First edition. Jacket faintly rubbed. 2006 Hard Cover. This engaging book reveals Benjamin Franklin’s human side—his tastes and habits, his enthusiasms, and his devotion to democracy and the people of the United States. Three hundred years after his birth, we may remember Franklin’s famous Autobiography, or his status as framer of the Declaration of Independence and the peace with Great Britain, or his experiments in electricity, or perhaps his sage advice on diligence and thrift.

Franklin was, however, a man of vast contradictions, as Edmund Morgan demonstrates in this brilli... View more info
