In the category of ancient wills, the reader will find the oldest written will, dated at 2550 B.C., as well as wills of such personages as Plato and Aristotle. Other categories in the collection include: wills in fiction and poetry; curious wills; testamentary and kindred miscellany; wills of famous foreigners, such as Napoleon and William Shakespeare; and wills of famous Americans, such as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.
