I recently noticed that there are no works by George Fox (1624-1691) in the LibriVox catalogue. He was certainly one of the most important Christian thinkers and the founder of Quakerism, a very unique interpretation of Christianity.

George Fox's Journal (1903) by George Fox

George Fox, an Autobiography (1903) by George Fox, Rufus Matthew Jones
http://www.archive.org/details/georgefoxanauto01jonegoog

Passages from the life and writings of George Fox, taken from his Journal. With the desire on the part of the editor to give a fair representation of his character and religious views, and to lead the reader to seek a fuller acquaintance with them ([189-?])

Still no works of Fox's recorded, but two are available at Project Gutenberg:

George Fox: An Autobiography
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/43031

About 150,000 words and anyone taking this on would have to decide what to do about the footnotes. There are a lot of them and they generally are pretty meaty in terms of additional information but there would be a lot of stopping and starting of the main text.


Gleanings from the Works of George Fox by George Fox and Dorothy Richardson
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/57926

Much more manageable project - book was about 110 pages long. It's a collection of excerpts from Fox's writings arranged thematically, looks like a fairly easy solo or group project and a good way to finally get some Fox on Librivox (hey, a rhyme!)
