The omission was partly to save space and partly because less interest attaches to books written before Winstanleys discovery of communism.I have printed the complete text of one of his religious tracts written before The New Law of Righteousnes, in which he first announced his communism. In the Appendix I have reprinted several pamphlets or broadside connected with the Digger Movement which were pretty certainly not written by Winstanley, though some of them have been attributed to him. -- from the Preface
