorius," Quaker History 81 (1994), 116.
12. The list of Quaker books appears at pages 51-55 and in a supplement, at pages 375-76, of the Bee Hive. The supplement, compiled after Pastorius' initial list, duplicates some of the citations in the main bibliography. He provided much sparser bibliographic information for books in the supplement than he did for books in the main bibliography. Moreover, although the supplement purports to catalog books written by Quakers, it includes some works written by non-Quakers, such as Samuel Puffendorf. Because the supplement was not central to Pastorius' initial plan and was compiled later than most of the Bee Hive, this essay omits references to books appearing only in the supplement. Books cited in both the main bibliography and the supplement are included.
13. See Learned, Life of Pastorius, 287-93; Riley, "Books from the 'Bee Hive' Manuscript," 116-29 (describing Riley's transcription of Pastorius' bibliography, which is available at the libraries of Haverford College and the University of Pennsylvania). Victoria Toms also made extensive use of Pastorius' references to books in her dissertation. See Toms, "Intellectual and Literary Background of Pastorius," 139-98. See also Mildred N. Hirsch & Dorothy G. Harris, "From the Library of Pastorius," Bulletin of the Friends Historical Association 42 (1953), 76-84 (describing pamphlets in Pastorius' library).
14. See Richard Vann, "Quakerism: Made in America?" in World of William Penn, 157-72; David Korbin, "The Saving Remnant: Intellectual Sources of Change and Decline in Colonial Quakerism, 1690-1810" (Ph.D. diss., University of Pennsylvania, 1968), 306 (employing phrase "Quaker cosmology" in describing shifting ideas in eighteenth century and using published works to recover that cosmology); Perry Miller, Errand into the Wilderness (Cambridge, 1956), 99 (discussing "religious cosmology" of seventeenth-century Virginia). David Hall has provided a suggestive discussion of ways in which the abundant religious literature in New England shaped the development of religious consciousness. See David Hall, "The World of Print and Collective Mentality in Seventeenth-Century New England," in John Higham and Paul Conklin, eds., New Directions in American Intellectual History (Baltimore, 1979), 166-80.

On the repercussions of the controversy, see Jon Butler, "The Records of the First 'America' Denomination: The Keithians of Pennsylvania, 1694-1700," Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography 120 (1996), 89-91.
31. See Caleb Pusey, Satan's Harbinger Encountered (Philadelphia, 1700).
32. In the same entry on Magistrates where Pastorius cited Clark's pamphlet, he cited Caleb Pusey's Satan's Harbinger (Philadelphia, 1698), 62-63 to show that "It never was against our Principles to be concerned in outward government." Magistrates Entry, "Bee Hive." For a further exploration of Pastorius' legal ideas and the treatises he used, see Alfred L. Brophy, "'Ingenium est Fateri per quos profeceris': Francis Daniel Pastorius' Young Country Clerk's Collection and Anglo-American Legal Literature, 1682-1716," University of Chicago Law School Roundtable 3 (1996), 637, 647,-48, 652-65.
33. See, e.g., Elizabeth W. Fisher, "'Prophesies and Revelations': German Cabbalists in Early Pennsylvania," Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography 109 (1985), 299-333. Professor Fisher's reconstruction of the ideas of the early German settlers utilizes the writings of a few of the Pietist leaders in Pennsylvania with insightful analysis of what is known about Pietism as it existed in Germany. Such a combination leads to provocative speculation about the ideas of the common people. See Jon Butler, "Religion, Astrology, and the Early American Religious Heritage, 1600-1760," American Historical Review 84 (April 1979), 317-46; Bernard Bailyn, The Peopling of British North America (New York, 1986), 123-26.

35. See Wolf, Book Culture of a Colonial American City; Tolles, Meeting House, 161-204; Frost, Quaker Family, 6, 30-45, 99-100; Edwin Wolf, The Library of James Logan (Philadelphia, 1968). The best of the recent scholarship combines quantitative study of court and tax records with analyses of the ideas of early Pennsylvanians. For example, William Offutt's Of "Good Laws" and "Good Men": Society and Law in the Delaware Valley, 1680-1710 (Champaign-Urbana, Ill., 1995), has generated insights into the nature of law by combining detailed quantitative study of litigants with examination of Quaker writings on justice.
