La miscellanea prende in esame i molteplici interessi e le attività del mercante quacchero Benjamin Furly (1636-1714). Collezionista di libri, difensore della libertà religiosa, politico radicale, Furly fu al centro di una rete di relazioni che includeva John Locke, Anthony Ashley Cooper, Pierre Bayle, William Penn e John Toland. Sono inoltre pubblicati, per la prima volta, alcuni testi relativi alla celebre «hat controversy» in cui Furly prese le difese del quacchero radicale John Perrot.
