Evidence

"Farell Lee Bevan"s Peep of Day (759,000 copies in print by 1888) supplied him with the frame of a totalistic religious ideology: ""It was from these pages that I got my first idea of the moral foundations of the universe, was handed the first key with which to unlock the mysteries of the world in which I found myself. These little books served the purpose of an index or filing system; a framework of iron dogma, if you like, providing an orderly arrangement of the world and its history for the young mind, under two main categories, Good and Evil"". But Jones also attended a board school, where he found ""salvation"" in an old cupboard of books presented by the local MP. They were mainly volumes of voyages and natural history, ""which took a Rhymney boy away into the realms of wonder over the seas to the Malay Archipelago, to Abyssinia, to the sources of the Nile and the Albert Nyanza, to the curiosities of natural history, piloted by James Bruce, Samuel Baker and Frank Buckland""."
