1854 Civil War Soldier PROVENANCE Life of Benjamin Franklin Autobiography

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

― Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin’s famous ‘Autobiography!’ This book is often considered Franklin’s best-known book and is an important part of Americana. Originally known as ‘Memoirs’ by Franklin himself, ‘Autobiography’ covers each aspect of Franklin’s life including his studies in French, various letters he wrote while in Paris, the progress of his philosophies and experiments on electricity.

According to the Grolier American 100, Franklin’s ‘Memoirs’ is,“The most widely read of all American autobiographies, ‘Memoirs’ holds the essence of the American way of life.”

This early pre-Civil War era printing of ‘The Life of Dr. Benjamin Franklin’ was carried by soldier in the 32nd Regiment of the NYS Volunteers. See provenance information below!
