Book Description :

Read about the fascinating life of Benjamin Franklin, prolific philosopher, inventor, and Founding Father of the United States, in this beautifully illustrated version of his autobiography. American icon Benjamin Franklin is known for many things: he published the famous Poor Richard's Almanack, helped found the world-famous University of Pennsylvania, and was the first Postmaster General of the United States. His iconography is everywhere. His likeness adorns, among other things, the United States' hundred-dollar bill. Franklin was a wildly intriguing personality, as his autobiography makes plain. From his hoarding of his pay as a teenager to buy books, to his disapproval of habits like drinking beer, from his work as a printer, to his experiments with electricity, this is the story of Franklin's life--told as only he could tell it--in the years before the American Revolution. Benjamin Franklin's writings represent a career of literary, scientific, and political efforts which extended nearly the entire eighteenth century and the birth of the United States. This heavily illustrated version of Franklin's autobiography includes his reflections on diverse questions such as philosophy and religion, social status, electricity, American national characteristics, war, and the status of women. A classic in the American canon, Franklin's autobiography is a must-read for any serious student of American history.

Book Description :

Benjamin Franklin is the traditional name for the unfinished record of his own life written by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790; however, Franklin himself appears to have called the work his Memoirs. Benjamin Franklin had a tortuous publication history after Franklin's death, this work has become one of the most famous and influential examples of an autobiography ever written. In 1791, the first edition appeared, in French rather than English, as Mémoires de la vie privée de Benjamin Franklin, published in Paris. This translation of Part One only was based on a flawed transcript made of Franklin's manuscript before he had revised it. This French translation was then retranslated into English in two London publications of 1793, and one of the London editions served as a basis for a retranslation into French in 1798 in an edition which also included a fragment of Part Two. The first three parts of the Autobiography were first published together (in English) by Franklin's grandson, William Temple Franklin, in London in 1818, in Volume 1 of Memoirs of the Life and Writings of Benjamin Franklin. W.T. Franklin did not include Part Four because he had previously traded away the original holograph of the Autobiography for a copy that contained only the first three parts. Furthermore, he felt free to make unauthoritative stylistic revisions to his grandfather's autobiography, and on occasion followed the translated and retranslated versions mentioned above rather than Ben Franklin's original text. Benjamin Franklin text was the standard version of the Autobiography for half a century, until John Bigelow purchased the original manuscript in France and in 1868 published the most reliable text that had yet appeared, including the first English publication of Part Four. In the 20th century, important editions by Max Ferrand and the staff of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California (Benjamin Franklin's Memoirs: Parallel Text Edition, 1949) and by Leonard W. Labaree (1964, as part of the Yale University Press edition of The Papers of Benjamin Franklin) improved on Bigelow's accuracy. In 1981, J. A. Leo Lemay and P.M. Zall produced The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin: A Genetic Text, attempting to show all revisions and cancellations in the holograph manuscript. This, the most accurate edition of all so far published, served as a basis for Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography: A Norton Critical Edition and for the text of this autobiography printed in the Library of America's edition of Franklin's Writings. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin also became the first full-length recorded book in history.The initial recorded release of Autobiography was voiced by actor Michael Rye and released in 1969. Blessed with enormous talents and the energy and ambition to go with them, Franklin was a statesman, author, inventor, printer, and scientist. He helped draft the Declaration of Independence and later was involved in negotiating the peace treaty with Britain that ended the Revolutionary War. He also invented bifocals, a stove that is still manufactured, a water-harmonica, and the lightning rod. Franklin's extraordinary range of interests and accomplishments are brilliantly recorded in his Autobiography, considered one of the classics of the genre. Benjamin Franklin by the author Benjamin Franklin is a great book highly recommended to read..

मेरा पैंफलेट संयोगवश किसी लाइओंस नामक सर्जन के हाथों पड़ गया। वे एक लेखक भी थे। उन्होंने ‘इनफैलिबिलिटी ऑफ ह्यूमन जजमेंट’ नामक शीर्षक से पुस्तक भी लिखी थी। इससे हमें आपस में परिचित होने का मौका मिला। मेरी ओर उनका काफी रुझान बढ़ा। वे मुझसे संबंधित विषयों पर चर्चा करने आ जाया करते। उन्होंने मुझे ‘फेबल ऑफ द बीज’ के लेखक डॉ. मानडेविले से परिचित कराया। लाइओंस ने मेरी मुलाकात डॉ. पेंबर्टन से भी कराई, जिन्होंने कभी सर आइजक न्यूटन से मिलने का अवसर उपलब्ध कराने का वादा किया। उनसे (न्यूटन से) मिलने की मेरी बड़ी इच्छा भी थी, लेकिन ऐसा हो न सका। अब तक मैं लगातार गॉडफ्रे के साथ रहता रहा। वह मेरे घर के एक हिस्से में अपने बीवी-बच्चों के साथ रहता था और दुकान का एक भाग उसने अपने ग्लेजियर व्यवसाय के लिए रखा था। गणित में खोया रहने के कारण वह थोड़ा ही काम कर पाता था। मिसेज गॉडफ्रे ने अपनी रिश्तेदारी में ही एक लड़की से मेरे विवाह की बात उठाई। वह हमें मिलाने के लिए अकसर अवसर निकाल लेती थीं। धीरे से मेरी ओर से प्रेम-प्रसंग शुरू हो गया। चूँकि लड़की भी योग्य थी, मुझे बार-बार भोजन पर बुलाकर और हमें अकेला छोड़कर प्रोत्साहित किया जाता रहा। मिसेज गॉडफ्रे ने हमारी मध्यस्थता की। —इसी आत्मकथा से

Book Description :

Printer and publisher, author and educator, scientist and inventor, statesman and philanthropist, Benjamin Franklin was the very embodiment of the American type of self-made man. In 1771, at the age of 65, he sat down to write his autobiography, "having emerged from the poverty and obscurity in which I was born and bred to a state of affluence and some degree of reputation in the world, and having gone so far through life with a considerable share of felicity." The result is a classic of American literature. On the eve of the tercentenary of Franklin's birth, the university he founded has selected the Autobiography for the Penn Reading Project. Each year, for the past fifteen years, the University of Pennsylvania has chosen a single work that the entire incoming class, and a large segment of the faculty and staff, read and discuss together. For this occasion the University of Pennsylvania Press will publish a special edition of Franklin's Autobiography, including a new preface by University president Amy Gutmann and an introduction by distinguished scholar Peter Conn. The volume will also include four short essays by noted Penn professors as well as a chronology of Franklin's life and the text of Franklin's Proposals Relating to the Education of Youth in Pennsylvania, a document resulting in the establishment of an institution of higher education that ultimately became the University of Pennsylvania. No area of human endeavor escaped Franklin's keen attentions. His ideas and values, as Amy Gutmann notes in her remarks, have shaped the modern University of Pennsylvania profoundly, "more profoundly than have the founders of any other major university of college in the United States." Franklin believed that he had been born too soon. Readers will recognize that his spirit lives on at Penn today. Essay contributors: Richard R. Beeman, Paul Guyer, Michael Weisberg, and Michael Zuckerman.
