Benjamin Franklin

Publisher: Houghton-Mifflin
ISBN/ASIN: B004UMK6EY

Description:
This is 1889 biography of Benjamin Franklin. The first five chapters of the Autobiography were composed in England in 1771, continued in 1784-5, and again in 1788, at which date he brought it down to 1757. After a most extraordinary series of adventures, the original form of the manuscript was finally printed by Mr. John Bigelow, and is here reproduced in recognition of its value as a picture of one of the most notable personalities of Colonial times, and of its acknowledged rank as one of the great autobiographies of the world.
