Published: 1774


The Journal of John Woolman is an autobiography by John Woolman (1720-1772) which was published posthumously in 1774 by Joseph Crukshank, a Philadelphia Quaker printer.


Woolman's journal is one of the longest continually published books in North America since it has never been out of print.


The journal is also the second work included in Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf, now known as the Harvard Classics. It was one of three works included in Volume 1 along with Benjamin Franklin's autobiography and William Penn's "Some Fruits of Solitude in Reflections and Maxims."
