The True Levellers Standard Advanced by Gerrard Winstanley
The True Levellers Standard Advanced is the 1649 manifesto of a proto-anarchist group  known as The Diggers, who occupied and cultivated waste land in Surrey as a protest against the accelerating enclosures and in an effort to feed some of the landless poor of England. This edition is set in a typeface appropriate to the period of its original publication, and is pleasingly pocket-sized for convenient transportation to the site of your next impromptu community garden.
