Rebacked with orig. spine preserved, else a very good copy in contemporary calf with gilt-lettered red spine label. HOWES F-323. Franklin's most famous work is his Autobiography. It first appeared, translated into French, in Paris, 1791. The Private Life (London,1793) was the first English edition, a poor retranslation of the French. The Works, also London 1793, has a retranslation by Gibelon and edited by Franklin's friend, Benjamin Vaughan. This edition was ready for publication in 1791 but held up by the announcement of Franklin's grandson, William Temple Franklin, that he was publishing a edition. Ultimately, that edition was not published until 1818. In addition to the Autobiography this volume has over 30 other pieces by Franklin. Bookseller Inventory # 49793
