Benjamin Franklin`s writings represent a long career of literary, scientific, and political efforts over a lifetime which extended over nearly the entire eighteenth century. Franklin`s achievements range from inventing the lightning rod to publishing Poor Richard`s Almanack to signing the Declaration of Independence. This volume includes Franklin`s reflections on such diverse questions as philosophy and religion, social status, electricity, American national characteristics, war, and the status of women.
This edition provides a new text of the Autobiography, established with close reference to Franklin`s original manuscript. It also includes a new transcription of the 1726 journal, and several pieces which have recently been identified as Franklin`s own work.
