Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Library of America has produced a witty contribution to the celebration of its own fifth anniversary and the anniversary of the United States Constitution. Included are authoritative versions of Franklin's best-known writings (e.g., The Autobiography ), as well as 57 new attributions. Also included are all prefaces and maxims from the full run of Poor Richard's Almanack , plus a generous and prudent selection of other writings, both personal and public. The material is arranged by the eras of Franklin's long life. Lemay's erudite notes, an excellent index, and the volume's acid-free paper all attest to admirable publishing standards. For most libraries. Sally Linden, Wellesley Coll. Lib., Mass .
