“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”

― Benjamin Franklin



Benjamin Franklin is unquestionable one of the most iconic figures in early American history. From his political influence to his contributions to scientific knowledge, Benjamin Franklin will always be known as a foundational figure to the United States. ‘Life of Ben’ Franklin’ is the ‘most complete abridged biography’ (preface) of Ben Franklin taking extensively from Benjamin Franklin’s famous ‘Autobiography’ with information around his childhood, character, trade, Philadelphia paper, experiments with electricity, passages from England to America and back with the Stamp Act and other tax laws, Boston Tea-party, member of congress, signing the Declaration of Independence, letter to Washington, and much more!



This 1846 edition published in Franklin’s home, Philadelphia, is illustrated with 8 full-page plates written as a part of Lindsay and Blakiston’s ‘Young American’s Library’ series for young people to learn about the early history of America.
