Mary Ann Kelty (1789-1873) was a teacher and author in England who appears to have discovered the writings of early Friends later in her life. Though she plainly shows herself to be in perfect accord with the principles and practices of the primitive Quakers, she lived in a time of great declension from the original purity and power in the Society, and probably for that reason, never formally joined with them in membership (though she is said to have frequently attended the Friends’ meeting house at Peckham). Her book “The Lives and Persecutions of the Primitive Quakers” is a very well-written, short history of the early Society of Friends, highlighting the most noteworthy figures and remarkable events of that time.

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
