Benjamin Franklin’s classic book is full of timeless, thought-provoking insights that are as valuable today as they were over two centuries ago. With more than 700 pithy proverbs, Franklin lays out the rules everyone should live by and offers advice on such subjects as money, friendship, marriage, ethics, and human nature. They range from the famous “A penny saved is a penny earned” to the lesser-known but equally practical “When the wine enters, out goes the truth.” Other truisms like “Fish and visitors stink after three days” combine sharp wit with wisdom. Paul Volcker’s new introduction offers a fascinating perspective on Franklin’s beloved work.

From the Back Cover:

Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack was first published in 1733. Facing heavy competition from similar publications, Franklin took the unusual and controversial approach of injecting witty, unexpected entries between standard tables of tides, planetary motion, weather predictions and other facts. In the debut edition, faithfully reproduced here, he included under the heading Principal Kings of Europe, ""Poor Richard, an American Prince, without subjects, his wife being Viceroy over him, born October 23, 1684, age 49."" The Almanack went on to become the most popular book of it's kind in colonial America and was published annually for the next 25 years. This facsimile offers a unique and entertaining look at 18th century American life and humor.

From the Inside Flap:

Franklin's Autobiography is one of the most famous works in American literature. He started it as a private collection of anecdotes for his son, but soon it was transformed into a work of history, both personal and national, revealing Franklin as the man who, as Herman Melville said, possessed "deep worldly wisdom and polished Italian tact, gleaming under an air of Arcadian unaffectedness.
