“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”

― Benjamin Franklin

 

Benjamin Franklin’s famous ‘Autobiography’. This book is often considered Franklin’s best-known book and is an important part of Americana. Originally known as ‘Memoirs’ by Franklin himself, ‘Autobiography’ covers each aspect of Franklin’s life including his studies in French, various letters he wrote while in Paris, the progress of his philosophies and experiments on electricity.

 

John Bigelow’s 1868 edition of Franklin’s “Autobiography” is, according to Ford,

“not only the first appearance of the autobiography from Franklin’s own copy, but also the first publication in English of the four parts, and the first publication of the very important ‘outline’ autobiography.”
