Years ago I ran across a curious book in a university library. It was entitled "Instructions for Right Spelling" and was purportedly authored by George Fox and Ellis Hook. I recently ran across a badly scanned copy on the internet and been looking at it again for the first time in probably 25 years.

Does anyone know anything about the provenance of this book? Is this really the George Fox? I'm curious to understand the background the intended audience purposes. And what may have occasioned its writing.

I didn't read it, but it can be found on Amazon. The full title is "Instructions for right spelling, and plain directions for reading and writing true English." Clicking on the Author lead to other books about George Fox.
