About this Item

FRANKLIN, Benjamin. M. T. Cicero's Cato Major, or Discourse on Old Age. Addressed to Titus Pomponicus Atticus. With Explanatory Notes. London: Printed for Fielding and Walker, 1778. 1st English ed. [4],163pp. Portrait frontis. of Benjamin Franklin. Full red morocco, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, rebacked in matching style with gilt-decorated raised spine bands, red morocco spine label, silk bookmark, T.e.g. Scattered faint foxing, else very good or better. Ford 48. "[I]t contains Franklin's 'The Printer to the Reader,' but also . in later editions the authorship has been improperly ascribed to [Franklin], although in his preface he distinctly states the translation and notes to be the work of James Logan. . In this edition Franklin's preface is so altered, as to make it appear that he was the translator. It was a publisher's trick to sell the book, but led Mr. Duane, when publishing Franklin's writings in 1808, to include it among them (iv, 250), and also to issue a separate edition.".
