Description

This book is very scarce as I searched WorldCat, on October 23, 2012, and only 15 libraries in the world had a copy of this 1855 edition of this work.

Little needs to be said about "one of the greatest freethinkers of the colonial era." (Beard) He started the first free circulating library in Philadelphia in 1731, and, in 1744,  he founded the American Philosophical Society.

He was the author of "Poor Richard's Almanac." He was on the committee that was responsible for the Declaration of Independence (althought I will argue later that Thomas Paine was the author of this document). He signed the Declaration of Independence.

He met Voltaire in 1776 at the Academy of Science; there is a drawing of this meeting in the 1901 E. R. Dumont edition of the "Works of Voltaire," Vol. 1.

Turgot wrote about Franklin that "He has torn lightning from the sky; so soon he will tear their sceptres from the kings."
