Summary
This collection of Franklin's works begins with letters sent from London (1757--1775) describing the events and diplomacy preceding the Revolutionary War. The volume also contains political satires, bagatelles, pamphlets, and letters written in Paris (1776--1785), where he represented the revolutionary United States at the court of Louis XVI, as well as his speeches given in the Constitutional Convention and other works written in Philadelphia (1785--1790), including his last published article, a searing satire against slavery. Also included are the prefaces to Poor Richard's Almanack (1733--1758) and their worldly, pungent maxims that have entered our American culture. Finally, the Autobiography, Franklin's last word on his greatest literary creation -- his own invented personality -- is presented here in a new edition. --
