The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. Illustrated by Raymond Lufkin.

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin distills the complex and passionate intellectual strivings of the man whom David Hume called the first philosopher and great man of letters of the New World. Benjamin Franklin was a true renaissance man. A statesman and a diplomat, (he wa the person to sign all four major documents of the founding of America - The Declaration of Indepence, the Constitution, the Treaty of Alliance with France, and the Treary of Peace with England) he was also an author, scientist, and inventor, but he preferred to be known as a printer. Much of his power of this autobiography lies in the fact that in it Franklin gives expression to three important facets of the American Dream: the ideal of material success, the possibility of moral regeneration and renewal, and the hope of social progress. Written as a guide for his son.

  • "" ... Tells the story of Franklin's life from his humble beginnings to his emergence as a leading figure in the American colonies. In the process, it creates a portrait of Franklin as the quintessential American. Because of the book, Franklin became a role model for future generations of Americans, who hoped to emulate his rags-to-riches story. The Autobiography has also become one of the central works not just for understanding Franklin but for understanding America"--Cover, p. 4."
  • "In his autobiography we see him as a product of the Age of Enlightenment, a Yankee statesman who could use the language of Addison, Steele, Swift, and Defoe. Franklin asks himself, 'Who am I, how did I come to be, and why am I a human being as I am?' He answers with honesty, wit, and charm, which makes this possibly the best of all autobiographies."@en
