About this Item: GRIN Publishing, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. Auflage. Language: English. Brand new Book. Essay from the year 2002 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Sewanee the University of the South, course: English 377: American Literature until 1860, 1 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Benjamin Franklin was one of the most famous and important participants in the American Revolution of the 1760's to 1780's. Like 55 other important political figures of that time, he was a delegate of the Continental Congress who signed the Declaration of Independence. He is the author of many valuable maxims that are used in everyday conversations still today. Without doubt - Franklin is one of the first celebrities and most remembered political figures in US history. He had an enormous impact on the new American self-confidence and, even more important, the American way of life. But when looking at his Autobiography, many people argue that it does not include any reference to his achievements for society. In contrast, it is stated that these works seem to be revolving only around the events that had a purpose for him personally. Is Franklin a mere egoist or someone who cares about others, too? The first evidence of Franklin mentioning aid to others in the Autobiography is assistance to the "Tallow-Chandler and Soap-Boiler" (Franklin, 542) job of his father. Like all children in the 18th century he is involved in work for the family. This is not surprising, yet. Besides, he learns in his childhood, that "nothing was useful which was not honest" (Franklin, 543). If we look at honesty as a part of respecting and also helping people, Franklin therefore must have been taught mature behavior at an early age. His working career starts when he is still a kid. Franklin's inclinations are to become a printer. From the age of 12 on, he does an apprenticeship at his brother's business. Franklin tells us about his time there: "In a little time I made great proficiency in the Business, and became a useful hand to my Brother". Seller Inventory # APC9783656850106

Memoirs of the Life and Writings of: Benjamin Franklin (Autobiography),

About this Item: London, Printed for Henry Colburn, British and Foreign Public Library, Conduit Street., 1818. Hardcover. Condition: Fair. No Jacket. 1st Edition. This early 20th century decorative leather book comprises the Memoirs of the Life of Benjamin Franklin, Part I.* Title: Memoirs of the Life and Writings of Benjamin Franklin, LL.D., F.R.S. &c., Minister Plenipotentiary from the United States of America, at the court of France, and for the Treaty of Peace and Independence with Great Britain, &c. &c. Written by Himself to a Late Period, and continued to the Time of His Death, by His Grandson; William Temple Franklin. Now First Published from the Original MSS. Comprising the Private Correspondence and Public Negotiations of Dr. Franklin, and a Selection From His Political, Philosophical, and Miscellaneous Works. Author: Benjamin Franklin (Autobiography), William Temple Franklin (Late Period Author) Publisher: London, Printed for Henry Colburn, British and Foreign Public Library, Conduit Street. Edition: First Edition, Published 1818. Printed by A.J. Valpy, Tooke's Court, Chancery Lane. Binding/description: Full brown period leather hardcover, gilt decorated spine with 5 raised bands, salmon/blue marble endpapers and leaf edges, frontispiece portrait of author opposite title page. *Volume I (only) of a (3) volume set, includes Memoirs of the Life of Benjamin Franklin, Part I. Note: The "Memoirs" were begun by Franklin in 1771 and continued until the period of the Revolution. An interval of 13 years interrupted the continuity, to be resumed while Franklin resided at Paris, and concluded upon his return to the States. Franklin's own writing carries the life to his fifty-first year; the notes of his grandson, Temple Franklin, carries the account to his grandfather's death. Temple Franklin procrastinated in editing and publication. In March 1791, a French edition of the work came out - translator unknown - a German and Swedish edition appeared, the French was translated into English, American editions followed - and it was not until 1817 that Temple Franklin issued his edition of Benjamin Franklin's autobiography and papers. This was, of course, the most direct and authentic Franklin chronicle, and has remained, as source material in regard to the great statesman, paramount. This book is a rare first, and only, quarto edition of the work. Dimensions: 1.5W × 8.75D × 11H inches. Condition Notes: Fair; detached front board, worn and spotted covers, extremities worn , personal ex-libris label pasted to front endpaper, typed note page adhered to front free endpaper, strong square spine, end papers lightly foxed, clean light age-toned interior pages. A nice copy. Seller Inventory # 002462
