Franklin's Way to Wealth : or 'Poor Richard Improved' (Annotated)
This book include Benjamin Franklin’s biography and his work.
THE PAGAN MYTHOLOGY of ancient Greece and Rome versified, accompanied with Philosophical Elucidations of the probable latent meaning of some of the Fables of the Ancients, on a theory entirely new. By R. ATKINS. Illustrated by twenty-two Cuts on Wood.
"This little work is intended as an easy Introduction to the Mythology of ancient Greece and Rome, and is particularly adapted to the use of Schools, being divested of the obscene allegories introduced by the ancients in their usual figurative style. It is certainly better calculated to convey a general idea of the subject, than any attempt of the kind which has yet fallen under our observation. The Poetical Illustrations are simple, and well calculated to the purpose of becoming a vehicle of instruction to juvenile minds, and the elucidations of the fables are plausible and ingenious."

“Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don't have brains enough to be honest.” ― Benjamin Franklin, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is the first American memoir and a classic text about the quest for self-improvement.
American icon Benjamin Franklin is known for many things: he published the famous Poor Richard's Almanack, helped found the world-famous University of Pennsylvania, and was the first Postmaster General of the United States. His iconography is everywhere. His likeness adorns, among other things, the United States' hundred-dollar bill. Franklin was a wildly intriguing personality, as his autobiography makes plain. From his hoarding of his pay as a teenager to buy books to his askance at such habits as drinking beer, from his work as a printer to his experiments with electricity, this is the story of Franklin's life--told as only he could tell it--in the years before the American Revolution.
Benjamin Franklin's writings represent a career of literary, scientific, and political efforts which extended nearly the entire eighteenth century and the birth of the United States. This heavily illustrated version of Franklin's autobiography includes his reflections on diverse questions such as philosophy and religion, social status, electricity, American national characteristics, war, and the status of women.
A classic in the American canon, Franklin's autobiography is a must-read for any serious student of American history.
